The central cabin has thus recovered part of its seats. Now they lack a beautiful case, because this cabin is still under construction. Before the windows were changed in 2016, the fuselage was not watertight and the carpet lining the blankets and the floor suffered greatly, as well as the wood frames.
Next objective: carpet!
We have debated for a long time about the color of the carpet, or rather, the color of the 2 carpets. Dark brown on the sides and light brown on the ground. Fortunately, we were able to find some hidden bits that served as a witness of a past time.
Before you can install this carpet, which is sometimes glued to plywood, sometimes stapled to posts, you must prepare, repair or completely redo the supports. There is a lot to do and our work is hampered by the obligation to evacuate our workshop before the end of June. We still do not have a sustainable solution and this is a big problem and a very important stress for us.
We hope to have finished the carpet so we can participate in the 2021 EHD in September ... but it’s not won!
