Yesterday I had to tap the holes for the clean out plate on the fuel tank.  This piece will be welded to the tank and a top plate will be bolted to it.

Also, tapping was needed on the bed log plates.

How could we forget about the tank.  We realized the metal fabricator put the hole for the sump in the wrong corner.  Tank needs to be re-cut and bent.  The hole should be on the left side.
