Recent progress has concentrated on the crown stays which are now all installed. This picture, taken from inside the barrel, shows the new stays between outer wrapper and firebox crown. This picture was taken before reinstallation of sling stays that had to be removed to ease installation of the crown stays (see picture 50). The Sling stays have now been re-fitted.
