Hi Steve
Is that fact or rumour about the RM roofs all gone from PVS?
It would surprise me if that was the case. Why not give them a ring or contact Andy Haywood he would know.

Re: RM roof

Sorry my mistake its actually RM 120 not 110 and it was converted to open top some years ago.It was languishing derelict at Westbourne Park garage for some time,but the new owners are keen to fully restore it and would like to fit a roof back on.It is fairly original otherwise with an AEC engine.I gather that Lowthian buses took all of the remaining roofs from PVS to re-roof their own fleet.. Roy do you have contact details of the German one?
Alternatively a front and rear dome and window pans would be a good start, how many have you Simon?

Re: RM roof

Lothian did take all the roofs, plus the ones I had, I also sold them 85 window pans, I still have some pans left, I will check maybe enough for an RM, not certain about the front ones.
Cheers

My bus number (if any): RM14

Re: RM roof

Thanks for that Simon/ Rob.I believe John from Gardeners who has RM120 has already been in touch with you so I'll mention the window pans. A front and rear dome would also be helpful if there are any around. Many thanks
