After having her bottom, front end and one side washed, today engineering works got underway. 

We need to remove the rams which operate the stabilisers to repair the ram top seals. 
To do this, the arms need to be removed. There are 6 large pins that need to
be removed on each corner. 

Today at Western Depot, the skilled staff and Bob wielded heating and cutting gear, magnetic base drills and VERY large hammers. Stubborn those pins, we managed to remove 2 only! 

Better news, we have a cracking good access steps built instead of a stepladder. Some wag called it “The Stairway to Heaven!”  We’ll reserve judgement.
