Re: Our American School Bus in Sheffield, England.

Thanks Tango. It's worked out really well. Just working on new rubber flooring in the front drivers cab area at the moment.

Re: Our American School Bus in Sheffield, England.

Looking forward to seeing what your flooring looks like. I am thinking about using something like the Pirelli raised dot squares in mine. Had it in a kitchen a few years back and loved it. Tough as nails & great looking. Not cheap, but then I only need a few square feet. One of the rare advantages of a "shorty".

Re: Our American School Bus in Sheffield, England.

Sweet...love the industrial look (and functionality). Is is in squares or rolls?

It comes in a roll 1.2 metres wide. Easy to cut and just use contact adhesive.

With only a few days notice we have just done a job with our bus taking it to the centre of Paris for United Nations / UNESCO. See pictures below.

Re: Our American School Bus in Sheffield, England.

It's kind of funny. Here in the US most of us are trying to get rid of all traces of school in our buses, and you in the UK, get paid for an archetypyal American school bus.

Your bus looks great!
