I corked the left tank along with the tank channels and then spent time figuring out the path of insertion.

With the channels in place the fuel tank will not fit. Instead have the inboard channels clecoed, insert the fuel tank and then slip the outboard channels between the rib and tank via the lightening holes.

I measured as best as I could for the placement of the fuel drain and fuel supply holes, but missed a bit. The hole in the rib was closest and was only enlarged a tiny bit. I may consider adding some scrap aluminum to the fuel drain hole just to make it look better.
