Work Day 12th September 2020

Apart from applying a few more coats of cockpit green paint to some fittings on the sides of the LCP cabin walls the three main roof sections are now complete.

Next step is to refit the light fittings which is the main task for next Saturday. All seven fluorescent light fittings have been refurbished, reassembled and tested. See the accompanying photos (apologies for the inadvertent advertising) showing a before and after.


The original fluorescent tubes were replaced by LED tubes a few years back.

Work will continue off site to fabricate new diffusers in a style as close to the originals as possible as only two original diffusers survive. A reminder that these are the two styles fitted followed by an experiment to put a curve into a flat sheet of diffuser material.
