Week 25 This week we get the track cable
The bits we received
And what we did with them
I found the wire was very soft, which makes it easy to bend. However, I think it would be easily damaged by the little pips on the back of the brackets, so I cut these pips off.
The brackets are then glued to the bulkhead. (The bulkhead was removed from the main hull as I had a damaged part that it waiting to be replaced.)
Note that the two end brackets, that take the cable eyes are not fitted yet. These will be fitted when the cable is finally fitted.
The cable was made up and the ends glued on with super glue. Quite straight forward.
Like last week, it's better to leaving final fitting of the cable until after any camo pattern has ben applied.
