Two tasks were progressed today on the Brake Third.
Much grinding, hammering and chiselling was applied to one of the vertical frame supports, which needs to be removed in order to facilitate the wider window reveal, for the proposed extra seating bay.
This was the second day of work on this item, and finally the weld attaching the metal socket to the cantrail gave up. The resultant piece of hardwood will be re-used as the window sill frame.
Also, following recent welding work on the brake end panelling, primer and undercoat have been applied to this.
We await further bolting & welding to attach the steel corner plates to the outside of this panelling.
