and no blue filter to correct the cast. (yes, I'm old enough to
remember "wet" cameras and almost old enough to say that they were

x-acto knife and a metal straight edge. You can also see the beginnings
of "hinges" being applied here to glue the pieces of the former

Tape is applied over the

when the piece is laid flat.

||I have read and been told that the bolts used to hold
pulleys are potential trouble. It seems that if they are tightened too
hard, they tend to rotate, even if you have filed the round heads flat.
This is a real mess because there is essentially no access to these
bolts after construction is completed. I welded on some squares of
metal to the bolt heads so that the bolt head is flush with the metal
plate and firewall front. I then dug out some holes in the firewall
with a wod chisel to accept the assemblies. This reminded me of 5th
grade shop class.
||Bolt assemblies installed but no fiberglass on the

plans were purchased and about a year and a half after the other parts
of chapter 4. I should have just done this step rather than worrying
about it for so long.
