One side in primer and at last it's starting to look better, though we're beginning to regret removing the grills and moss and exposing those horrible bus windows.

Undercoat finished on the non-platform side. Possibly a vegetation clearance day is imminent.

Top coat finished on the platform side, unfortunately not seen at its best in the late afternoon shade. The colour is an early BR bauxite - though not necessarily authentic for this vehicle it looks the part.

Paul Martin added 'go-faster' stripes to the join between sides and top. The smart roof of the repainted Ferry Van highlights the need to paint the GUV roof. Note also the SR mk17 nest box on the end of the GUV.
