The on-going restoration of the 1956 Leyland Tiger Cub is going well with new Zintec interior stress panels in place both sides and rear, work during the end of 2016 concentrated on making and fitting the floor support structure which was then painted in grey undercoat. With this completed attention turned to the front entrance step structure.
Rebuilding of the front, especially on the near side, has revealed several repairs. Damage was particularly noticeable when the doors were offered up to the bus as they wouldn’t fit. The entrance door pillars have therefore been repaired and the door frame made square to ensure free movement of the doors. The door frame mechanism has been cleaned and repaired so it moves freshly.
