1-Sept-2012 After two hours of gentle grinding then trial fitting, marking and grinding with the angle grinder, I have achieve an acceptable fit of the cab front to the boiler jacketing. Next we grab the rivet gun and buck some rivets in. The cab front should stay bolted to the locomotive when finished. to facilitate servicing I will make the cab sides an back removable. So, the cab front will be held to the sides with eight bolts (four per side). To maintain appearances, the rest of the decorative rivets are installed into holes with countersunk backs so they end up flush on the inside (allows the inside corner angle bracket to be bolted on).
