Paul Wood, Pete Weight & Colin were the working party today with most of the other regulars either on holiday, at work, or unwell.
While Colin fitted the N/S pump housing Paul and Pete carried on with rubbing down the wings. We then did a test fit of the N/S wings before Pete started to put colour on them. We took the O/S locker off to try and straighten the front mountings, this is not going to happen without some serious heat so I unbolted the hanger, this can be jacked back into place and the holes "adjusted" to make everything fit. The front "skin" was replaced and the front checkerplate fitted and the locker lifted back into place. The mountings for the O/S pump housing were drilled and fitted, so this is ready for the "skin" to be fitted and then can be attached. While this was going on Pete got the first coat of red on the wings, this needs to harden for at least 24 hours before being cut back and the next coat applied. I will sort out next working party dates later this week...... as they say "watch this space".
