Like the wheels, but would be affraid to drive around with them: they have curbmarks all over just waiting to happen, I am affraid!

But, it is a nice looking car!

Looks very smart indeed. I like low cars on standard size rims.

Did you do the rear indicator lenses yourself? Just a case of splitting the pod and putting reversing lenses in instead of the orange. How did you seal it back up, because i was thinking about doing it myself but i'm fearful of them steaming up all the time. I guess it's a bit sunnier there than here though.

Yes, i did this way in some 4 different pumas because removing the front part its a bit boring and cracks very easily sometimes. The process is quite simple, Cut the rear with very caution, remove the orange lense, put the "white" lense back on pulling to their position with a sewing thread, remove the sewing thread then glue or use silicone to put the rear part in her place and its done.


I'll leave here some pics of the "New" Seats installed some months ago.

Hi fellas,
As been a while since i gave my own Puma some attention because i was busy doing some Work along with a mate in another Puma who took us way to much of our time and effort that wasn't worthy.

List of things to be made/ installed:

- MiM Wheels 16'' ( Same Model as FRK / FRP but in 16'' prob. a rare find)
- 300mm Brake Conversion
- New Mondeo Mk3 Caliper Seals
- New Brake Discs / Pads for the Rear
- Brand New Front / Rear Brake Hoses
- New Oem Side Markers from a Connect
- New Focus Mk3 Mist Jets

- New Fuel Cut Switch Cover
- Boot Release Switch
- Later Type Black Heater Panel
- Black Dash Surround
- Ghia Sunvisors
- Clock w/ Temperature
- AutoDiming Mondeo Mk3 Mirror
- Oem Footwells lights
- Focus Mk1.5 Center Console
- Chrommed Ghia Door Handles
- Non-Smoking Dash Ash
- Digital Clocks (Black w/ Red needles)
- Focus Stereo Stalk
- Blaupunkt TravelPilot DX (Factory Brand New)
- New window Switches

And thats all i can think at the moment!

Bye to the 15's.
