Re-Fitting the  American
Page 2

While waiting for rough castings to complete the plumbing, I decided to start on the detailing.
The wheels got red centres and white rims.

And the cow-catcher got a coat of red as well.

Even after using quality paint stripper on the cab, I had to take it apart to clean the accumulation of old paint out of the inside corners.

Once wire-brushed, it was back together for primer and then a first coat of paint.


Got the cab back on (temporarily) to decide whether or not to paint the roof. Decided to leave it black.

Headlamp back on (to stay).

Made a new number from brass sheet, renumbering from #1 to #7

Got the new number plate on.

Spent a LONG morning figuring out how to fit all the new plumbing into the existing can space!

And the work continues! Maybe the end is in sight ......

.... and the work continues! ....
