The leading edge of one of our wings has some plywood installed in our first picture. The next picture we added a bowl to help make needed spacing for the carburetor heat system. The fuel tank top has been welded in place in the third picture and we added some water to the oil tank and found some leaks that we need to fix. Both tanks will have a pressure check done before permanently installed in the Nieuport 24 aircraft. In the bottom row of pictures new oil lines have been made and installed. Please click on all pictures to enlarge. Thank you.
