Project 'DNF' - No.5 Refit

A much smaller team yesterday, but progress made.  We worked mainly on the decking plates, drilling and preparing them for painting.  Marking out the holes had to be done from underneath and the method used was to place the plate, spray each of the holes and then use a 10mm drill to spot the centres.
This worked well and all the bolts dropped through.  Painting has now commenced, once complete, we can seal and bolt down.

In the ever active paint shop, more component parts received another layer or two.  We had hoped to fit the new pinion - but, just where did that safely stored key go?
