Apart from the work on the “stump” and bottle-screw, Serina also needed a fair bit of work on her centre-plate.
As far as I am aware, this winter is the first time that Serina’s centre-plate has been removed in 10 years and this is what it looked like.
Simon ground off the rust and treated it with a rust-preventer before priming:
epoxying – 4 times.
Followed by a rub-down and undercoating
and painting again.
Isn’t that beautiful?
