CA&E 316

Mike and Jeff crawl under 316 to get all the specs and measurements on 316’s main reservoirs that need replacement. 

Roof Color

Another large section of original canvas is found on 316 that has the maroon color. 

Gathering up this weeks parts to go out for sand blasting and painting by our professional painter and metal worker Kyle. 

The corners of the roof / tack molding area on 316 are made of custom cut pieces. Thee has used a large piece of wood, cut it down, and traced the pattern we need, using a combo of the old pieces and measurements from the car. Here he is cutting out his piece on the band saw. Very time intensive for one small piece. 

CA&E 458
Earlier in the day Mike and Jeff cut the upper trolley boards to size for 458. Then they were laid out to have the ends squared up which Mike is doing here.
Before leaving for the day, Jeff applied the first coat of another FRTM special recipe paint.
