nah, smoothing out small bumps is the plan. Already tried bigger tyres run
softer, and they work a bit better: standard tyres are 185R14, it's now got
195s on the front, and will, provided I keep it, eventually get 195s on the
rear as well - can't fit bigger ones on the twin wheels as they'll touch in
the middle - 195 is the max.
bigger diameter looks a good prospect.
However, 's all changing on the school front (again!!) and as such I may not
need 8 passenger seats, so judging by the price that S/H LRs are fetching,
especially discos, I might go back to a disco at this rate, or maybe a
newer/tidier 110 CSW - I like the CSW, and in fact, prefer it to the disco,
really. If I did that, I'd not be bothered about making the minibus ride
better, of course.
it's a good 10 mph slower on the rough stuff than the disco/110 were. Disco
is the softest-riding of the lot, of course, but in a 110 I reckon if I did
rear-facing seats I could get 3 rows of 3 in. might do it front-facing, at
that; provided I could get access.
And no, I don't want a 101. Well, actually, I do - but to get one and get
it converted and sorted as a proper bus would cost too much.

my opinions are just that

from the strawbuilt shed, The cock's shrill clarion, or the echoing
horn, No more shall rouse them from their lowly bed."
