Some of the detail parts from an IP Engineering solebar detail set were first painted in grey primer and then applied to the solebars and headstocks with cyano glue. Although not strictly prototypical, the extra rivet detail enhances the look of the solebars. The builders plates and curved washers supplied in the set were not used as these do not feature on the full size van. I also fabricated some brake V hangers from plastikard sheet and used 10BA bolts for the rod. The brake rod does not go right across the width of the wagon as this would obstruct access to the battery box under the floor. The batteries supply power to the tail lamp.
Finally the van was given a few wafts of olive drab spray paint to add some light weathering.
