Default Fuel leak

Hi all

I had one rivet leaking since I got my RV4 but suddenly my right tank has the dreaded blue streaks both inboard and along the rear edge. Is there anyone in the Tampa area who has experience in fixing leaks who could show me how to do it, please!

Thanks, Gary

I am not, but it is not a difficult task. There are several step by steps instructions with photos on-line. If you read them all you are as trained as anyone... good luck, and have fun doing it.

Default Another -4 in Tampa

Friend of mine with same issue ---- If enough of us get together and make it viable, maybe we could get Jesse Saint to go into the fuel tank repair business in a major way? My -6A could use a slosh cleanout and reseal.
