Proper Grab Rails And Some Extra’s To Boot!

A busy couple of days ultimately meant that I didn’t get the handrails fitted on Thursday night, despite my best intentions.

Today has seen them and the additional lower handrails added.

Although I haven’t taken a photo yet, Thursday did see the rain strips fitted to the roof.

Jim’s instructions have you using 0.7mm round brass rod. However I found a short length of 0.8mm square nickel rod in my stash which was just long enough to do the two rainstrips.

I ran them through my rolling bars to get the curves even while matching the dimensions quoted by Jim.
