Monon DS-50 Restoration Work Update

Update by Les Beckman
July 16, 2022



Here are some shots at Hoosier Valley of the fuel tank of Monon DS-50 over the past months:

Here Kevin Kennedy is starting to remove old paint and rust back in late February.





In early March, the fuel tank was set on its side for better access.





Here it shows Mark Belmonte doing some cleaning on 3/19/22.





The tank was eventually completely cleaned and then primed by Kevin. Here it shows
the tank on July 16, 2022, after Kevin had given it its final coat of black paint. It's now ready
to go back on the unit when the time comes!






The Monon projects continue ongoing at Hoosier Valley!


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