£500 pound mot

Sounds about right. We've had an MOT that was similar a couple of years ago and then 2 since where nothing has needed doing..... Depends how much you want to drive a Puma. Everyday if I could I own a 10 Plate fiesta zetec s but it's diesel and quite boring to drive I love my puma it's a thrill to d...

£500 pound mot

367756 Sounds like you're going to pump money into a rotten shell. It's on nearly 100k according to your post history. It's worth £350-£400 with a 12 month mot. No one will buy a "future classic" that's had or needs welding work, well you won't get top dollar. :roll: You'll need to dry store it for...

£500 pound mot

367745 Ring around the local garages and get quotes. You'd have to know the labour rate and how many hours they're putting into it. I wouldn't spend £500 on a 17-18 year old car, personally. I'd just buy another £500 banger for another year with a 12 month MOT. Aye I'll get myself a clio or corsa o...

£500 pound mot

Depends on the milage of the car. And how long you want it for. If you want it for 5 years then it'll need welding every year or two in different parts now the floorpan has gone. Wishbones are about £30-£40 a pair and easy to install any DIY'er could do it themselves. Droplinks are also easy if you...

I saw a Puma the other day now I want one!

Hi J Welcome to the forum. Glad to hear you're going to get shut of the VW :grin: . The millennium's a good choice for a Puma but wheel arch rust is the least of your worries. The whole area around the sills/inner sills/beam mount/chassis rail/rear outer and inner arch bottoms. If you're going to b...
