    Ian K's S2000 build thread & life there after!

    Hi Yesterday I bought a 48K engine and gearbox (+loom, ancillaries etc). I was able to compression test the engine and hear it running too. Car was a 2004 plate. Car had light damage to passenger side (looks like it had spun). One of the half shafts was out so couldn't move the car under it's own power. Though all gears tested as okay with no load. Oil was clean, coolant and air filter looked healthy too. Four good same brand tyres on car too, so looks like it had a good life until it spun! No timing chain rattle on cold start up either! Based o
  2. Hi everyone, A bit late in getting on to the forum but hopefully we can some experiences on the way over the next xxx months! The car is an FW SE which I have chosen to keep as standard for the first build. I've added a few extras such as 4-Pot calipers, wide front track, Heater, LED rear lamps, Sports Turbo Seats & Four point harnesses. I've just about completed the first module but have encountered a frame build issue with one of the transmission tunnel tubes being built out of position. Westfield have been really good and are going to take the half built chassis back in

    Build Thread. Mega S2000

    My first visit to the Westfield factory was December 2003, for the usual tour and a test drive. A few short hours later, I was on my way back up the M6, a build manual on the passenger seat and a cheque left safely behind as deposit for my starter kit. It;s been a great ten years of ownership in the meantime, with a car that's gone through quite a few changes and a lot of development. From the simple aeroscreened, stripped out road/track car with throttle bodied Redtop Vauxhall power, seen here near the end of it's build: It then saw a couple of short seasons in the Speed Series,

    Tim's Mega S2000 Build

    So, having spend many months following this forum and reading the excellent build threads I visited the Westfield factory in August and the kit was purchased. I am picking it up in 10 days (not that I'm counting) and plan on keeping this build thread as up to date as possible. I have learnt a lot from reading everyone's build threads, and not being too mechanically minded I know I will be posting lots of questions!! So having spent yesterday tidying up the garage, Thank you to my girlfriend Lynda for helping me, and allowing me to hoover the floor!! I have purchased an F20C with 50k miles
  6. I'm writing the first entry of our build thread from the passenger seat of a Luton van taking to us to Kingswinford to overnight before picking up our FW Special Edition kit tomorrow morning. The excitement has been building for us from the moment we placed the order at the end of last year until now, the kit car is my 40th birthday present from my wife (who will definitely be the boss during the build!!). Today reminds me of that Christmas Eve feeling you used to get as a kid, you can't wait for tomorrow when you'll get to unwrap all those cool new toys! We have spent the last 4 weeks

  8. Well here goes, my favourite pass time over the last few months has been reading all of the fantastic build threads on the forum, so I'll do my best to document my build as I go along. All feedback, pointers and general banter gratefully received! Having spent months pondering over the various 7 type cars available along with the various power train options, with help from you guys on here I eventually realised that building a Westfield ticked most of my boxes. Having looked at other engine options and the costs associated with getting a Zetec or Duratec over or even up to 200

    Marks FW Westfield Build Diary

    Hello to everyone on the forum. I am a complete novice who knows nothing about cars, but has decided to give this a go! Went to collect module 1 of the FW kit from the factory yesterday.... Managed to get everything unpacked and chassis on the build stands today, ready for the build to really start next weekend! Going to need plenty of help from you guys!
  10. This thread doesn't start with a trip to the Westfield factory, or a picture of a shiney floored empty garage, it starts with a long neglected unfinished machine, that looks like this As you can see it's as much a restoration as it is a build. It's a 1991 Pinto Seiw that has never been near a road. Bought by a friend as an unfinished project in 1993 and never progressed further than this. Aiming to Get it road legal eventually if at all possible, maybe, well we can always just do a few track days in it, let's see how far we get
  11. Hi all, I thought now would be a good time to start a build thread, being as the remains of my old 379bhp Mk1 Focus RS went to its new owner to rebuild today: Then was replaced by this: A 1993 1.6 Eunos with mandatory broken drivers window mechanism, great oil pressure and no need to use one of those nasty catalytic converters. She runs and drives great and is a tidy car tbh, seems a shame to rip it apart The date for my kit was originally 14th of March but due to the fibreglass supplier switch it's been put back by a week. That's fine by me as before I collect the

    FW Special Edition Build Thread

    I am due to pick up my FW Special Edition kit on Thursday 8 October, will be picking up a Luton van and heading down to Kingswinford tomorrow for an overnight stop and an early start on Thursday. I have just about sorted out my garage workspace, installed extra plug sockets, an extra LED strip light, painted the floor and made numerous trips to the tip!! Thanks to Mark Wendon - I now know how to upload photos!! I have the obligatory air tools, left over from my previous aeroplane building project I have read all the other posted build threads - which, without doubt, provided the inspir
