Work continues on our principal projects. Burlingham bodied PD2 1467 now has all windows fitted and work will shortly resume to ‘plumb in’ the engine and gearbox. All six wheel dishes have been shot blasted, primed and painted ready for the fitting of new tyres.

Work on Royal Tiger 377 is concentrated on the interior with many panels now covered in rexine and the first ceiling panels fitted. The second luggage rack will soon receive wiring for lights and bell and it can then be installed. PD2 1349 has been the focus of our attention in recent weeks with both interior and exterior bodywork taking place. A fuller report on 1349 will be available shortly.
