My Great Lakes 2T-1A-2 Rebuild Diary 2009.
I need to make some new wheel spat attachment brackets. As the old ones were damaged.
I sandwiched three bits of metal together.
Splitting the front cowl. I am not following the MOD exactly.
The metal strip will hold both sides together.
A small difference to the official MOD the strip of metal goes further round the front.
I match drilled the holes in the securing strip before cutting to ensure both halfs are kept in the exact position when resecured.
Ready to cut! I used a very very thin cuttng wheel to keep the gap small. I will also resin seal the cut.
Cut! Here you can see another slight change from the original MOD. I am using rivets on the lower half rather than screws on both sides.
The rivets will be countersunk. Whne painted they will be hidden. So it should look nice. At this time I am not sure about countersunk screws and tinnerman washers for the top half.
