Back with the dome

RTW335's rear dome has arrived back after a few weeks of TLC having the dents knocked out of it and now looks as good as new. It has been prepared by a company that was formed by a small group of staff that were formerly employed in the TVR Cars panel shop at Bispham in Blackpool. The specialist shaped timberwork around the dome and emergency exit is being rebuilt (more rot having been found), but the roof panelling is now ready for refitting.

Also returned recently has been the window parts sent away for re-chroming - again all looking as good as new. All we need now are some window pans - these are being fabricated under the car of Routemaster owner Rob Duker.
