The restoration of AEC Reliance CDK172L

Project Dairy August 2005

 August  6th 2005          With some help this weekend I have started to refit and weld in place the new steelwork around front of the bus and the nearside entrance door pillar and step support rail as the following pictures show the progressive steps taken during this lengthy progress. 

Welding top of the door pillar

 Grinding off surplus weld heel

Front door pillar welded in position

A friend acted as fire marshal with extinguisher at the ready, as you can see sparks fly everywhere.

 Welding step support rail to door pillar

New front panel temporary clamped to new door pillar

Next stage is to remake wooden step support rail and 1st upright and two bottom rails to wheel arch.
