Some of the boards covered hardware and had to be fitted over projecting nuts, etc. Here Mike is chiseling a pocket in one of the boards.
Furring strips were placed at the ends of the car for the paneling.
Here is a close-up view of a corner.
The orange piece in this photo was made from the above drawing.
As of this posting, John Weiss tells us that all of the castings have been completed by the foundry in Texas.
Thanks again to John Engs for help with the photos.
