One of the main beams is being prepared for some graving pieces to replace wood that has deteriorated. All the soft timber is chiselled out and a new hardwood piece shaped and then glued into the space. The strength of the beam in most cases has not been compromised yet. The repairs prevents any further deterioration and greater repairs in the future.

Over many months preparation of the bulkheads has culminated in a coat of undercoat being applied. This has been an arduous task for the volunteers and some Ford staff attending the Alma Doepel. The bulkheads will have final coats of paint after the fitout to avoid unnecessary damage during the fitout.
