Side Door Sheet Metal Panel Replacement – July 13, 2014

Orig Door Panel
The problem – door panel is very rusted and needs replacement.

 

Chuck Trabert spent the day replacing the face on the bottom half of one of the side door 16 gauge sheet metal panels on the Milwaukee Road Dynamometer car and also replaced all three deceslostat air brake hoses and fittings. Pauline Trabert took pictures and helped Chuck as much as possible.
