  1. Westwood Grille Fabrication (Fibreglass)

    Hi all, been a long time since I updated this, I wouldn't say I lost interest, more like I have been distracted by lots of other projects Anyway, I have made a small start on the grille, so far so good. I am working in small sections at a time so I can be as perfectionist as possible. Once the mould is done I will sand it down and use a thin skim of body filler over any rough patches, then paint. For originality I was thinking of painting it a creamy white colour, but part of me wants to do something a little custom like silver
  2. Westwood Questions

    Would love to see more and see any paperwork you might have, if you get time to upload it (and any updates to your Westwood too!)

    That's a real shame, but I would be really interested to see a photo! Welcome to the forum, MowMaster! I am glad you're liking the thread, and I agree Westwoods are great tractors. There are a few Westwood fans here with W11's. Also I thought you folks might want to see these photos that my brother took (he's an amateur photographer), I think they look great:

    What a beauty, great job on the Bug! I am so pleased to see some of these being restored

    Happy Christmas all! I got a Wheelhorse shirt from my girlfriend- wahey! Hope you all had a good one.

    Ah yes sorry I forgot to mention they are spade-style connectors, once you take off the plastic cover that is seen in the pictures of the lights on ebay, there's a positive, negative and earth. Unfortunately I haven't seen a new set of headlights with screw connectors. I think WestwoodW8Gazelle is referring to the type of connectors like in the photo he shared, as opposed to the modern spade connector types.

    Thanks! I would be very interested to see your Westwood and any updates. My headlight was from ebay, if you search for "Case International 384,444,585,674,784 Tractor Head Light" you should be able to find the ones I got (I decided to get a spare too) but I don't think I am allowed to post direct links here. Can PM you if you need it though. They were a little pricey, but not too bad I suppose. Haha fair enough, will look forward to hearing abut the pulley

    Looks like top fun! No snow here on Dartmoor

    Here's the Westwood with the new seat I got for my birthday and a new headlight The seat is really nice, I also replaced the bar and clip that the seat pivots on to reveal the storage box (or boot? ) with two M8s because the bar was very loose and the seat wobbled on even a slight hill. It's very comfortable now

    Ok, I hadn't considered some of these points, thanks for the advice, chaps- I shall use Waxoyl
  12. My New Wheels...

    Hi all, just have a question- has anyone ever considered undersealing a car with Owatrol oil? I only ask because unlike Wax-oil, it dries solid so is nicer to work with, and also it penetrates paint in order to kill rust.

    That's bonkers! Never seen anything like that, I hope your friend was alright. Judging by that hammer for scale it looks like it could be 2 foot deep...
  14. My New Wheels...

    Thanks for the comments! I am really happy with it as it is so tidy and almost entirely rust free, and has never had welding done. You are spot on, Chris, it had an elderly owner who kept it garaged, kept every single invoice and it only has 51k miles. My intention is to nip the couple of very small rust marks in the bud and although I will use it, I want to preserve it in its current state. I think rust is the main killer of cars like this so I will be keeping on top of it

    Well it technically counts as an old machine I suppose but not for garden use This is my new (new to me) car, an Orion!!
