The sump tank gets mounting tabs on the rounded side, to allow it to be connected to the gear bulkhead with AN3 bolts later. These tabs are made out of 2 ply of BID laying flat (3″x4″) and 2 ply of TRIAX (2″x4″) laid on the sump in and ‘L’ shape to overlap the BID.

Here’s a shot of the tank with the low fuel sensor installed.
