    Default Westfield Mega S2000 questions

    Does anyone on here own a Westfield S2000 with the newer "FW" rear end with lockable hard lid? If so, can you please share a picture of the "trunk compartment?

    I would also be interested in the same compartment in the classic body style for comparison.

    Thanks!

    I own a 2014 Mega S2000 with the classic body. I love the car but never had use for the parcel tray so I removed it to save the weight. I replaced it with a thin sheet of carbon sheet.

    So....I own the car you are looking at but don't have it set up with the tray.

    The boot box for the classic body is pretty small as it is designed to drop in from the top and doesn't take advantage of the room afforded by the sloping of the rear bodywork or the rear firewall. I jettisoned mine during the rebuild and fabricated a custom boot box out of aluminum that's significantly bigger and has a removable floor making it very easy to access the area around the diff. It's not that hard to do, so I wouldn't worry about that aspect. However, I seem to recall reading that the FW bodywork necessitates a smaller fuel tank, which is something that I would investigate.

    Sounds reasonable trick to save weight.

    Default Is this what you're looking for?

    If this is the lockable lid you want info about, let me know and I'll shoot a picture of the interior.

    That looks good Rob. Curious to see the interior as well.

    Default WFLD boot box

    Here are some (low-res reduced file size so I could send four) pix of the boot box. The lid is equipped with two keyed latches, and is mounted on slide-off hinges so it can be easily removed. There is a deeper area in the front of the box, ahead of the fuel tank, which I use to carry a rain suit, a compact "anorak" windbreaker with hood, a small tool roll, a towel, a couple of shop towels and an emergency tire inflator bottle. That load still leaves room for a couple of padded parkas and hats, or some carefully folded clothing baggage. If you have a convertible soft top its frame will fold up into the box and the fabric portion will fit inside the frame, still leaving room for the stuff in the deeper area of the box (I have a top which I only installed once and then put right back in the box since I prefer running with only little bug-deflector "aero screens" instead of the full windshield.) Note in the pic with the lid closed there is a hole in the leading edge of the box an lid, adjacent to the roll bar, for the top frame when folded down. This setup is not watertight but could probably be made so with a little work; I just drilled a couple of drain holes in the bottom of the box instead.Name:  IMG_0785.JPG

    The space inside is narrower than I thought, still very useful.

    Rob, do you have a long range fuel tank? I've never seen one without a flat bottom before.

    Thanks,

    Might be, I don't remember. I think it's the standard tank that was supplied in the SEight package. Seems like it holds apx 11-12 gallons. Here are the only two pix I have of it among the many I shot during construction.Click image for larger version.

    The flat bottom boot box might have been for the live-axle cars. I built this kit in year 2000/2001 while I was MD for the US Westfield importer/distributor (my second SEight, the first with the S2000 powertrain) and do not have any direct experience with the live-axle cars.
    Sorry I can't be more helpful about this.
