Restoring Albion HD23
Top left: Albion HD23 re-skin
This is the N/S cab panel for the HD23 cab. It has since been completed and painted in primer.

All the panels for this cab have been copied from those of the donor vehicle cab, which was in infinitely better condition than the tipper being restored.

All the framework comes from my donor truck. It has been sandblasted and powder coated. The new skin for this part of the cab had a layer of bitumen based sound proofing fitted; as per original. Sadly, not a lot has happened over the winter months with this restoration, as I don't have a workshop.

These panels have all been shot blasted r+aestoration.nd powder coated. This is 90% of the Albion's cab floor pan. Everyting is just bolted together in sections. The cabs were built by a company called A. C. Penman of Dumfries. Makes life somewhat easier for . . .
