Tender build 9 | 223 project


Probably the most complex part of the tender that needs refabrication is the water portal. Maynard has drafted a plan to form a new portal using a specially constructed jig. Below are some photos of the old portal, jig plans and new steel piece waiting to be bent into shape.
