So here we are again....
Thought we'd start with some interior shots, as whilst no work has been on going here lately the addition of the windows has made the interior come alive and really look and feel like an RT. Above of course is the lower deck, whilst below is the upper, just to confuse you all!
The focus has been on panelling the bus up this month and the nearside upper deck is just about finished. There are one or two more vertical beadings to go on, then the beading that runs above the lower deck windows. Once these are done the offside will be taken to the same point.
Once the offside is also complete (to the lower deck windows) it will be the turn of the rear wheel arches to be fixed in. Completion of this will allow us to panel the area around the wheel arch which in turn means that the bus will be a solid structure with only the open platform allowing the cold winter air in, which of course will enable us to heat the bus so that interior finishing and painting can be started.
The fuel tank will also need to come off again and be cleaned again as despite the previous efforts some more residue has built up and no one has a wish to suck that into the fuel system the first time she starts up, so cleaned agin it will be and monitored again to make sure it remains clean.
A better angle to see the wheelarches from which have been sized but not fitted and will present some awkwardness in fitting, but in the scale of whats already been done, nothing to scary I guess.
Of course thats all a month away, so wish you all well for now, be you a follower, regular visitor or new to this blog, just to nice to know people are interested and out there!!
