Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement

This is going to be some job.. I expect you'll need to get to the opposite side as well at some point?

Once you get the glass off the inside I suppose you're hoping to pull the chainplates out from inside? or are you going to have to cut them out?

I expect you'll find the external crazing is from corrosion swelling on the plates.
