Front Door Weather Strips

Hi Simon
This is a common fault but the seals themselves may still be available as James (XAF) just got me a new pair from Ford. Be aware though, they aren't cheap!

My Puma 1.7, more than a year on (A works in progress)

I finally got my drivers side mirror rubbed down and repainted but no time yet to flat and polish it but it still looks pretty good. https://i.postimg.cc/TPbm3b18/290320194004.jpg Last Thursday my friend from the Westfield club, Des , Started work on the paintwork of my car to remove the myriad circ...

Yes, if you can get a piece of the original leather off the damaged panel you can get it sent to Furnitureclinic for matching and then they can send you out the necessary paint etc to match any panels you have renewed in either vinyl or leather.

Hi Sinisa
Good to see the latest original part Ford HCV used, it should last at least 5 years.

My Puma 1.7, more than a year on (A works in progress)

With the promise of a fine day today I decided to finally get around to fitting my new drivers side door handle that Andrew had found for me at Ford Fair last year. The existing handle was well past it with lacquer flaking off all over the place. https://i.postimg.cc/yxvG99J2/070820183785.jpg I had ...

Advice on Puma's especially rot

Hi Zaph Sills are available from Expressed panels and if you are used to welding on old cars shouldn't be too hard to fit but the inner sills would, possibly need repairs as well but that is just sheet steel cut to shape. For me the ultimate no-no is the chassis rail adjacent to the rear beam mount,...

Hi Sinisa
How are you going to repair it, with new pipes from Ford or go to a Hydraulic shop and have custom pipes made up? When I get the pipes off my scrapper Thunder I'm hoping I can get some made up in better materials at Pirtek.

Advice on Puma's especially rot

Hi Zaph The most serious area of rot on a Puma as you rightly said is around the rear inner and outer wheelarches and sills but they also tend to rot on the main rear chassis rail around where the rear beam brackets are. Any rot up to 300mm from the beam brackets is an instant MOT failure and if it'...

TBH I think you may struggle to get it high enough with normal axle stands unless you have lorry ones.

Requesting exhaust manifold 'how to' guide

Hi Mate The standard exhaust manifold and cat comes out through the engine bay ie upwards so first remove the heat shields (usually some of the small bolts/screws are seized). Next detach the exhaust system from the manifold under the car just behind the flexi joint (usually a pig of a job but if yo...

My Puma 1.7, more than a year on (A works in progress)

Took the Puma for it's MOT today and it passed with flying colours, even the dreaded emissions test but I had to get the cat well warm and it was great to see the red numbers on the screen scrolling down until they went into the black. The CO was nearly up at .4 and the lambda 1.009 before they coun...
