Honest boss, ya gotta get that up button fixed!
They told him not to wear that tie near a fan blade!
Been to the top !!! Most of the parts were manufactured by Struthers Wells Co in Warren PA
I believe it is the end of the steam ram, the device that is propelling the planes to catapult them of the deck. Hot steam, so hence the rust.

Too much... hot rod and hot rod wrecker! Gary

Read the story of them building it. When they were to put in the last piece the two sides were off, maybe 4 inches. They waited for the sun to shine on one side and hosed down the other with a fire hose to cool it off and proceeded to bolt it together when it aligned.
I heard a similar thing, it was off a few inches and I read or heard they had cabled/come-a-longed it. In any case it was built from both sides and to be that close when built is incredible.

I am guessing maybe they were going to apply undercoating to that '55 Lincoln Capri hardtop. That's the only thing I can think of.
P40 on a station in Everett WA. Sure wish I could have seen this in person, just a bit to early for me. Not to awful far South of this location an AT6 Texan was perched on a building on old Highway 99. That one I did see, stopped and watched it plucked from the roof.
