  2. This thread doesn't start with a trip to the Westfield factory, or a picture of a shiney floored empty garage, it starts with a long neglected unfinished machine, that looks like this As you can see it's as much a restoration as it is a build. It's a 1991 Pinto Seiw that has never been near a road. Bought by a friend as an unfinished project in 1993 and never progressed further than this. Aiming to Get it road legal eventually if at all possible, maybe, well we can always just do a few track days in it, let's see how far we get
  3. Protuding Rear Wheels!

    Hi, New to the forum and not particularly technical. First Westfield bought 2 months ago, 1999 SEiW running Sierra SDV and Ford CVH, 15 inch Pro Race Wheels (J7) with ET23 off set on 195/50/50 Toyo's So my issue is that my rear wheels stick out war too far and since adjusting the ride height to 160mm on the rear, they have started rubbing when the car is under load - or even just going over a slightly uneven road. To me they protrude far to much so I thought the rear wheel offset must be wrong. I reached out to Westfield who confirmed the off set should be ET23 on the fronts and ET 24 on the rear. The guy that fitted the wheels before I bought it put ET23 all round - so although it's not totally correct, in my mind the 1mm difference isn't the issue. I've got 2 pictures trying to show the issue, first showing the protrusion and the second showing (well attempting to) the size of the rear hub - which looks massive! Issue pics: https://goo.gl/photos/4gqwxvSxy6YHSiHL8 The car itself: https://goo.gl/photos/1huqJwHa5298nnsC8 I can jack the car up in the meantime, but I've just had a cage fitted as I wanted to do a few sprints and track days, and running it at over 175mm at the rear just seems very high - although not driven it in anger yet. Question is what could be causing this - is the off set info I have correct or is that the issue - it's just that the hubs do look very wide. Any advice appreciated, can have a play and get more pics tonight if needs be. Thanks in advance, Lee
  4. New member saying hi

    Hi, I joined the club at Stoneleigh. I am re-building a 1995 SEIW with my dad so I can hill climb when I'm 16. The car was owned by MGM film studios and needs a new chassis and rear suspension. We have a year to complete our challenge and will be posting a wanted list soon. The car has quite a few parts missing and may need help and advice. Looking forward to chatting to other members.
  5. I've decided to sell my Westfield which I have owned from the time I built it, registered in 2001. This is an ideal road car in immaculate condition. I am planning to retain the number plate. The engine was completely rebuilt using an older and mature block. This enables the car to run without Cats and MOTs without a problem. This car will be sold with a new MOT as it currently expires at end of May 2017. The engine was built and tuned by a V8 specialist (Progress Engineering in Maidstone). R380 gearbox (new when fitted) Heavy duty clutch LSD Diff (Westfield supplied) Moroso electric water pump Immobiliser Rev limiter Toyo R1R tyres 205/15 (almost new) New Protech shock absorbers fitted Wrapped stainless steel headers and stainless steel underslung exhaust (Westfield supplied) Tonneau cover with zip for half cover if wanted Removable side screens Full weather gear - Hood and frame Spare wheel and carrier included but not currently fitted. Various spare parts, Manual and many receipts and info folder If not sold this car will be at Stoneleigh on Monday 1st May Car is based in Letchworth, Herts. Contact Ron 07885 524495 Price: £14750 ono
  6. After 3 years of fun, I am looking at moving into Tin Top racing so my Westfield is going up for sale. It's a fantastic car, and is the perfect road / occasional track day car in its current spec and could be taken either way to make an out and out track car, or an even better road car. So the car: Westfield SEiW registered on 1998 on an R plate, wide body with V8 ducted nose cone and vented bonnet. 2.0 Vauxhall XE Red Top with oil pump, hydraulic tappets, plugs and a Varley red top 30 battery fitted within the last few years. Fully serviced with oils and fluids over the winter, also garaged over winter. It runs on MBE Engine Management with tapered throttle bodies giving 197bhp on a rolling road. Gearbox is a Type 9 close ratio straight cut competition box with short quick shift. Paddle type clutch Sierra Limited Slip Differential Front brakes are Wilwood 4 pots with solid discs, rears are Sierra disks. Braided brake hoses Gaz adjustable suspension 2.4 Steering Rack 13 inch Compomotive alloys Carbon fibre effect rear arch protectors and rear lights Carbon fibre exhaust Playskool Half Cage Willians Harnesses Momo steering wheel Recently fitted with an upgraded Coolex radiator with new fan Cooling override switch (never had any overheating problems but the switch was already fitted and I upgraded the radiator for more track work) AP Racing Brake Master Cylinder (took me almost a year to get hold of one of these to fit! Rocking horse s*** springs to mind!) Heater Full leather dash and carpets Immobiliser Hamilton car cover (with slight tear) Side doors and soft bits for sevens tonneau cover The car has been fully set up with geo and corner weights by Northampton Motorsports MOT until September 17 As you can see, it is a great spec car. I have spent thousands on this car and it is in fantastic condition, I have stacks of history and receipts too. I have loved owning it and hope the next person does too. I just want to try my hand a bit more seriously on track! I am in no rush to sell so please no silly offers. Car is based in Leamington Spa. Contact 07429155373. Price: £11,500

  13. Brake Hoses For Wide Track

    I have recently ordered a wide track front suspension kit, and realise that I will need the longer brake hoses which I think can be achieved by using rear hoses. However it appears that Westfield are out of stock and aren't expecting any in for at least 3 weeks. I therefore wondered if anyone can recommend an alternative source, and what end fittings will be required please?

  21. Hi all, New to the forum and have been soaking up as much information as I can while I look to purchase my first Westfield. I have found what I think would be a good starter at Hallmark Cars, does anybody happen to know this car or have any information about it? Has anybody bought from here before? http://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/westfield/all-models/westfield-sei-wide-body/1407008 (Apologies if direct links are not allowed) Its a 1.7 crossflow with Weber 45s, 4 into 1 exhaust, spax adjustables, what looks like an RAC roll bar and a few more bits. I am going to the view the car tomorrow so does anybody have any pointers on what to specifically look for? Would this be a good first car to learn all things Westfield with? Thanks for the help. Regards, Adam
  22. SEiW Wanted £6k Max

    Hello all, New member here and Im looking for my first Westfield. My budget is £6k max and I am ideally looking for the following: - SEiW car - Zetec Engine - Full Screen and Wet Weather Gear - Disk brakes all round - Adjustable shocks and independent suspension - 5 Speed Gearbox (with Quickshift / short throw?) Other things that would be nice to have are an RAC Roll bar, Removable steering wheel, decent buckets with harness. Would also consider a well sorted Crossflow or 2.0L Vauxhall. I am based in Leamington Spa and am willing to travel for the right car, anywhere within say 3, maybe 4 hours. I appreciate this may be a tall order at this budget but if you have something that seems to fit or know of a well set up road/track car within budget, please get in touch! Many thanks, Adam
