An intensive burst of activity on White Lady 1279 has resulted in significant progress with the rear end chassis problems. All the sections which were suffering from corrosion have been replaced by new parts and some of the related superstructure has also been renewed. Having done this most difficult part of the restoration we’ve now moved onto installing flooring and the section to the emergency door will soon be in place.
There’s still plenty to do in terms of mechanical and electrical work but this represents real progress. The next stage will see the external panels fitted at the rear of the bus and then window pans and windows can be installed.
