    At least it was only EDL before that! ;)
  8. Because all of you buggers are from Sheffield/Rotherham, does that mean I need to go to work in Gusbus or Major when our office relocates to Catcliffe?

  9. Catcliffe? Thought it had been renamed Waverley? It was the site of the Battle of Orgreave back in the miners strike. ..who says that the area has no history !

  12. Absolutely no offence taken about the washing of the bus, that will stop immediately, a super soft sponge and leather has been bought to keep him in tip top condition.

  13. Use 2 buckets

    One bucket with your preferred 'car shampoo' in it

    One bucket with just water

    Clean a bit of the van, then rinse sponge in bucket with just water, before putting it back in bucket with the shampoo.

    It stops all the dirt on the sponge f in up the paint.

    When you pour away the bucket of 'just water' you will be amazed at the amount of gritty nastiness that comes out!

    I used to wash mine any old how, then a proper valeter type told me to use 2 buckets.

  14. Hello from Sale, nice van you've got there.
  15. Took the bus to a mate of mines garage today to check the emissions as it seems to be using more fueld than normal. The results were C0 0.23 ( almost fresh air, this is too lean a mixture though ) the HC 1443 way too high, this will be a result of the lean mixture so im going have a good check on everything i.e timing, point settings etc and see if I can improve the fuel consumption to some degree.
