I began by removing the trucks and couplers. I used Cal-Scale SC-301 under body mounting which included a brake wheel that I changed out also. I used Tichy wire grabs and cut levers by Detail Associates #6215. The stirrups are Detail Associates #SS 6417. I used a set of trucks that I had on hand...think they are off of an unused Athearn car.
The roof and under body got a coat of Floquil grimy black while the ends got just a dusting as I did not want to cover up the lettering. There are two mounting notches on each side that are not the same colour as the car body. These I touched up with a small brush and reefer yellow. I then lightly applied Bragdon powders.
