Dave & Ken & Martin have made a great job of fitting the bonnet latches. Once the bonnet is fitted nicely, we will take it off for blasting & painting.

Ken offered up the front wings, and Dave dismantled the bonnet. Both have gone for blasting. The wings might need repairing before they are stove enamelled.
