Getting Drivers ready for paint
The drivers are on blocks adjacent to the shop. Some hard to reach areas are being painted with a brush prior to spraying the primer.

Getting Drivers ready for paint

Saturday, April 21, 2018 by MC

After the drive pins were put in we moved the drivers back to the shop and peened over the flanges on the inside of the wheels. We also cleaned up the castings a bit to prepare them for paint. As the weather seemed to be breaking a bit we decided to move them outside so they could be painted. They sat for several weeks before the weather broke warm with no wind and we finally were able to paint.
