Was the picture of the LH frame taken from outside, on the right side of the FAL (tour side), or on the left side of the FAL?... If on the right, it should be MSN146(30A), if on the left it should be MSN149(FALstage1).
Photo was taken on the right hand side as you describe it so yes Poste 30A
I'm now a bit confused as to what was in Body join on Sunday morning (1st Sept)as I saw the following log on Civil Spotters today (credit Leslie Smith) I had assumed that I saw msn 150.

From my experience the photo from A80_TLS_A350 today looks like it is coming out of "body join" as you can see the concrete wall separating the 3 posts you can see on the tour from the body join hanger. As they point out on the tour the wall is there for insurance/fire purposes.
Change of station msn149 6/9/2013 by A380_TLS_A350
There is no mention of msn 150 in the log and 152 is there waiting to go in.
