* T-JE-A20 (MF 701) Link Box, Transport Box, Update5

Posted on June 18th, 2014 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.

That’s now 2 coats of Bonda Primer added to the link box. I’m going to start on the grey topcoat next week once I’ve allowed the primer to dry for 7 days as it suggests on the tin.

As you can see from the first picture the holes are drilled for the door pins and clips. The welding unit I have is useless to say the least and I’m having trouble getting hold of a good MIG welder to finish off the door, I need to weld in place the pins and latches. A couple of weeks now and I should be able to use this implement. I’ve asked Chris at vintagebrassplates.com to supply an authentic brass plate as there was no sign of one on the original box I was given.

I took the box to work on Friday and asked Paul a couple of units down from where I work if he could weld the door parts for me. This first picture shows one pin tacked in place and the second one ready to be tacked.

Door Start


Once the two pins into the bottom and the two spring clips there tacked into place Paul could relocate to a flat surface and complete the job.

Door Weld

Than it was just a case of making sure nothing had moved. I tried the door in place. It fitted really well.

Door Finished

Now its a rub down and a primer coat then reassemble the spring clip mechanism to finish the job.

So close now Update 6 must surely be pictures of the finished item?
