My Puma (formally pictures at last)

Hi. Can someone get me some psychiatric help please. The sorry saga continues. Well, 2018 I spent £1360 on getting an MOT. Sept 2019 I fitted a 27k engine replacement to my Puma with all new parts where possible...cost, £1450. Now the reason for the engine change was for some time I had promised mys...

My Puma (formally pictures at last)

Hi Brian, Yes, thanks. I have my spare splitter that I can use as a plug for the making of another mold. I hope to get my car back the end of next week then I think I will look into see what companies I can approach. In the past I think I sold about five splitters to Mk5 Fiesta owners ( they fit ver...

Hi I run Focus ST 170 wheels with 205/40/17 tyres. I also run 30 mm HR hubcentric spacers front and rear, you will need these spacers with the ST wheels, the bearings only load up the equivalent of 16mm spacers. Over the past six years there has been no problems with the wheel bearings. I have also ...

My Puma (formally pictures at last)

Hi Guys, Thanks for the positive comments. It is in having a cam upgrade and a remap at the moment. A right sorry saga, more in due course. With regard the splitter. When I was working (now retired) a work colleague and myself made the splitters between us. He is not interested in doing it any more....

Hi, I could and would like to put more threads on my Project post but without being able to post photos I really don't think it is worth it. It is such a faff to post photos, It was a right rigmarole when doing it with Photo Bucket. My question is this. Would it be possible to grasp the bull by the ...

Hi, When I was into Mini Coopers. Our club had designated members of which I was one, who would examine a Cooper and write a report and valuation for their insurance company. All we need to do is put such a scheme into place in partnership with insurance companies who wish to be on board. At the tim...

Hi Well I just got my fifth one no. 542. WHY ??? Hi mad4jags, I just noticed The names you have for your cars. Are the names based on the letters in the registration plate.

Hi.
I personally think (obviously) the props look as though the designers ran out of ideas when they came to the wheels. I think they look dreadful.

My Puma (formally pictures at last)

Hi.

Door all done, the whole side of the car had to be done to blend it in. Apparently the best match was a colour from a Maserati. :grin: I haven't noticed the car going any faster though. I also had the rear bumper done whist it was in the body shop.

Regards.

What a drag.

Hi. Thanks for you replies. I in fact have two ST170 wheels with new tyres. The only space I need in the boot is room for two carrier bags of shopping. The idea of the spare in the boot is to a) save grovelling under the back of the car on a dirty wet road in the dark (worst case scenario) and b) ha...

What a drag.

Hi, I run Focus ST 170 wheels on my Puma, as most of you have deduced the spare will not fit in the standard spare wheel space under the car. As a result I carry the spare in the boot, so there is no point lugging round the weight of the steel spare and the tray. Now in the interests of weight and d...

Hi Just an update. My next door neighbour reversed int my car and stoved in the passenger door. Something I could have done without. They will pay to have it sorted.

Fuel filter inlet pipe leak,

Hi Red.

Thanks for the reply....yes that horrible white clip. I thought a J clip was the only way to go, I thought I would ask before cutting the white clip off in case the plastic fuel line would not crush down enough to effectively seal. Then I would be in an even worse situation.

Fuel filter inlet pipe leak,

Hi. I changed my fuel filter, all came apart no problem, I even clipped the filter body back into position with the original clamp. However when under pressure the inlet pipe wanted to come off. When pushed back on and held into position it sealed perfectly. It would appear that it is not a leak pro...

Hi, About two years ago I purchased for £110 a pair of almost mint headlight assemblies. I have just fitted them, what a difference, they look so good compared to the old ones. I did regularly polish the old ones to try and maintain there appearance though. Now I have some spare light components I w...
