  1. 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.

    Hi everyone, Having recently bought a Westfield Seight in September last year I have decided to get involved with the WSCC. I am looking forward to going to my first meet over in sunny Essex in March, Kev from Essex has kindly mentioned a few people who will be going there from near me in Maidstone area. I would be Interested in meeting up on the way with you guys if your up for that. I am also planning to go to the Silverstone Classic show with one of my mates and would be interested in getting my car on the club stand, Kev also mentioned Stoneleigh which I would also like to go to.

  4. Westfield owner - reborn

    Hi all, after a 10yr'ish absence I have no rejoined and taken a punt on an Seight after my previous 1600CVH. The one I have bought is running a little rough but managed the 198mile trip back to ours Saturday afternoon, in the rain, and dark and cruising just to make sure on reaching final destination. Will post updates as time goes on and funds become available etc etc
  5. SOLD - Wide Body ZK V8 Bonnet in Burgandy

    This was my spare bonnet and bought brand new from westfield in 2010. I used it for sprinting so i could have one bonnet for the road and car shows and another for the track which would carry the stickers and race numbers. This has been used for 10 events between 2010 and 2014 and other than being drilled for the locating pins and locks this has not been cut or modified in any way. The bonnet locks and pins are not included in this sale. The bonnet is in good condition and has always stored on the wall when not being used. All the stickers can easily be removed. £200 (no offers) Collection only from Colchester CO6 NOW SOLD Pictures to follow
  6. Hello everybody :)

    Well the time has come to let the moths free from their leathery confinement and purchase a V8. This will be my first Westfield and the reason for the V8? Well the uncanny resemblance to the soundtrack of the beginning of the universe of course (though that may be a dream involving some exceptional whiskey) I'm wondering what advice you fine gentlefolk could bestow on me to help me on my way? Aero screen or windscreen? RAC bar or chrome bar? What are the best waterproofs to get that don't make you appear to be a stunt man from JASON or other horror films? (The all in one from the WSCC does have a touch of 1980's horror though that may just be me) How best to enjoy your westys in winter? Anything else that people might recommend? Very new to this internet thing of forums etc but I'm very keen to be part of this community. (I'm 31 but always preferred girls and sticks laden with politicians promises) I hope everyone is well and soon hope to have a numb bum and massive smile on my chops. Tom
  7. So as you can tell from the title, yesterday did not end well... I've had my SEight for 6 months now and in that time have uprated the cooling system, sorted the brakes, fitted new wheels and have done a basic service - oil, filters etc. Not done anything on the engine apart from that. However while cruising home after a great day at Bedford Autodrome, the old V8 punched a hole in the side of the block, spitting lumps of metal on to the road. Presumably some sort of con rod failure - the RAC man suggested possible blocked or oil starved con rod bearing. - Is it worthwhile or even possible to repair the damaged block and rebuild the bottom end? - If not, is it worth sourcing a new block and rebuilding the engine using my existing parts? - Are the cylinder heads in my car completely standard, or uprated in the Westfield builds? How can I tell? - Could I find a fully build engine and fit the cylinder heads etc from my existing engine? - Where's the best place to find spares / whole engines? I do love the drama and performance of the V8 but more modern engines could 'add lightness' whilst providing a similar power output. As another option, how complicated would it be to replace it with a 2.0L Duratec for example, but keep the existing LT77 5-speed gearbox? Anyway, I don't have the work space or time for a long term perfect rebuild project, I would just like to get it back on the road as soon as possible, hence coming here for some advice! This is my first kit car so go easy on me, I have much to learn and any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Oscar
