This week work has continued on the offside frame with the removal of all the remaining windows. The window adjacent to the driver’s cab door will have to have a completely new frame manufactured as it is beyond repair.
The rearmost OS window frame has been repaired and is now in primer awaiting the refitting of the glass with new rubber.
The emergency door was removed to allow it’s condition to be assessed and ready for rebuilding as necessary. This entailed also removing the rain deflector above the windows along the nearside. Other work has been the reinstatement of the cover over the body mounting to the left of the entrance steps.
Work continues on the offside framing with the laborious process of drilling out broken screws and filling all the holes in the frame with beech wood dowels.
