Maintenance/Repair Details:
For a long time I have looked at the throttle control area and planned to improve the area. We stated in the previous entry how we sorted out the morse control and now have continued the work by massively improving the area.

The old plastic leather effect covering which was glued completely around the morse control was cut across the joint of the unit, it came away from the origin wood backing easily. The re-exposed wood was stripped of old glue, sanded back and several coats of wood stain applied. A new wood strip was cut, also stained and fixed to cover the area where the covering was cut.

General tiding of the area carried out, step back and admire the job.

Maintenance/Repair Details:
Have at long last tackled the issue of a pitted and unsightly morse throttle control. Thoroughly rubbed down and cleaned it before masking up and applying a generous coat of black hammerite paint. Decided on hammered finish as the control was badly pitted. More than happy with the finish, should have done it years ago.
