Further lowering of the W&L covered van into Ffestiniog 59 van continues. It is fortunate that there are plenty of photos on the internet to refer to for details – although I spent a lot of time around the van I never took note of its details and never looked to compare it to original format as I am now doing.
After that photo was taken I shortened the final side and so it’s now time to cut the doors out (leaving the frames). The following challenge is to make the louvred doors. There are various white metal ones available on the web but I need them to be light because this wagon will be heavy when it’s finished – more of that later.
