East Kent College Work Experience: Easter Break Pt.2
The weather was so nice today, I was tempted to wash the Mondeo which has been covered in bird poo but I still got some more important stuff to do. In the two tech/theory classrooms we have done some moving around to optimize the space more along with improving the overall presentation. Above used to be where the whiteboard and projector was setup but now we have setup a display wall here along with making this end the place for displaying all the vehicle components.
Before everything was just bundled onto shelves or left in bits, but now everything is categorized to be understood better and generally easier to look at. Above is two turbochargers and a supercharger for this display on forced induction. I’m rather OCD about this kind of thing as you can probably tell, and I have put every part facing a certain way so it looks pleasing on the eye. I guess someone will mess it up eventually but it looks good for now…
The other side is also a lot neater, each shelf now has all the similar components situated together. The obvious things you can see are the cut tyres, exhaust parts, clutches, intake plenums, batteries etc…
The transmissions are damn heavy, so they are staying on the floor !
Down the other end of the class is a small table which had way too many bits on it, but now it’s much more tidy and finally the rotary engine is back together. The smaller rotary model is an NSU variant, and stamped on it says ‘made in West Germany’ so pretty old like many of these old display models. Out of shot we also put another display board up in this corner, oh and that stop button does not work if you was wondering 😀
In the other class which is mainly a computer room is this cabinet display, well it was probably a cabinet fifty years ago but all the door runners seem to be missing now. Before this was a complete state, one shelf would be empty then the next full of random components all completely different. I think it looks much better now and everything is much clearer to see and use.
