So, onto the cladding. I don't think I am going to enjoy this. Sad

Started on the cylinder cladding and after a lot of fettling I have pretty much given up on fitting the brass finishing strips. In my view, it looks ok without but may ask STW for a new set at a later date.

Onto the boiler cladding and test fitted the first 4 sections but do not intend to paint until I have more of the components attaching through the cladding, then I can file to fit if required.

For the rear cladding section with the manhole cover, it looks to require a fair amount of trimming as approx. 5mm too long.

Was I meant to file down the protruding stay ends on top of the boiler as they impede the cork sitting flat and the fitment of the manhole cover?
