OK – here goes…another build diary…! Deposit paid last week on an FW kit with the following spec: 2.0 Zetec + throttle bodies Orange body Wide track wishbones Westfield front & rear calipers FW rear diffuser Heater kit Luggage rack with extra boot lid plus locks LED light pack (less headlamps) Carbon effect stone guards Sport turbo seats with orange piping and diamond stitching Four-point harness Momo steering wheel Exhaust guard – powder coated I’ve gone for mid-January delivery as I finish work end-November and I have a rather long list of jobs to do after that, including clearing & sorting the garage (shelving, getting some white paint on the walls and laying some PVC tiles). I’ve been stalking the forum for a while and following a few build diaries, which have all been a great help, so hopefully I can return the favour in the months to come, although I'm sure I'll have a few questions of my own along the way. I must also thank the Thames Valley group for letting me quiz them all during a rare Sunday pub run and ianht71 for showing me round his similar spec FW and taking me for a blast on the roads near his place. The Westfield will join a TR6 in the garage, so it will be interesting to compare the two, and I’ll be spoilt for choice in the summer, although I do now have to buy some metric spanners! I have previous Westfield history, having owned a X-flow engined yellow 7SE back in 89 - 97. I was amazed to find the sale ad I placed in the December 1996 / January 1997 edition of Westfield World (volume 6, issue 56) in the archives on the website – what a great resource! My nearest IVA centre is Yeading, just north of Heathrow, so I’ll be looking for feedback on how to prepare for that at some point next year (fingers crossed…) Wish me luck! Steve

Since owning this vehicle I have covered approximately 2000 Miles in 3 Years. I have only ever driven it in dry weather. When not in use it is stored in a well ventilated garage under a breathable cover hence the chassis is in very good condition for its age with very little corrosion. The bodywork is painted in RAL 2009 Traffic Orange and is overall In very good condition. There are some minor stress cracks in the grp however for an 18 year old vehicle this is to be expected. Great fun on the road and on the track,and a brilliant specification and condition Westfield for your money . As you can see from above, both the engine and gearbox have been rebuilt and a new clutch recently fitted, therefore these major components should keep the new keeper going for some time without major expenditure (many detailed photos available showing internal components during gearbox rebuild/clutch replacement) Reluctantly selling as I now require a more “practical” car with a roof and luggage space for my planned European road trip. Also Included with the sale is a number of spare parts if required including original mirrors, two spare wishbones etc. Depending on your offer I may also throw in a CTEK battery conditioner, used Halfords Advanced all weather breathable car cover and the remainder of my WSSC subscription (if you don’t already have a subscription) which I have just renewed!
