Project 'DNF' - No.5 Refit

A thin film of rust due to recent rain had encroached over the deck where paint had not invaded.  It was necessary to skim over the surface with a wire brush before we could complete the red oxide painting.  With the sun warming up the steel, conditions were ideal to finish the job
Yesterday, a new set of battery cables were obtained.  These have helped us progress the cable management system.  Nothing too complicated, but involved preparing cable trays to link the battery isolator to the battery, along side the engine.  Flexible conduit will be used to reach more out of the way items such as the fuel pump.  This work is about 95% complete now.

In the woodwork shop, marking out and cutting of some of the new engine cover components has commenced. More on this story next week.
