Painting is gathering momentum. The old mess room is kept at above freezing and the first parts, mainly small items and nearly all black are starting to make their way into the red container, where they’ll be stored until needed for reassembly.
Another ‘background’ task is the cleaning and sorting of nuts and bolts. We’re quite some way from needing these but a substantial mountain of fastenings is being created. Steve Lacey is looking after these and some sorting racks are being set up in the green container.
Parts removed count:
In-process parts drying on the racks in the old mess room.
Finished items await their re-use.
Just a very few of the thousands of nuts and bolts that will be needed. Many will be recycled but there will also be hundreds, if not thousands, of new ones to be bought
