Default RV-10 internal tank rib drawing

Could someone shoot an iPhone picture, or copy a .PDF or similar, of the drawing of the internal tank rib used on the RV-10.

Alternately a photo of an actual rib, with a ruler positioned next to one of the lightening hole/slosh holes would work.

I need to see it for a different project.

email preferred over PM,

thanks

Sent you a mail. Send me your e-mail and I will send you the entire tank section if that helps.

Cannot help with the second part as mine are built and flying

I'm trying to find out the diameter of the holes in the interior ribs, the ones that let fuel slosh through to different compartments.

thread bump.

Could someone who is building an RV-10 wing please measure the diameter of the fuel-slosh/lightening holes in the internal tank ribs?

Thanks.
