I've had a 3 week break from working on the bus, but now I am back,
refreshed and raring to go!
This weekend I've concentrated on refitting new metal work on to the
front of 172. As well as completing the entry step support rail,
wooden packer and framework between the wheel arch and entrance.

September 17/18th New bottom rails
and a continuation of the nearside waist rail have been fitted today
after replacing a small section of the rotten stress panel (forward
of the rear wheel arch). I have also chopped out a larger rotten
section of the stress panel right at the back of nearside.

I've had an easy day
today! Just been doing little bits of jobs like fitting locks and
foam edging on the nearside locker doors. I have also removed what's
was left of the last nearside pillar! Very rotten indeed.
September 30/31 Today I have spent 7 hours making the rear nearside pillar and
rails. So now the nearside of 172 is nearly finished ready
