Also where did u get the insulation for the roof? Kind regards. Nicky Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Belts cam...

Re: 1960 OG Paint Mango 11 Window...

Picked up a pair of Butty's wide 5 to 130 adaptors at Stanford Hall a couple of years back, refreshed them on the lathe, re-tapped the holes, had them silver zinc plaited & painted the outers black.

Re: 1960 OG Paint Mango 11 Window...

CSP brakes were sold & replaced with a set of Willwoods with dual pattern hubs so I could run wide 5 & 130 rims. IMG_3857.JPG IMG_3880.JPG IMG_3883.JPG Brake hoses needed relocating as they were fowling on the track rod ends. So I machined a plate to move them to the other side of the bracket as I d...

Top work Mark, pretty sure Lloyd ran his Dogback air beam directly from a compressor to avoid having to install a tank.

Re: 1960 OG Paint Mango 11 Window...

More tinkering in the engine bay & swapped my Pertronix Dizzy out for a CB performance version & a dry coil. So I now needed to make a mount similar to my previous std coil mount but dry coil mountings. Machined from Ali & anodised silver along with the Tach mount. IMG_4217.JPG IMG_4236.JPG fullsize...

Re: 1960 OG Paint Mango 11 Window...

Another issue was the Devon table leg mount, I really didn't want to be able to see this hanging down in the line of sight when it was having in the overhead. So I machined a recessed version & Richard dropped it into the table top. IMG_3892.JPG IMG_3895.JPG IMG_3889.JPG IMG_3890.JPG IMG_4138.JPG IM...

Re: 1960 OG Paint Mango 11 Window...

I needed re address my Tacho mount as the head lining was now in the restricting the original mount. So I machined a couple of proto types from billet Ali & then anodised the final version silver.

Re: 1960 OG Paint Mango 11 Window...

Result, it didn't come out too bad in the end, Couple of sticks of Millputty, dolphin glaze, etch primer, a can of Upol filler primer, a can of custom mix paint & 40+ hrs! It has cracked, but I did expect it to considering how bad it was to start with. IMG_3603.JPG fullsizeoutput_1a66.jpeg IMG_3608....
