Electric Mirrors Upgrade - Part 3

A bit of fresh air was needed today, so I used some fine cutting compound, followed by Autoglym SRP and finally some wax. Three coats of each left me with this Then I cleaned the mirror glass and applied some Rainex. I also cleaned the plastic glass surround with some trim detailer And finally I re-assembled the mirror The windscreen pillars need a small amount of modifying. I drilled out the fixing holes to enlarge the diameter of them. This allows the mirror to be rotated slightly t

Electric Mirrors Upgrade - Part 2

I picked the job up again this afternoon, and decided to fit the switch into the dashboard. Firstly I chose my position Then I cut away the vinyl and foam very carefully, followed by drilling a series of holes to form the square hole After some tidying up with a file, the switch is in Whilst out collecting some last minute bits today, I picked up a can of top coat paint. I sanded one of the primed mirrors down with 800 grit wet and dry, and gave it a couple of coats. More to

Electric Mirrors Upgrade - Part 1

Several months ago I bought a pair of electric mirrors and a control switch on E-Bay They are from a MGF (Rover) So yesterday I decided to have a go at getting them sorted out and fitted. The first job was to whip the battery off the Westy. I bought the battery inside and sat at the dining room table and got stuck into working out the wiring on the mirrors and switch. This didnt take too long with the help of google. Once I got both mirrors 100% operational, I labelled up all the wires and

First entry

For the build thread, look here: http://forum.wscc.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic/89450-donor-done-build-started/ It's not had a lot of use in damp conditions this year, but now it's cold out I'm beginning to notice how twitchy it is. I'm not getting a lot of grip from reasonably new tyres so I'm suspecting it's the lack of alignment beginning to show. I'm trying to hold off getting it aligned until the spring, but as my big plans for winter upgrades slowly dissolve into a deposit for a house up

A life of Verona

Star Date 16/12/12 So this is my blog, more stuff and nonsense, more opinions to annoy people. Now what shall we blog about? Well if my car was getting it's usual blats we could talk about the car, but it isn't so we won't. We could talk about the progress of the new porch but as that's on hold until after Christmas we can't. We, well I, could talk about how very ill I've been (man flu, so nothing serious) but that's boring. OK, I can't think of anything to talk about. So you read it here

First time for everything........

Evening all, Time is short today so may I Introduce myself. I'm James Alexander (Alexander72) and less than a year ago I bought my first Westfield from Martin Parkes. Its a 1990 SE with a X-Flow engine and lots of bits and pieces. It starts, and goes, and stops - thats the limit of my knowledge. Oh, kids point at me in it and depending on their age they either say "look at that racing car" or "that man is too big for that car... what a.........." I'm planning on doing some competition ne
