DEVON MOONRAKER 1979 1.6 AKA (MONEY PENNY)

  1. Bumper mounting holes all but one rounded off, plus several previous repairs

    Otherwise chassis looks rot free

    The plasma cutter is very useful but I can't seem to do a straight line yet and I get a bit carried away haha

  2. Okay it's pretty difficult and perilous welding upside down, I really don't like it but I think my welding worries are over apart from one or two little bits.

    I better get busy with the filler and start at the front again clean up rust, treat and underseal

    I got the chassis at the back repaiered and the towbar fitted. I used a section of 3mm box steel and welding nuts on the inside before fitting. 3mm might be overkill but this holds the towbar and whatever is attached.

    the other side was not too bad just the bottom section so cut some 3mm steel and did the same with the nuts welded on inner part before fitting

    If anyone has a diagram for wiring up towbar id really appreciate it

  4. Been busy and thought I would insulate the back before interior

    Was pretty simple and not expensive

    Did the roof aswell got some ply and polystyrene from wicks (my first drive on the parkway which was entertaining, get's loads of attension)

    The wood is all ready and made a start on making each part IMAG5017.jpg IMAG5019.jpg IMAG5020.jpg IMAG5021.jpg IMAG5027.jpg IMAG5013.jpg

  5. Another day, been outside so long I think the fresh air has gone to my head or it's the sawdust

  6. Looking good :thumbsup:
     
  7. Very impressive, do you have plans or are you making it up as you go along?
    15mm Birch ply I assume?
    Hoping to do something similar myself, hence the plans question.

  8. There is plans missing for sink and cooker unti so had to wing that bit

    Done in 18mm ply

    The plans are not 100% accurate so dont trust the measurements to the letter

  9. More or less done, I did notice a mistake with the fold down shelf under the cooker, wont open with the drawers in so will sort that

    Wired up all works, and fitted led lighting

    Just got to do a few mechanical part replacements and get tracking done. Oh and MOT
