11th February Wow! What a day.
Steve's been to Barnsley today looking for parts at the scrap yards
there. Note to every restorer
- go there as it's an Aladdin's Cave,
but be prepared to get dirty.
I've managed to get
some really useful bits and bobs,
1 x Rear Name glass
complete with frame.
1 x Perfect Plaxton
rear "Coffin" lens.
8 x Interior light
All this came from a
very sorry looking old Panorama which had been converted into a camper "Van"!
On the way home
after all that I popped in to see my old work colleagues at
Rossendale Transport and was very generously given a brand new set
of entrance door rubbers. I really must say a huge thank you
to Brian Riley and and Andy Hill, this was a particular part which
would perhaps taken ages to find.
Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th Feb
Had a very busy and productive w/end. I've now sanded down 6
of the 10 roof panels, chopped off the rotten and accident
framework ready for newly fabricated metal to be welded in
and begun the removal and replacement of the rotten front
bulkhead panel and entrance door pillar.
