Following on from last night's post on the finishing touches to carriages 123 and 106 here are a couple of snaps of the paint job on the matching pair, (for export to England).
You can see in this second shot how the bodysides bend in towards each other without the floor / chassis in place to keep them straight. This is perfectly normal. It's when they want to flex outwards that you've got problems!
These just need a bit of touching up here and there and then they can be put back together, the glazing inserted and sent off to their new home.
