C119 Report - 12/28/2014 - Happy Holidays

The ambulance is patiently waiting for work to start, so we decided not to wait until next year.

Herb got things going by removing some of the old body filler.
Image

He then removed an old storage door and cleaned out rust and debris.

Paul is working on the park bench. He found getting the corrosion off the metal parts challenging.
Image

So he and Bob Cox found a better solution - sand blasting.

Once the pieces were cleaned, a coat of primer was applied.

I went out and bought a portable tool cart to keep things organized and handy. Bob supplied an extra set of hands to facilitate assembly.

The finished cart, ready to go.
