    Stuff to watch over the winter.

    Yes, see that on 'World of Sport's in the Dickie Davis days,. Boats turned corners as quick as a Westfield which is amazing for a water Bourne vessel.

    S2000 Throttle

    You could reduce the length of the section on the cable side of the pivot on your throttle pedal, to increase the amount of pedal travel needed for the same amount throttle opening.

    Morris' XI Build

    Thank you jonjh, the brackets are now in the 'to be refurbished box'! I thought there may be lifting brackets something like that but I hadn't come across them up until now. Two brackets are now on their way to me so I'm sorted.

    Hrm! Opinions about doing this seem to range from the above to 'its just like doing mild'! I'll do a test and see what happens. Cheers for the heads up guys!

    Cam cover polishing

    You need a large tub of elbow grease and a big cup of i'm-not-going-to-stop once you start No, seriously don't start unless you think you can finish it, or you will be stuck

    I tried stainless MIG on an exhaust manifold once....it wasn’t pretty.

    S2000 Throttle

    You can see on my photo that the TPS is painted to keep voltage set at idle. https://honda-tech.com/forums/honda-crx-ef-civic-1988-1991-3/official-honda-tps-wiring-calibration-thread-2830131/ This should help with resetting it, as adjusting the butterfly will put the voltage out and affect running.

    Mmmmm,good luck with the stainless wire in a MIG! Could never get it anywhere near good enough in mine,totally different to welding mild

    Wheel spacers ?

    Its doable and the issue with spacers on normal cars is the weight stressing bearings and studs. The issue isnt really one with our cars as weight is a lot less than the design from the cars it was specced from, such as the Cortina or Sierra , depending on type build.

    Cam cover polishing

    Probably better to get it vapour blasted at a place while you stay in and keep warm, then you can wet and dry and polish on the kitchen table and risk death by stare from the Missus

    Car stuck in tree.

    A house I used to live in had a bungalow in front of it . Right on the edge of a road. About a year before I moved in, the bungalow had a car land on its roof by a drunk driver , negotiating the 30 mph village at nearly 100 mph, hitting a grass bank which , Dukes of Hazzard style , launched onto the roof while the owners were asleep. Drunk stumbled out unhurt although his collar was felt quite heavily by Mr Plod soon after.

    Wheel spacers ?

    My experience of changing wheel studs was a real pita. Had to remove the hubs to do it. Which meant new hub nuts which were order only from ford and then finding a torque wrench capable of 200nm and a very large socket to fit the hub nut ! Inserting the new studs was relatively straight forward but I found I had to line up the splines to mate with the original grooves.

    Welcome to the madhouse Tim , from West Berkshire. As for the water leak, have a look at the wiper boxes , as they can leak there and may just need the nut tightening under the wiper arm. Have a red Westie as admin need to sort a maroon one please on emoticons

    IVA date 14 of December

    Well done Chris. Sorry I never made it over to inspect but will make up with a pint when you get it on the road. IVA manual is not exciting to read at all, but if a question does get asked you can give an 'interpretation ' of the build regs as a response . This is focusing to all you guys building cars !!. It helped me too for the test. I think that the test sphere is something they might test but with Westfields being so well designed, the main issues are 'covered' in a pun and they know they are designed for IVA test with ease. I must admit I was pinching myself back up the M5 and M4 in belief that I had done it !!! I was exhausted too and just wanted to get the car home, trailer back to my mates and try and get it to sink in how my car was just a registration plate away from driving on the roads. Well done Chris for getting there and the forms seem to take an age to be posted from the DVLA and it did take 10 working days to arrive. Filled in and returned . I called them 2 weeks later and they were just sending my docs out. I am sure that self build kits dept will be reasonably quiet this time of year, so fingers crossed you will be wrapped up and driving into the chilly sunset soon My car at Bristol at 7:30 am waiting the examiners arrival
