Work has continues down the offside with cleaning and oxiding the chassis as far as the cab.  The fuel tank has gone away to Hartlepool  Radiators for refurbishing and most of the cab fitting and sections of the floor have been removed in preparation for repair and for painting the cab.  Two new dynamo output cables have been installed and just await the terminals soldering so the dynamo can be reconnected.

The windscreen wiper motor has been removed and serviced and is ready for a new coat of paint.

The access door for the destination box proved impossible to remove without a lot of effort and in fact all it needed was a bit sanding off the frame to ensure it could be fastened closed.

Work this week has been concentrated on the chassis under the cab, painstakingly cleaning of hardened and congealed grease and filth.  The chassis as far as the shock absorber has been treated with Vactan and is ready read oxide, as is the lower part of the cab rear bulkhead.  Hopefully by the end of the week I should be able to spray silver onto the chassis.
