Nice choice on going Devon Style! Did you go with any fridge or cooler install?
Also, have you put in any kind of heater?

Thanks for the inspirational build and thread!!
Todd

No fridge or cooler, we just use a cool box when its needed. just recently fitted a Webasto petrol heater though.

Steve, keep rotating the dizzy until the light comes back on again. There's a pickup every 90 deg.

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.
