Leicester 100 ready for next stage of restoration

Leicester Dominator 100, now externally repanelled and refitted with exterior mouldings, is now ready for the next phase of its restoration to original condition. The first phase has already revealed that sealing the panel joints prevents water ingress - when 100 arrived with us, it suffered from chronic water ingress because of no seals between panel joints. This was apparently typical of East Lancs output of this era.

The next stage is to restore the original interior lighting and replace the window rubbers. 100 will then start approaching repaint stage.
