Restoration of Class 119 Driving Motor Brake Composite W51073

Window surround Bye Bye Orange

Progress reported on 24/01/10.

And so ends the third day of work on this vehicle with much progress. The main task of the last couple of days is to kiss goodbye to the terrible orange Formica that plagues the vestibule. This will have to have new Formica installed as the original underneath is far too damaged to be saved.

As in the photograph, other work included the varnishing and fitting of window surrounds. This doesn't sound like much to write about but the task of stripping seven layers of "ancient" varnish and paint off to reveal the wood, to then stain it and varnish it is a painstaking task.
