Over in the Gloucester the last two sets of sliding lights have been fettled and refitted. A giant jigsaw puzzle was then solved, with the trial fitting of the luggage rack frame backing on the drivers side of the centre and rear saloons.

The final support for the terminal board was welded in, and the terminal board has now been fitted, with most existing wiring already having been terminated onto it. Conduit pipes were attached onto the plates leading to the front jumpers as well. Once the charging cables have been fitted, it will be possible to power up the vehicle from a shore supply similar to the Cravens at Llangollen.
