CA&E 458 Car Restoration News Part 2

August 21, 2022 11:42 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Chief Car Officer Jeff Bennett is installed a newly rebuilt brake valve on CA&E 458

John and Thee are continuing on repairing the rot damage in the thresholds

Jeff back under the car to work on the main brake valve assembly. There is a lot of contaminates in the brake system from it sitting open for years, so every line and system has to be opened up and cleaned.

Kyle giving the smoking compartment one last wipe down, with hopes to get a coat of primer on it today

And John… poor guy, seems like he’s always chipping away paint. What can we say? He knows his work well!

Mike looking up a Jeff, wondering what in the world will Jeff ask for next!

The North end of 458 has had all the lines removed, cleaned and the rebuilt brake valve installed.
