3 Pieces Part #BLM-94 N Scale Supply Price:

'V' style Rear Fan Grab Irons are found on EMD SD50-75's & EMD GP50-60's.

To Mount:

Remove molded on rear fan grab iron with a sharp hobby knife.

Using the markings from the removed grab and placing the BLMA part on the shell, you will find where you need to drill your two #80 holes.

Once your holes are drilled, sand down the surface to totally remove the old molded on grab iron if need be (though sometimes you can get things flush with just your blade). (We suggest using toothless pliers to grasp the grab iron while installing.)

Put the grab iron in place prior to gluing which will give you a good indication of how things are lining up before it is permenantly in place.

After the grab is, remove the grab iron with your toothless pliers, dab the ends in super glue (you don’t need a lot) and reinsert, leaving the grab iron away (not flush) with the shell.

Adjust quickly as the super sets fast! We also suggest adding extra dabs of glue to the inside of the shell where the wire ends of the grab poke through.

To Paint:

You can paint the wire with any type of oil or water based paints available. We suggest using an air brush, tooth pick or Micro-Brush for this process.
