Joe I don' have any interior shots yet but these show a bit of it. Paul you must have a collection of photos of everybody's bus :D

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, PLEASE GET RID OF IT, FAAAAAAST. I thought you played the ukulele 8O Get a Barndoor steering wheel on there NOW.

That's my only criticism :roll: Pat PPP in Thailand sells them and they are spot on and good price. The banjo just doesn't do it i'm afraid and I'm sure its on your list 8) 8) 8)

Thought it was! Nice bus!! - it was this bus that made us go to Bromsgrove for our interior retrim - we have the green version of the brown check fabric we saw in this bus!

Pete & Angie are great people to deal with in the scene.
