Good Morning,
With some long weekends coming up, here is when I plan to be out at the shop:

Sunday 2-9
Sunday 2-16
Monday 2-17

If you can make any of these sessions please let me know!

Here is the scope of work to be completed:

-Rich W. is matching North-side cupola to South side
-Install fir flooring
-Begin prepping siding for installation
-Remove rotted interior siding under south cupola

I’m sure we will find other projects as well.

I have been researching and reaching out to people (Wayne York, WAB Hist. Society) to figure out a color for the car. Pictures show a brown or red oxide. In my opinion, the car should not be in a bright NKP red as it was in the park. Thoughts on this are welcomed.
