Stripped off the old underbody bits and added new bolsters and started in on installing a new underbody.





In a time like ours seemings and portents signify. Ours is a generation when dogs howl and the skin crawls on the skull with its beast's foreboding.

And here's what goes on the other end of the car.....had a pair of Lobaugh ends and dome parts - just a matter of rolling some sheet brass and soldering everything together....

Have to build a cradle to hold it in place next. Probably also have to make it removable if only for painting it vs. the car body. Have to find a suitable sheet metal screw,

Thanks, guys!

Got the rest of the underbody installed:



That one screw secures the tank in place.

Got some paint of the car & tank and reassembled, so now it's touch up and work on the roof.
