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.

Completely stoked with the result of what Sam & Richard achieved, beyond expectations.

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!!
