Work continued on the outside boards under the car. These required more trimming and fitting as there is more hardware protruding along the edge. In this photo Bill K. and Don are doing some measuring.
In the photo to the left Bill K. is using a large socket wrench to put in the lag bolt for one of the eyes.
This photo shows one of the stringers in place. It will be fastened to the car with a bracket welded to the steel on the end sill.
Even though we were limited in the number of work sessions over the winter a fair amount was accomplished, particularly by Craig in his heated workshop.
Thanks to John Engs for contributing photos.
