The Stanley Steam Car - Model EX - 1907

Winter 2014

This winter the car has had a complete strip-back of all the sub-chassis and springs and has had primer, undercoat and top coat applied. The results were accepable but I have decided that another layer of topcoat and a varnish will be applied at the end of the season.

I also decided that the tyres and inner-tubes needed to be changed this year as they were cracking quite badly on the side walls, even though the tread was still good for another serveral tens of thousands of miles. The tyres were easy to obtain but I had to take out a mortgage to pay for them!! The wheels themselves will be painted later when time permits.
