Bert & Bill, 

Go out and rent a pavement roller and drive over that 15 degree 
conical primary.  For what you are trying to achieve now, a perfectly 
flat spiral can be adjusted to give just as much K as your coil will 
stand while also giving you a bit extra clearance that you will now 
need for maximum voltage holdoff.

On the new proposed 'bigger' big topload, Here here! : )
Good luck, BTW I really enjoyed the Warthog pictures!
