24112 from Stockton looks to have been treated too. The cooling vents look as though they are black now. Possibly indicating a New engine?

Can confirm 24112 has not yet been treated to the Cummins re-engine program. It’s on 14s today.

Which cooling vents? It hasn't got the black panel where the extra grill is on 24105/11, but neither does 24107 which was re-engined.

Just to avoid any confusion over the MANs that have received the Cummins modifications, this side-on shot of 24111 shows where the additional vents have been placed - all but 24107 now have this area painted in the same black used between the windows

Pity they've left that red "triangle" next to the black section - could have just painted it all black!

None of the conversions have had a full repaint - the only one that has that whole area painted black is 24115.

It is usually the responsibility of Exterion (the company that sells the advert space) to make sure that the bus is restored to good condition following removal of an advert like this. More often than not they get repainted.
