Super Sport 1800 rebuild

Whilst there has been a bit of natter in the hello thread I thought it would be best to start the rebuild diary here.

 

So the intention here is to rebuild this super sport 1800

 

As can be seen on in the photos this is a pretty messed up Westfield. But I never like doing things that are easy.

 

The car starts and runs which is always a good start but everything that isn’t damaged now needs to be transferred to a shiny new chassis.

 

The end goal is to be running and FK body in white with everything else in black but retaining a nod to it’s past with an orange detail yet to be thought out running down the centre line

 

The list of what’s needed at this point is as follows:

 

General:

New chassis (ordered)

Body work

Engine mounts for Zetec 1.8

Fuel tank

Black wing mirrors

New wheels (going for 15 Inch Calibre Motion in black)

Airbox (going for jenvey or ITG)

 

Offside front

Top and bottom standard wishbones

Upright 

Damper (Spax)

Anti roll-bar drop link
carbon cycle mud guard

 

Offside rear

Top and bottom standard wishbones (sorted)

Upright (sorted)

Damper (GAZ)

 

if anyone can help with the above please reply and let me know how much for the part.

First question is how doe the seats come out?

 

Also what do people normally do to split the ball joints from the front hubs?

Ok the rack is out an various other bits. The youngest is really enthusiastic about getting his hands on the spanner’s.
 

cant believe how easy this is to pull apart. Bit like a big RC car.

I'll be interested to see how long the lad's enthusiasm lasts. My two lasted about 2 days then went back to their PlayStations

Answered this with the creative use of a bottle jack

Can anyone let me know how the seats come out? Do we have to in bolt from the bottom or is there another way of sliding them out of the runners?

The Sports Seats as standard have a downward facing stud on each runner at the back of the seat, the fronts used to be seperate nuts and bolts on each runner, but many people used to just tack weld the front bolts in to making fitting easier. note the two runners on each seat are completely separate parts and as soon as they're loose will slide independently of each other!

So to get the seats out I need to undo the bolts from the bottom of the car?

@Stuart thanks for confirming, I thought there might be a trick like sliding them out of the sliders. Ho hum I guess having it sat on pallets needs to change

Yep, you need some build stands. Stick a post in wanted and you might find a kind member willing to loan you a set. I did. 

 

@s2rrr any idea where you stands are currently? Are they still with the gent, I passed them to over 3 years ago?

@Paul Aspden The 2nd I have some build stands you can have and I’m only in Warrington. Will swap you for those wheels as they will look great on my build lol.

 

Only messing if you want them they are yours.

You can have the wheels in trade but two are really bent
