Weekend Progress on our Passenger Car!

Click on the Picture for a closer look!
Yesterday, we had a great team turnout as Lance, Richard, Paul, Wilson, Jason P., James and Dave appeared at the appointed hour. The team focused on furthering the building of the passenger car to be pulled by our speeder. The work went quickly. The frame has its deck attached and is upside down with a fresh coat of yellow paint and the seat backrest supports are all cut ready to fit. Next job will be to add the wheels and axles to the frame after which it will be flipped over again for the seating to be added. In order to be able to do that, our work last week to fit a rolling chain hoist to a beam overhead will prove its worth as the assembly will by then be too heavy to move by hand. For the record, it was -12 degrees C with a wind chill of -19 degrees C but fortunately it was somewhat warmer inside the roundhouse.
