Coppering the radiator brace

Spent a few hours at the shop today. The radiator support braces needed the copper installed. Since there was a curved cutout for the spark plugs, the first piece of copper covered the curve.

Then the sides were installed. I did this with one piece of copper.

Here is the finished end.

Then the radiator end was finished. This was much easier than the last end!

Here is the finished brace,

I was able to complete both braces and add copper to the ash seat support piece too. All three pieces are now quietly drying after a good coat of varnish.

More soon. Enjoy
