What a difference a day makes

The Thornycroft restoration project definitely involves a huge amount of determination and patience.

Over time so many different components are repaired, restored or replaced. New parts are built, forged or ordered – most often from overseas.

But yesterday was different.

Thanks to a day of media blasting from PJ’s Custom and Dulux Refinish, yesterday the old girl’s chassis got a new lease of life.

The timeline of the restoration is leading towards having her on display at the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show.
