Hi everyone, my name is James, I'm 28 from the northwest and extremely privileged to own a SEi wide V8 Westfield. I am an aircraft fitter currently working for Airbus UK and before that I worked, I mean, made the brews at a garage whilst I was in college. My hobbies include traveling, 2-stroke 1/5 scale RC cars and gaming mainly along with volunteering as an RNLI lifeboat crew member. My Westfield is my proudest possession, my Dad built her in 1996 in the garage in our back garden. She has always been his pride and joy and he loved nothing more than taking friends out for a quick scare. Unfortunately however, he passed away last year from pancreatic cancer. And about 2 weeks before he died, his last gift to me was the Westfield. So now the once hugely sentimental car my Dad built is even more sentimental to me. My family had gathered to watch him hand over the log book so they could see my reaction. It was as you would expect, I was dumbstruck, I had no words for him that could possibly describe what I was feeling. Even know I can't. 20 years on she still looked amazing. You may be wondering why I would tell you that. It's because I'm about to make a plea. 3 days ago I was driving to work when on exiting a blind bend there was a wagon overtaking a parked wagon. I was extremely lucky as I managed to avoid the collision with the wagon, however I was unable to avoid the brick wall and pillar. My heart broke the second I watched the nearside wheel crumple against the bodywork, I had done the unthinkable. He trusted me enough to look after her and I ruined her. This is my plea for help, I can't let her go, I have a need to get her back in one piece. So much so, the day of the accident I didn't seek medical attention, I spent the day removing the mangled parts I could. I couldn't leave her looking like that. But I need advice, I have mechanical skills but I don't know the first thing about rebuilding a car. Any advice you guys can give me on what the best course to take and parts suppliers would hugely appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read this, stay safe.
