Over the last few weeks we have been fitting the floor timbers, this has taken time due each timber having to have each end recessed to avoid hitting the rivet heads so they can fit flat against the chassis, as you can see 95% is completed all we need to fit now is under the vacuum cylinder end.
The cabin sides have been given a top coat of brown, the plan is to 2nd coat it when the floor has been completed.
The axle boxes are coming along, all have been machined and new inserts are being made to make up the wear, these will be screwed to the boxes and machined to suite each horn guild. All the horn guide faces have now been grinded flat.
The castings for the sand box bottoms have been cast and machined awaiting fitting when the plugs are completed.
