Portland Streetcar Finishing Tip 2 - End Section Corner Posts Modification

Hi All,

We ran across a fit-up issue for the operator's cab side wall glass and thought we would pass along a fix.  There is a blob on the inside of the corner posts that prevent installing the side wall glass.  One way to resolve the interference is to remove the blob with a small chisel.  Be extremely careful as the corner post is thin.  Tony used a fine Dremel burr and groung it out.  I am not practiced with a Dremel so I stuck with a small chisel and took my time.  See the pictures below.

This picture shows the blob.

In this picture the blob has been removed from the cornerpost.

Just another small step, get all the flash and fuzz off.
