Hi Becky,

first of all thanks for the great article and photos, which are a crucial help for solving one of my last riddles about a strange equipment on the interior walls of the SRB Exhaust Chambers of the MLP.

When looking at the circled detail of this photo, I immediately recalled, because it's strangely wrapped on many photos, as one can see here.

in direct contact with the above circled interface, and both parts are like chalk and cheese.

If I did not have you, Becky!

But nevertheless the question remains, what these equipments were used for?

Maybe dhanners can help?
