AndrewOBW posted a topic in Tech Talk...I'll let you come up with the punch line. So I figure it's about time I start a build thread for one of the slowest Westfield builds ever. It might actually motivate me to move a little quicker! I picked up a 1991 1.6 MX5 back in October 2014, picked up my Westfield starter kit in February 2015. A garage (house) move later and it's been progressing very slowly since then! So a few shots from along the way so far: The donor: Kit collection: Moving garage (that's how low a Subaru sits with half a Mazda in the boot and and a Westie chassis on the roof...): Painting a few bits and pieces while saving up some cash for the more expensive bits (who doesn't want purple driveshafts??): Installing the panels (apologies to the purists, it's fake carbon fibre wrap - I'm on a tight budget!): Of course, a mandatory action shot of me looking like an idiot: Tunnel sides haven't been fitted yet. I've got the handbrake in using riv nuts and countersunk bolts so looks nice and tidy at the moment and shouldn't impede too much on the tunnel space! P.S. I also want to thank the Westfield team for their quick turnaround with any errors or missing bits, even a year after collection. As soon as I've noticed anything wrong, it's been at my door the next day. Customer service how it should be! I also want to thank my good friends Stephen and Elena, without whom, the (little) progress so far would have been much slower!
