"Crosville" Lodekka SRU981 ready for paint

A workshop shunt allowed SRU981 to glisten in the Spring sunshine w/c 14 May. Since this photograph was taken the lower panel locker doors have been refitted and all glazing.
Former Hants & Dorset, but now Crosville Motor Services early Bristol Lodekka SRU981 has now had all its bodywork completed and is ready for a full repaint in traditional Tilling green & cream. The extent of the work to restore this vehicle has certainly exceeded original expectations with almost every piece of timber on the aluminium framework inserts being replaced and a complete external repanel. Recently, the window pans have been glossed allowing the glazing and new rubbers to be refitted and SRU now awaits a slot in the paint shop.
