N/S door

I have a drivers door in silver but the passenger door went to the tip, unfortunately.

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

You're probably right Rob, I just remember back to the eighties when it used to be used on the rear flange of escort wings. I thought it was a glue then but more probably used as a sealer to stop the door jambs getting blasted. This stuff I've got sticks to anything, especially your fingers and it's...

Evaluate under 'Audrey' for us please!

Hi Mate I did pretty much the same as Rick only in 2013 and my car had just over 37k miles on it. I thought I'd got away with just a couple of patches on the rear end but I ended up welding in numerous small patches on the front floors but I was being really picky and wanted a totally rust free car....

Evaluate under 'Audrey' for us please!

Hi Mate The best bet to start off with is to get it as high as you can off the floor (safely) and assess it first. The heat shields come off fairly easily (22 or 24mm socket I think) and will give you lots more access. Then you can have a good look around to see if you need to take off the exhaust a...

Evaluate under 'Audrey' for us please!

Hi Mate Just a few things before you start this. I just had a quick look at YOG's post (Rick) and it was a few years ago on a good condition car so don't expect your car to be as good as his. If you want to do it properly you need to take off the tank, exhaust system and heat shields and maybe the r...

Good work as per usual Dan. By the way I just ordered a LHS floor strengthener from Ford so there are still some left in Germany but don't leave it too long if you haven't bought one (two?) yet.

Ayup Rob
You saved me a message :-) I'm not sure if sikaflex is the same as is not that more of a glue? Anyway good to know we're sharing stuff to cut costs.

Hi James I did pass that info on to Rob but I'll refresh his memory tomorrow so thanks for that. As for the sealant, it's not rubberised and it's Wood Autos own brand but I can't tell you what it is as I've taped over it. I bought it for Andrews Ka to seal all the leaky joints but we didn't use it a...

Well, not done much over the last three days as it's been too bloody hot but the other day I managed to clean up the area on the floor strengthener that I spotted about a month ago (the rubberised underseal had just cracked open to reveal rust). http://i1299.photobucket.com/albums/ag62/tuonokid/1606...

Hi Richard I thought you would have had all the welding done by now but I'll say the same to you as I said before. If it's getting FRP rear wings get new sills fitted and there will be work needed on the inner sills that you just can't see until the old sills are cut off. Good luck with finding a go...

I finally managed to get the drivers electric Recaro seat working the other day and it was a lot easier than I thought. When I'd stripped the silver scrapper down I took the plugs and lead for the electric seat out of that and noticed that the live was fed from the cluster of permanently live red wi...

They don't look too bad at all. The mounting for the brake hose is always rusty but it looks like the flange at the bottom front of the wheel arch is fairly sound as well but we could have done with a forward shot into the bottom front arch where it joins the outer sill/wing. Just check now where th...

Yeah let's hope it's ok. Usually the worst ones I've seen are really crusty and rotted out at the front, bottom of the rear wheel arches where there's a proper flange going back into the wheelarch. If it looks solid around there it may be ok.

Anything that is rotted within 300mm of the rear beam mount is a possible MOT failure and seems to be the number one cause of Pumas being sold without MOTs. It includes several panels such as inner/outer sills, inner and outer wheel arches and the rear chassis rails. Outer sills are available as new...

Hi Mate It's hard to tell from those photos but photo 7 down looks to be showing a bit of serious rust between the chassis rail and the inner arch bottom. Have you got some photos around the rear beam mount and also in the rear inner arches with the carpets removed? They will give a better idea of h...

Hi Richard Glad to hear you cracked it :-) . No I didn't use any heat proofing I just used split tubing and routed the cables well away from the exhaust. As there are no mounting points for the cables underneath I drilled the chassis rail and used a mounting that you can thread cable ties through so...
