For the CPL door bumpers I didnt fancy drilling through my coach so seated the etches in a drop of susperglue applied with pin, then used plastic rod the bumpers which I trimmed later. They can make a massive improvement but you do have to take care to try and cut them off the fret evenly and line them all up well or they stand out - quite tricky to be honest.

I forgot to say I made a guide from a piece of card with a slot for the hinge then two holes to mark where to line them up.

The end of tonight's session on the bogies. Just a bit of brake rodding to add to the other end and the tie rods, then to do it again for other one. Pleased with the results.

Buffer beams made up and put on tonight. I posed the body over the bogies to get an idea of the how it will look when finished and its shaping up nicely. Also ordered some half round brass beading as I intend on finishing it as a pre-war lot.

Truss rod angles and one of the footboards were put on tonight progress was hampered by the floor not sitting tight to the body, worked out one of the buffers beams was sitting slightly proud and pushing the end, an easy fix once found.

Good evening. Its been a while, I lost my mojo for a little bit but I've been at it again tonight. Added the other footboard and made up the battery box tonight its just posed for now but I think it looks the part.
