I have stripped out the panelling inside and found some damage to the framework caused by wet rot and some struts in the rear corners that were broken when the farmer at my previous storage place decided to move it without asking me first, by lifting the back end up with a fork lift fitted to his tractor. What a **** (I leave you to fill in the spaces) needless to say I moved the bus soon afterwards.
So I’ve cleared away the worst of the wet rot and treated the remaining bits with wet rot hardener and made up some inserts to replace the bad stuff. It seems pretty solid and should be even stronger when the panels are replaced. I’m now looking forward to a couple of weeks of pure woodwork to finish the inside and then hopefully I can get the trim back in. That lots of polished mahogany capping and window surrounds which is going to be a bit of a jigsaw puzzle, still at least it’s inside in the warm.
So watch this space…… who knows next time I might even remember to take a camera!
