  1. About to take the FW Special Edition plunge...

    Welcome....add to that the annual membership to WSCC because this place is invaluable....personal experience tells me that. My only bit of advice....look here first for a building pointers.....Westfield manual second....
  2. Carbon stone guard fitment?

    BTW I did mine with a thin bead of Silicon but used 5 black peel rivets in strategic positions too.
  3. Carbon stone guard fitment?

    Thanks Terry, i figure if i get both options sorted then the IVA man wont complain...
  7. 1.6 Ecoboost Build

    Right...so executive summary is i need to figure out what the hell's up with my steering lock and whilst its all in bits get an immobiliser fitted. Professionally :-) Would rather do belt and braces to keep Mr IVA happy. Thanks chaps!

    Thanks Dave, i'll go in the garage later and grab my shaft. I'll let you know if it goes stiff. Its not a racing column so it may be as you suggested.

    Its a westfield one.....maybe it doesnt work?....not at home at the mo so cant check...just cant remember ever noticing a steering lock. I'll look later, but i think i'll invest in an immobiliser anyway.

    Thanks chaps...no steering lock, so i need an immobiliser to pass IVA then i guess?.....
  11. 1.6 Ecoboost Build

    On another note...do i need an immobiliser?...just about to put the scuttle on for the last time and I havent got one yet....what does everyone else do?
  12. Unused bell housing, only slight issue is that the cut out for the release fork needs enlarging a bit. Keep falling over it in the garage so first £50 seems about right.
  13. 1.6 Ecoboost Build

    Right, wrapped all the edges with rubber, thought it best to be on the safe side...lots of conflicting stuff on the tinternet about if its needed or not, right fiddly little job though achieved with a fair amount of swearing, a screwdriver and a small amount of adhesive :-)
  14. 1.6 Ecoboost Build

    Right...quick question, do i need to put rubber edging on the rear reverse and fog lights?....hope not as its a real b****er!
