"Alright!" exclaimed Wayne Thorley today.

The wall panel finally fit after 30 minutes of wrangling and grinding. Wayne, lead welder on the railbus project, and Keith Berry first tried to trim a 3/16-inch strip off the 29- by 15-inch panel with the band saw.

Missing and dull teeth made the job precarious at best. The thought of a shattering blade forced them to plan B.

Wayne reverted to the best way he knew how -- to grind the metal strip off with a heavy 7-inch grinder.
