SNCB 21013 - Update 15

Two-thirds of the bodyside panels on the north side have been fixed in place with new bolts, replacing the previous rivets - the final result will look the same however. Window sills and body panel joins have seen attention with the application of filler and green primer as necessary.

The internal framework is cleaned and ready for painting.

Progress was made throughout the day on painting the remaining exposed framework gloss black, to help protect the frame from corrosion. The painting was finished shortly after this photo was taken.
