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

    Hi Here's a 'side thread' you may wish to read too- 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 on how nice Lloydox's car looks. I've gone for white body with black cycle wing and rear carbon effect stone guards. My spec so far is: wide track, front and rear roll bars, LSD, performance brake upgrade, Protech Shocks, Sports Turbo seats (black with white piping), black harnesses, black wheels, digi dash, MSA half cage, FW rear body and diffuser, powder coated panels. I've taken the lazy option of having the factory fit the panels, brake lines and fuel lines. Kit due for collection late Jan 15 / early Feb 15.

    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, Full Service History, and similar to most I plan on a tidy up and a replacement of ancillaries. Today was time to split the engine and gearbox... Nothing too difficult in the transmission removal, other than trying to get at the bolt just above the starter motor, which I eventually got off with lots of extension leads and undoing the top alternator bolt to slide it out the way. So with the engine now on the engine stand, and transmission on pallet I will now start the clean up and further disassembly to be able to paint it up properly! So I suppose the build has now started!!
  4. 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 to the factory and re-position the tube. Apart from this it has been pretty straight forward.

    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, where the car developed at an exponential rate, gaining straight cut gears, and considerably more horsepower than it left Vauxhall with: Not quite it's final look, but here's where the car has roughly got to: Still love driving the car now, as much as when I first built it. I use it even more in fact, but...
  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 turning our garage from a dirty & dusty place where we'd dump all manner of stuff to what I hope resembles a workshop fit for a Westfield. We've got more tools and to come in a few weeks hopefully (my birthday ) We really are complete novices, we've never tried anything remotely like this, its quite a daunting challenge but with your kind help and advice I'm sure we'll be driving around in a bright orange and black FW next spring! We will be asking a LOT of questions, I'll apologise now for any questions which turn out to be silly or obvious Cheers Steve & Karrena
  7. Hello, Dipping my toe for the first time into Forums, umm bit nervous to be honest don't know what all the protocol's are , asked by Daughter what's a Tag? Anyway here I go FW special kit is sitting on a table in my rented garage in Oxfordshire it will be I hope one day a > Black lower with white upper 170 hp Limited slip diff brakes upgrade heater I have already cheated by getting chassis panels,wiring,fuel pipes and brake pipes factory fitted due to a last minute wobble in confidence. Now I have made a tentative start but soon ran into difficulties with the Diff, a grim day that I would not want to repeat as my friend/helper John left me to it saying " It don't fit and wont fit" in the end I agreed and gave in. A couple emails back and forth to Westfield and a van was dispatched to return my chassis for inspection, it turns out that a welding error had occurred. Anyway eight days later the chassis was returned with the Dif fitted. Photo shows the chassis faulty welding, drive flange hitting chassis. Q1 The drive flange's were already fitted to the diff so I assume they do not need tapping in place? Q2 Off the wall question, I still refer to build as a 'It' not a 'She' when will It become a She?
  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 200bhp, the Honda S2000 engine really made sense to me. A visit to the factory in July impressed me in terms of the quality of components used in the cars and the backup that should be available from such a well established company. So decision made, I ordered a complete kit. Since July I have been stuck down by upgraditous on a regular basis, with the reasoning that it is cheaper to upgrade some parts now rather than later!! So at this moment the spec stands at: Mega S2000 kit - white body work - carbon effect front arches Powder coated panels LSD - this will be a Mazda unit (the first customer build Mazda LSD chassis!) 3.727:1 Wide track wishbones Protech shocks Hispec "Race" front callipers & rear Hispec callipers Wheel package - 8" rears 7" fronts, 205 T1R's Digi Dash Windscreen FW Rear MSA half cage Sport turbo seats - white piping 3" harnesses Carbon effect stone guards Black rear diffuser Heater kit and the latest edition.......Omex throttle bodies (something for the wife to wrap for Christmas!) So having ordered the kit at the end of July, delivery should have been end of October, but is now looking like being the middle of this month. Having spent some time looking for an engine and gearbox from a breaker I decided to buy a complete car instead and hopefully break what I don't need and recover some cash (to spend on more upgrades!) So here it is, it's a 2003 Cat D write off with 52550 miles on it. I bought it in an online auction without seeing it which was somewhat of a risk. Once the car was delivered, I put some fuel in it and charged the battery and to my great relief it fired up and ran really nicely. Once I'd removed some of the bent bits, I was able to take it for a quick drive on the "private" road near where I work. It drove very well, all the gears work and it also does pretty good donuts! The strip down to follow...

    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 kit I need to: Strip the donor Clean the garage Paint the garage floor Erect garage shelving Build a trolley to build the car on Suffice to say I've got plenty to do. I've ordered my kit in hooligan orange, with detachable rear arches and side panels fitted and I'm aiming for a 550kg road-going build. Next up is to compression test the engine....

    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 inspiration for this project and in no small way persuaded me to opt for a Westfield. All observation, advice, criticism and comments will be gratefully received during the course of the build, I hope to keep you entertained!!!
