One accomplishment was to place lock nuts on the bolts (of which there are many) on the underside of the car. This is a tedious task but very important to prevent loosening as the car shakes, rattles, and rolls along the track. Here Bill and Ron are working along one of the bolsters.
The last project for June was to start installing the moisture barrier under the car. Those of us with old necks and shoulders did the cutting of the sheets, in this case Marshall, John, and Tom.

Don and Ron are drilling a hole in the end sill for the rod to pass through. The sill was put in place and marked for drilling, then taken down to drill the hole.
