The #500100 had a tough & rough life up to the point we received it. We had to restore most of the chassis on our Celette Fixture Bench, and hand make many of the rusty sections that are no longer available.
After stripping back the paint & filler we expose previous rust & damage - poorly repaired !
More past secrets revealed.
