No I didn't get a printout. I should have asked really. He has an earlybay himself and has a very similar spec engine also making 90bhp at the wheels.

Found a danbury interior for sale on thelatebay this morning. Collected it this afternoon. Needs some tlc but for £50 it was a bargain.

I’m really pleased my old Danbury units are going to get a new lease of life. Make sure you post up some photos of it when it’s all fitted.

Hi Andy
Tbh I'm not sure I am going to use it now! I spent the weekend dropping the kids and their mates all over the place and I have realized I quite like the microbus interior after all. I might be tempted to sell it on for what I paid you for it but am quite happy for it to sit in the garage and keep my options open.
