Brake Car pt 4

Tonight I continued to drill the holes in the mounting plate.  This round for the air components and gauges.  The needle valve, the solenoid valve, the tank gauge, the line gauge, and voltage meter.

What is left is the mounting of three more bulkhead fittings in the tank, for the gauge, inlet and outlet.  I could combine some of these fittings onto a manifold.  I do not know if I will do that or not.  Wednesday I will decide.   Also I have chosen to get a smaller tank gauge, I have a bottom mount 1.5" diameter.  I would rather have a back mount 1" that I can place on the mounting plate next to the line gauge.
