The boiler wrap transitions to an upside down wagon top boiler design.
To support it, I am using a ring and wedges. i start by cutting the ring out of plywood

I then taper it on the belt sander and glue it and the wedges on

Then the front sheet is cut and bent and Fiberfrax is attached to the boiler

Supports are made for the firebox. The left side is notched for the lower sight glass tube

Finally the two rear sheets are cut drilled out and bent to shape. They are all soldered with Staybrite and imperfections are filled with JB Weld. The backhead is finished off also.
