Thanks, Chuck and Pete. I 'girded up my loins' and made the last brass part yesterday. This is the stirrup that supports the bottom of the brake staff, with some chain I snitched from a Tichy pillar crane kit. The copper wire came from a lamp cord:



Today I 'girded up my eyes' and installed it. Here a loop of copper wire is around the bottom of the brake staff:



And here the epoxy that will hold the stirrup to the frame and floor is curing, with a little dab to retain the brake staff.



I'll paint it and touch up the frame next. Then I'll somehow clean the frame without getting the wood deck wet. Then decals and weathering.

James,
You can't be stopped! I don't know how you pull this stuff off with your loins all girded up, but you do.
Nice details!

Scott
