The "Oh my god why have I held onto this for 20 years" Clearout

Post by yakboy »

So owning a bus for 26 years you accumulate an awful lot of stuff, and I never seem to get around to selling surplus bits. Well as I have plenty of time with Lockdown so begins a massive clear-out. I will add to the thread daily and if there is any particular bits you are after but I haven't posted up yet just ask if I've got it. All prices include UK postage.

Tartan Material for interior panels of bus. These were the interior panels of my bus before it's current restoration. I was wanting to use them again but we put the matching seat cushions in storage and a mouse promptly ate them !! Really p****d off as this material cost hundred's of pounds. So took 18 months finding a material that was similar. So I would really like to see this have a second life. My bus is a walkthrough but I rescued one panel of a seat cushion and there is some of the original material spare so you should be able to cover the bulkhead,the material fits the front doors, cargo doors and long side panel plus walkthrough or full length bulkhead. The colour goes really well with sealing wax red or coral buses's . I enclose a photo of the material draped on one of my old door panel's. The material has been thoroughly washed, is not perfect but pretty good and will probably need a bit of a stretch as I washed it at 60 degree's. Only asking £30 as I would love to see it used again (I genuinely cried when that bloody mouse had it's way)

Both wipers are original, the long body has had a small repair with JB weld but almost invisible (can photo if needed) I can combine postage if more than one item is bought
