Tom Rainford (left) and John Melnik try to read the Pyle-National manufacturers plate on the replacement headlight casing for the DS-50.




Les Beckman cleans the headlight ring on the replacement headlight (Mike Cierski photo).




Mark Belmonte watches Kevin Kennedy as he starts the cleanup of one of the DS-50 air tanks.




Ben Harleman continues the needle scaling of the old black paint off of the SW-1.




The front pilot plate of the DS-50 is needle scaled by David Miller.




Much more still to do, but we're getting there!
