  1. Adge Cutler- Dorset AO

    Adge's Sport 250 Build & Tinkering Thereafter!

    Hello all, afraid the time has come for me to start my threatened build thread!! After a crack of dawn start (for me anyway) arrived at Kingswinford. Spent a very enjoyable and informative three hours or so with Ian and the rest of the crew. Van expertly loaded by Ian, didn't move an inch on the return journey. Had a good look at the cars in build and took loads of photos, including a lot of the factory 250 which Ian was kind enough to raise on the ramp so that I could have a good poke about and photo all things hidden when it's on th ground. Obligatory shot of bits in the van.

    Mega S2000 Build - By Andy

    Well for years I have been after a hobby and to build we Westfield. I first thought of building a SEight. I got the engine, I build a dedicated 52sqm garage. My wife then wanted to move, that was eight years ago. I then got my new house extension sorted and finally I managed to build my new garage, dedicated to an unhealthy obsession with Volvo R cars and a new project. The mega S2000. This is my stage four S60R at nordschleife. I almost purchased a kit whilst at Stoneleigh, where I go every year. In talking to some folk who have bu
  4. Hello Everyone, Hope you are all well and looking forward to helping me with my many questions that will surely be posted over the coming months , but hopefully not Years. My name is Mark and have been looking to build my own kit for decades, but due to financial and time constraints have never really got it off the ground. The kids have finally left the nest , so no more running around after them and for some unknown reason the finances also look better. My mechanic skills are limited, changed brakes, differentials, universal joints and even repaired a wiring loom for my Spi

    jonjh1964's XI Build

    I managed to find a Midget as a donor, not in the best shape (it's a complete mess really) but it's one of the last 1275 engines, built in late 1974, and looking at other XI builders blogs and posts most of the parts are refurbished or upgraded as part of the build. Chris from the Dorset Area, provided the transport and his outstanding trailer reversing skills meant that the car was rolled straight into the garage. The first couple of sessions in the garage has resulted in the engine, gearbox, steering column, steering rack, engine, gearbox and SR mounts and hand brake lev
  6. New visitor here. Mark from Oxfordshire. I have an orange and black complete Zetec SE kit on order and I should be picking it up in two weeks time ( fingers crossed weather etc). This is my second build, sort have got a rather expensive build habit forming. I have to confess I embraced the dark side first, I assembled a Caterham 160 in 2016 / 2017. All IVA'd and great fun on road and track, looking forward to the challenge of assembling the Westy 2 Litre, the test drive was great so looking forward to 150 BHP vs 80 BHP. House rule is I can keep the 160 till the Westy is IVA'd after t

    Now that my car is starting to look like a car, it occurred to me that I suspect its probably not covered under our household insurance. Has anybody any experience, or suggestion on if its possible to get a policy to cover the car, which as its in-build, as obviously I cant insurer it any normal route it as its not got a registration yet. Appreciate any suggestions or companies that might be able to help?

    Starting a Build

    Hello, just taken delivery of my Sport250 kit. No manual as yet just the ten year old rolling chassis manual. Is it normal to wonder what the hell I've done? At the moment we think we'll spend more time trying to work it out than building...
  9. 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
  10. I have been in-touch with Simon from Westfield who has told me there is a new build manual on the way, which should time nicely for me in about 6 to 8 weeks, but just wondering what others have used in the mean time? I have a pretty well setup double garage space, with a good set of workbenches. Lots of DIY tools (It’s a man thing), pillar drill, a few electric hand tools, pretty decent air compressor, good 4” Record vice, as well as quite a lot of tooling in the form of hammers and spanners etc. Have a good pair of tressels to hold the chassis up for the start. My father in-law (

    Build complete

    So I think I have finished my build! It has taken 1 year 4 months since I bought the Mazda. Can anyone see anything glaringly obvious that looks like an IVA fail? I am chancing it with the front indicators, is this a bad move? Steering wheel pad not fitted yet. Any advice would be appreciated
  12. 1 Ton Engine Crane, Load Leveller, both used once only as new, and unused Engine Stand. £100 all three - £237 new price, Because of weight this has to be collection only purchase from Billericay in Essex.
  13. “Smile – you’re in Sharjah!” Mmm, well that’s what the flowers spell out, next to Sharjah bus station. Sharjah’s the third largest State in the UAE, after Abu Dhabi and Dubai - and Mandy and I live and work here. It’s car friendly; low tax – hence cheaper to buy - affordable insurance, a cheap flat-rate annual registration (road tax equivalent), cheap speeding fines and extremely cheap fuel. So, on a visit to the Newark show last summer I handed my credit card to Simon at Westfield and ordered a Mega S2000. A colleague here who’s built a Cobra advised me to buy a kit where everyth

    Trailer Build Diary

    (I started a blog, but feel a forum will be better for comments ect. Thanks Paul and Terry for your comments so far) I built my Westfiield last year and have a nice home for it in my garage. Due to work I am due to move in October and where I am moving to there is no garages - I also tend to move every 2 years and can't guarantee if I will have anywhere to store it. My solution is to build an enclosed trailer. I explored many options including purchasing a Brian Williams trailer, but spending the same on a trailer as I have done on the car is a bit silly and I don't have that cash lying ar
