    Really enjoyed my run out in it this afternoon. The crossflow hauls it along a treat!

    Thought I would try some different seat configurations, as a I have the original bench seats. Prompted to do this by the post from @nice_guy looking for a car that the description fits mine in many ways. Hadn't thought much about selling it just yet , but there's always that next project! If I decided to sell it, how on earth to I price it? Also fitted the screen, and also tried it without the headrests. Sure I'll settle on the best combination eventually.

    It's about time...

    If you get over your fear of aluminium, here's a picture with the windscreen and bench seats!

    Loved it! Still grinning now, but I have been out again. Just had to turn the rear dampers up a couple of clicks, but all good other than that. Down side of fitting inner wings on the rear, had to take the boot box out to get at the dampers! Cheers Gary

    Thanks all, and thanks to @Marto303 for the stunning paintwork! I think I'll fit the standard screen as I have one, but I think brooklands aero screens would suit it. Might possibly change between the two. I couldn't fit the screen until the rear wing were in place as I need to position the side screens, which will give me the position of the screen, there are no reference point on the scuttle. Had a little run round some local lanes, nothing fell off! managed a little squeal from the tyres changing to second, which added to my grin. Gets a bit exciting above 50 with no screen or helmet!

    Life with a Westy – the early days...

    Hi, Welcome, I have a similar combination of a Cayman and an old school Westfield. Both great fun in very different ways! I've just fitted headrests for IVA. I had some 5mm aluminium plate machined and a local upholsterer made up the pads.
