Not shown are rubber mats on the sides, below, and behind the fuel tank, and on the starboard wall that the tank will rest against. The new fuel tank touches only rubber mats on all sides.

When you are welding repairs and grinding them there is no way to know if the blades are balanced by just looking at it. You put it on a balancer and remove metal from the back of the prop until it is balanced.
