  7. Well Pebbles as he's been named by my son, is now residing at Bugmad Customs awaiting a few winter jobs.

    New canvas to be fitted
    Poptop to be repainted
    Gearbox to be fitted after old one is sent off for reconditioning
    Stereo and speakers to be fitted
    Full set of US spec overider to be painted and fitted
    A little bodywork to be sorted

    As well as that I'm looking at getting Solar panels and a12v diesel heater fitted too

  9. Also aiming to get a12v diesel heater fitted

    Seen good feed back on these from several peeps

  10. That’s similar to mine except I have a MPPT controller. Have a look at http://thelatebay.com/index.php?threads/fitting-solar-from-scratch.71515/page-18#post-1497631

    I’ll be replacing the two 100w panels and probably the controller too but not with any Eco-Worthy products. You might be lucky, most are, but if there is a problem it’s impossible to contact Eco-Worthy.
     
  11. The top one isnt ecoworthy and comes with an mppt controller. Im assuming the ecoworthy ones are a bit hit and miss then???
     
  12. super straight
     
  13. I was just giving you a heads up on Eco Worthy. Most people are really happy with their products and they are certainly helpful when you are about to place an order but after purchase don’t expect any help. That’s my experience anyway.

    The top one claims to be using SunPower panels, they appear to be good quality, from their website “Conventional solar cells lose power over time because of corrosion and breakage. But the unique design of SunPower solar cells eliminates 85% of the reasons conventional cells fail.” I suggest you do some homework on the controllers to make sure whatever is supplied is truly MPPT. The price seems cheap to me for good quality products.

  15. That’s a super clean original looking Westy! Exactly what I should have bought rather than spending the last 4 years trying to make mine as good! Looking forward to seeing the updates on the stereo upgrades and the solar!
