San Diego PCC 508 Progress

SD508 Painting Progress

The 508 project is moving along nicely as shown above. Our contractor completed all of the needed metal work and applied seven of the nine colors of paint. Still to paint are the trucks and interior ceiling. Work is underway to work through all of the electrical wiring and to replace the truck springs. The windows have all been replaced with safety glass and freshly plated window latches. Once the ceiling lights are tested new ceiling panels will be installed and the ceiling painted. This will then allow the floor to be refinished, and the seat frames and seat cushions once they are re-upholstered to be installed. We still need to have the bumpers and front window shade installed, as well as the lettering painted. The door rubber molding and the concrete door step pads will be the last items to install. Once ready for operations, it will give the museum four operating PCC cars
