    I made an ally cap and Self tappered, CT1'd it stuffed the insulation back in, I was going to line it with modern 1" insulated plastic covered board but with the amount of time it stayed on with the battery it is up there with a weico off the shelf fridge Im glad i kept the capacity, I could always do it in the future if I want.

    it would need to be a bigger box unless you bend the plate and it would still be tight, the one I used is 65 litres give or take, the fridge stuff is good to 80 litres

  14. I’ve got some proper retro wooden folding deck chairs - they look great but they take up loads of room so I hardly ever use them.

    I’m prob going to make something with a nice compact folding frame but put some og westy fabric on it.

    After being cut deep by being told that it looked like I had run over a wheelbarrow I spent a couple of hours I will never get back giving it the original 1200 look
