Hello My Friends
Very nice! The sheet metal on a streamliner can be a real puzzle, but is one of the things that makes 611 so cool.

Hello colleagues,
thanks for your words. It is a puzzle, with what felt like 1 million parts. But as Jack said, thats what makes the cool look.

kind regards
Chris

I would be afraid to take something like that out and run it...then spend 3 weeks cleaning :shock:
Too many things going on to bother listing them.

Hey Bull,

thats not a Problem, 3 hours of cleaning after a run day is a normal procedure. We do it with industrial cleaner in a spray bottle and brush. Taking out the grates , and cleaning the ashpan with vacuumcleaner. The only problem of cleaning the J will be the smokechamber,but we will find a solution for this problem.


All the best
