CSP brakes were sold & replaced with a set of Willwoods with dual pattern hubs so I could run wide 5 & 130 rims.

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 didn't want to remove the original mounts.

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.

Great reading. Great bus! Have a couple of questions. I have fabricated a frame very similar to yours for rear inertia seat belt set up. Was wondering wear u purchased your belts from? Also where did u get the insulation for the roof? Kind regards. Nicky

Belts came from https://www.quickfitsbs.com/classic_cars_seatbelts.php made to length 2.5meters. Insulation came from deadening.co.u, 6mm the silent coat https://www.deadening.co.uk/products/si ... arge-sheet.
