Westfield Megabusa - Modifictions and Upgrades

Just thought I'd start sharing the work I have done to my Megabusa...

Hopefully you all agree that they are improvements...

Feel free to browse my other photo's that I haven't got round to posting yet or may be in other threads.


Boot lid - very kindly done after I had already bought it from James. He had this professionally done in Northern Ireland before I picked it up.

Still waiting on my carbon exhaust so a bit more maintenance and cosmetics.

Replaced the boots on my track rod ends, 3.90 from ebay if any one needs to do this.

Also, the car is covered in HAYABUSA stickers, I know its a Hayabusa engine but the car is a MEGABUSA.

I looked everywhere and searched through multiple threads trying to source a font to make a MEGABUSA decal in the same style as the Hayabusa text, all unsuccessful.

Ended up making one on good old Microsoft Paint on a quiet night. Sent image to local sticker shop and got 2 made. One for the rear, and one for the hood. Took a while to remove existing rear sticker, and the left over sticky residue. (GOO-GONE purchased and this helped dissolve the glue)

Hood decal next, when I get a spare hour or two to remove the stickiness... and finish the exhaust when ever the carbon arrives...

Sticker looks great.

Where is your carbon exhaust coming from?

As Motad that make them for Westfield have closed down according to a couple of users on the WSCC forum

Thanks again CosKev3.

Yeah, I got it from the same place as the trim around the manifold.

Business is called Fibre-Lyte, in Stokesley, North Yorkshire.

Website: - http://www.fibre-lyte.co.uk/

I have a re-packable exhaust, they are making a sleeve for me using high temperature resin. (all custom made to measure, 80)

Very nice chaps to deal with and very reasonable prices. 40 for the piece for the manifold trim, and I could have got 4 trims out of the size I purchased.

Ah right that sounds a bargain for a one off piece!

Hopefully it's as good as you are expecting it to be, will look forward to pics
