  5. Good luck with the collection, I’m quite excited too!
  6. Just noticed it’s at Felbridge! That’s about 5 miles from me and about a mile from Bazza’s house!
    If only we’d known we could’ve gone had a look and kicked the tyres for you...

  7. I’m only about 45mins from Felbridge...though on a fact finding mission my skill set would have been limited to “yep, it’s definitely blue!”.

  9. Bloody hell I know this camper the geezer lives right next door to the star pub in Felbridge, he was using it as his daily up until the sale, I know he did a front wheel disk brake conversion he also put on a stainless steel exhaust, I hope you enjoy it well done

    I'm going to miss chatting to the fella he seemed a nice chap, I've followed this bus many times along the Copthorne road, I'm going to also miss seeing it
    Good luck

  13. Well 420 miles later o_O

    I'm home safe and sound, was an epic journey but was worth it.

    Needs tinkering with and odd bits of paint sorting but looks fantastic.

    Drove well for a 50 year old but god was she thirsty!!!

  14. The only bay in the village :chewie:
  15. Looks like a nice bus, and the previous owner has clearly taken care of it. I bought mine sight unseen on eBay and haven't regretted it since. Hope you have many years of happy motoring/camping together.

  18. Looks like a great bus.
    I remember from your 'moneypenny' bus that you have great skills, so i'm sure you can tackle any work that needs doing.

    Did I notice a Fram oil filter? If so a mann filter W719/5 fits and is a much cheaper alternative

    Are you off camping this weekend then or tinkering?
  19. I'll try again.
  20. "Blushes" I wouldn't say great but thanx

    Brilliant I will bare that in mind when I buy one.

    My parents are going to Scarborough to my aunties so might follow otherwise I will be in the local peak District
