Baker 130 gallon water cart for restoration - stock code 6416

A Baker 130 gallon water bowser, suitable for traction engine or roller. It stood for many years in an orchard, where the tank sheet rotted out completely. Other than the sheet, the remains of which have long since been discarded, the metalwork is pretty much complete. The wheels, backaxle and other end plate are in the container - far too wet in Lincolnshire to get them out today. All parts and castings were shotblasted last year and sprayed in red oxide primer - it's a nice clean project from here on, main cost remaining is a thin sheet of steel.
