Well I've seen you guys finished buses so I thought it'd be worth it in the end.

Top work as always Will, very impressed.

Door braces removed and Keith supplied a new door which is 99% perfect as it's only missing the top hinge.

Now onto the other side.
FYI, this looks like the (very hard to find - wish I'd found it) 62/63 only changeover door. So that's ice pick handle but recessed. The handle mounting points and striker catch cutout is different too for the year only "recessed ice pick handle". Not the greatest of problems you face, but you might want to check this with your handles and n/s door for consistency. I had a nos ice pick door but didn't use it 'cos it would have been sacrilege to cut up nos to make it recessed ice pick. :roll:

^ Mind you, looking at your original pictures it looks like these were the doors you had.

When the roof is rotten there is no alternative but to cut it off and replace it
Been there ..Done that!

I’ll post a pic tomorrow of the brand new roof, going to see Mabbo and rich while collecting it as they know this new roof product and are one of the few companies that have fitted it (rather then a second hand roof which we have done before a few times)!

Photos soon
