We now have some decent photos of the newly painted underside courtesy of Woods Garage. 

Meanwhile South East Coachwork's have started to remove some of the outer panels to reveal the state of the steel rails that hold it all together.  They are naturally corroded but still retain their integrity.  Therefore they will be patched up as to replace them would entail extensive work including removing the interior display to gain access.  In three years time we will assess how well the business is performing and the wear and tear to the bus and the on board display.  At that time we will consider more extensive work.

The underside of the bus and engine bay has now been cleaned and painted silver, which makes it considerably shinier than the rest of the bodywork.  I wasn't able to get a shot of the underside so here is one of pristine looking engine.

With the work at Wood's now complete the bus has moved to South East Coachworks in Faversham where they will soon start removing the lower body panels to inspect the extent of the rot that lies beneath.
