Although the rally season is well underway we’re still pressing ahead with restorations. The re-panelling of Olympian 16634 (Ribble 2234) is complete and once the windows are fitted it will be ready for painting. Work has resumed on lowbridge 1349 with the rear dome the focus of attention. The dome has been removed to allow rotten metal and wood sections underneath to be removed and replaced.

Very soon work will get underway to re-panel highbridge PD2 1467. This project has been in abeyance for some time but new sponsorship allows work to resume. After a long period we now have a new radiator header tank and core for Cheetah 1568. Once fitted the coach can be serviced and checked prior to test running – it’s been off the road for some time. Hopefully it will be ready for Lytham Hall.
