One of the first things my long-suffering other half said to me when I bought the bus was “I’m not getting in that thing until you’ve cleaned it!”. To be fair to her, there’s absolutely no way I would have spent a night in the bus in the state that it was in – it was absolutely filthy! I strongly believe that had his former owner spent some time cleaning Clarence (as he is now known) he could have added a reasonable chunk more onto the price he was looking for. The photos below will give you a good idea as to just how dirty he was!
Anyway, over the last few months, I’ve taken most of the interior apart and cleaned, polished and varnished everything in sight. I’ve still got a few bits and pieces to do, but the boss gave Clarence clearance last weekend ahead of our first trip away in him down to Salisbury (nice short trip, I know).
