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

Hi Sinisa
As far as I know the 2K that Rob uses is the same stuff as what professional paint shops use so they should be good for now. They certainly look good even though I haven't polished them yet but I suppose time will tell.

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

A big Thanks to my friend Rob (Robyorks) on here for kindly clear coating my headlight lenses as they now look fantastic even though I haven't polished them yet. These were the headlight off the Thunder I'm stripping and the original clearcoat was that badly damaged I'd had to completely remove it s...

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

I went to the classic car show at Notton near Wakefield today and the car went down really well, but, unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of it there :-( Behind me was a current mustang in red, a full blown rally Lancia Delta Integrale to my right and a bubble arched Mexico to my left. It was the...

HELP P1380 error code !!!!

Hi Charlie
I've just bumped it up to be the post below this. You will also need to read and understand Gates technical bulletin \036 for setting the tensioner but just google that.

HELP P1380 error code !!!!

Hi Charlie It took some finding this one but eventually got "misfire detected" at the start of a P1380 description. My guess is you may not have done the cambelt change successfully. Did you follow Ford TIS instructions, replace both the crankshaft pulley and VCT pulley bolts, tension the belt with ...

Speedo stopped, engine cutting out

It's above the gearbox more or less to the rear of the battery tray and as Paul (DOH) says it's a big black plastic plug.

Hi Martin I bought some Oetiker clamps but they ended up being the wrong size so I ended up using the screw clips at the tank and regulator ends and the twin eared clips where I'd plumbed in a tank drain. Once the ears of the clips have been clamped with pincers it's impossible to get them off witho...

Rob and I went to the Castle Howard Fathers day classic show today. It was the first time I've been to this one and it might be the last because even though the show was good the traffic on the A64 was horrendous. We got quite a few people stopping to talk to us and admire the Pumas so interest is d...

Hi Matt
You had me panicking then, I just checked Postimage and there was all sorts of unsavoury allegations but dug a bit deeper and it's actually postimages.org and all my photos are still there.

Hi Matt
I hadn't checked but I know I've had some issues prior to your update with some of my earlier Postimage photos. I'd just about re-loaded them all apart from some on page 6. Don't worry if they're not there I'll just re-load them again.
Thanks again.

Finished off the front bumper today and it looks a lot better as I managed to hide the blow in marks in areas you can't see without laying on the ground. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/964/41408090995_42985118fd_k.jpg 230520183695 by barry wilson , on Flickr The reflections look a bit weird but the ...

Hi Sinisa I'm pretty sure you will find no horrors behind your front bumper as the Puma's are really rot free at the front :-) As for my bike yes I am too old for it but at least it's fun in a dangerous sort of way :grin: It's 1000cc and 145bhp at the crankshaft. Akrapovic makes some beautiful exhau...

Well the sun came out today and with it no wind so I decided to touch up the front bumper where it had been accident damaged prior to me getting the car. I'd painted a couple of areas before but never clear coated it so it was starting to fade. So off came the bumper; https://farm1.staticflickr.com/...
