Here is a side picture of the stage setup. I know it seems slightly mad but it works really well and the acts enter stage via the side emergency exit door which is up off the ground.

My drivers seat was looking very tatty so just had recovered in 'Farrari Red' leather with white piping. Very pleased with the job!

Very Shagadelic!
My wife is from East Sussex.
We think it's very cool to see a yankee bus in the UK and all the cool things you do with it.
I really like the interior. Especially the bed area.
Seems to be a lot of very interesting folks into school buses.
:)
You need a nice Union Jack painted down the entire roof.

I'll bet the MOT and insurance is tricky and expensive?
