I have a blogger friend the insists on falsely accusing me of neglecting Anna. Two nights ago I went to my friends house to star gaze. If you folks do not know Comet Lulian is here for just a few days and then will not return for 1013 year. I went over to Michael's, just as I do for every celestial special event to observe it. We sat out in front of Luna which is parked in his yard. Watching Lulian outside of Luna... perfect ring to it eh? No, that was cheating and neglecting Anna he said. I should have towed Anna over to his house and sat in front her instead he claimed. Well, I want to set the record straight... I am not neglecting Anna. How quickly he forgot about the new axles I put on her last week. I know he did not see any parts of this little project....
The water fill door was bent by my zealous use of a compounder. Just recently my pick up truck cap flipped in a wind storm and broke out Anna's front window. But it also tore off the water fill door. I took it as a sign and began fabricating a new one. Here it is roughed out of .032 2024 T3 Alclad.
A little fine tuning of the fit was required. No big deal.
But before I buck rivet it on, I thought I would polish the surrounding areas as to not catch any tool edges on it again.
A little polishing turns into a couple of hours. Not bad for two hours. I have a new system I have been using to polish. It works very well and I will share the process soon enough.
Hope this sets the record straight....
Dummying up a dummy knob - Door was originally drilled for a Kwik-set knob Baldwin has a different definition. A few more shims with glue and we'll be all set.
