1005 in repose

Here is SN 1005 parked outside Carbarn 3 for Member's Day. The lower panels are being prepped for paint. The other side is already painted. The car looks good!

What's going on with 1005? First, a complex repair on the brackets which hold up the radial coupler - a lot more on that job is coming. Second, the seats are being sent out for re-upholstery.

Why does it look so good while being parked in the dusty shop? It's kept under plastic. Here you see ropes set up to lift the plastic off the car.
