Westfield SEi restoration - revamp/rethink

Hi,
This looks like a great forum! Iím new to this site but Iíve started a Westfield SEi restoration so thought this a great place to visit for research and advice on parts of the car that need a revamp/rethink.

If anyone is interested Iím adding the restore diary to YouTube to chronicle my progress

https://youtu.be/sg8Yolf-hxc


Keep up the good work, I'll be a frequent visitor;o)

Welcome! Yes it is. Just a bit quiet with christmas shopping I think.

Dont think you can go wrong for that money though.
Look forward to seeing the (pro) progress

Looks a good project at a very good price. That's a £10K+ car once properly sorted
A mate has a very similar spec Westy (C20XE, ITBs etc) albeit in better shape.

Thanks hopefully some TLC and elbow grease can start the fight back to former glory:0) I see you have a Haynes roadster? I bought the book with good intentions, the westi will be my substitute project;0)

Ha ha did you really send him the mug?

Looks like that car has been sat out under a sheet for a while.

But as above,its a bargain for £2.5k.

One request if possible,more footage of actual work on the car in future episodes please,less of the 'I'm a youtuber I love the sound of my own voice' footage!

Hi
For anyone who's interested I've stared putting things back together, and started tinkering with that Vauxhall Redtop engine. Please see my latest video below. I'm going to start picking your brains as I've got some tricky jobs coming up;O)

Thanks

Coming up well

Still say the screen supports/surround should have been powder coated black though

I must admit one pulled into a garage next to me yesterday with all black parts and a full roll cage with a hard top and it did look EPIC....It was food for thought!!!!! Once she's fully up and running i might make one or two mods, and she's crying out for stripes I reckon
