The year started with attaching the new canvas to the roof. Lasse had made up a prop to hold the canvas under the edge of the roof while he nailed it down
Control cables being wired back into the electrical cabinate
Once the canvas had been well bedded in with home made roof paint (to the original recipe of carbon and cooked linseed oil) we started building up the various cable runs and equipment mountings. When we laid the canvas, it covered all the holes for screws, bolts, vents, cables etc., so before starting, Lasse and Micke marked the position of each on the roof above. Lasse is now transfering those positions back onto the canvas with a plumb bob.
Cable runs being laid out. Almost all of the original (1940s) boxes were re-useable, only the tops needed replacing.
With the main canvas down, the headlamp housing could be re-fitted. Note the extra strips of canvas to seal the join.
But the result is worth it!
3 pantographs were renovated during the year
