Calliope Girl 78


I started with a light sanding of the battery box inside and out:  inside to clean up the new tabbing; outside to prepare the exterior for primer and paint.

Next, I installed all the support cleats for the top that I’d pre-cut last time.  Then, from a blank slightly larger than needed, I cut the top panel to fit and began work on the large access hatch and support cleats.  I had to leave the shop before I completed the hatch, however.

During the rest of the day, I drove to the tank vendor, located in another part of the state, and picked up the new water tank, which I looked forward to getting into place soon in the forward cabin.

Total time billed on this job today: 5.5 hours

0600 Weather Observation: 39°, cloudy, fog. Forecast for the day: Mostly cloudy, 57°
