40218QS (1071) N71 YNF - Repainted

40218QS (1071) N71 YNF - Repainted
My first ever repaint was this early Volvo B6/Wright Crusader. It was bought by GMBuses North and displayed at the 1996 Bus & Coach Show. Her spec was the same as the B10Bs that came before her but in slightly miniature form! I remember it took two weeks to do (!) and I spent many an hour removing the old fade out barbie 2 vinyls!!! I then went on to give her another repaint afew years later (by then much more experienced and equipped with B7 style swoop templates!!!) and she was scrapped a couple of years ago. Should really have been saved...
