Now that I am free of one big Progressive Rail project, I am free to pursue other interests in the hobby. Tonight, I installed eye bolts (Details Associates) in the holes I drilled in the top of the long hood. Places to drill were previously denoted by “bumps” that represented the eyebolts molded on the shell. The older Japan-made Atlas/Kato GP7 had molded on grabs. This is an example of such, so I shaved them off and drilled holes for Details Associates wire grab irons.
Stay tuned for a future post when I remove the 3M blue painters tape and reveal what colors this unit will be.
