    Half hood on FW with standard hoop

    I think that I was only asked for one dimension which was the distance between the windscreen and the hoop. I will give them a call.

    Half hood on FW with standard hoop

    Here's what I have to work with. The Y-shaped straps aren't long enough to reach to underneath the rear lip and so I think that they'll have to go in side the boot. My only concern is that the straps will end up being tensioned by the boot lid. Simon.
  3. Hi, Looking to fit my half hood on my FW with standard hoop. I have fitted the channel rail and the front press studs. Does anyone have any pictures of how they fitted their rear straps? Cheers, Simon.

    1st Oil Change

    There are two plugs on my sump (front and side). Does it matter which one I drain from?

    1st Oil Change

    A new filter it is then. Any idea of the part number?

    1st Oil Change

    Yes I have a container! I had seen the following suggested on this forum; 500 miles - oil (10w40) 1000 miles - oil (10w40) + filter 2000 miles - oil (5w30) + filter Any thoughts?

    1st Oil Change

    It is testament to Westfield Sports Cars and the assistance of this forum that I have managed to build my car and get it through an IVA with not even the prior experience of doing an oil change on a car before! Now that I have completed 500 miles it is time to perform my first ever oil change. Is it as simple as removing the plug on the sump, letting the oil drain out, replacing the plug and refilling with oil? My engine is a 2 litre Zetec Black Top so i believe that it will require 4.5 litres of oil. Cheers, Simon.

    My new Schroth Harnesses.

    They look great! My standard Westfield harnesses are a real faff to adjust so these are definitely on my (long) shopping list. Simon.
