Weekend action in the Allan C. Williams car barn.
In the final stretch for applying the canvas to CA&E 458- literally.
Chief Car Officer Jeff Bennett carefully stretched each section of the roof canvas. He then put in the top row of tacks into the canvas. Then cutting away the excess canvas, trimming the burlap and folding the canvas up under itself.
Jeff worked intensely to keep a nice fold line, After that, Jeff nailed in the lower tacks to secure the canvas to the car. What's left is a beautiful edge between roof and car body.
Following is a couple of pictures of the final product of applying the canvas to the roof of CA&E 458
Fred Biederman picked up all the paint supplies needed to mix up the secret formula for the canvas paint. Fred will be doing that just in time for the next work session.
