Last Saturdays work session 7-31-10

A really beautiful day in Oyster Bay!
We arrived to find both sets of valve gear assemblies waiting to be worked on and we did not dissapoint!
I put two  of our new volunteers to work removing paint and polishing up the right side assembly. After that was completed, they coated the rods with Cosmoline to prep it for a short stay outdoors before it is to be put into storage.
At the same time, we removed the last of the stubborn paint from the turntable motor frame assembly and applied a thick coat of Extend Rust converter. Right now the frame is a light black color, but after the next coat, it should be darker.
When we return to Oyster Bay on Saturday August 14th, we will complete the second coat and by the end of the day, we should have been able to apply the first of two primer coats. Grey is the color of choice!
