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

It looks like carbon illusion's the one Rob but do you think it's do-able with the top and bottom of a slat being wider than the gap between them?

Hi Rob
I don't celebrate Birthdays anymore now I'm an old git but thanks for the offer on the sandpaper :-)
Ooh if you're still reading this do you think a Puma rad grill is a good candidate for dipping?

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

Hi Nick Aye it's good to have 2 jacks now as sometimes it's hard to jack the whole front of the car and get it safe on axle stands as when one side is supported it tends to move when the other side is jacked. It used to be easy on rear drive cars as you had a cross member at the front and you could ...

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

Cheers Tyler :-) I can't see any problem with having coilovers on the front and normal struts on the back as long as the spring and damper rates match each other as the coilovers are just struts with adjustable spring platforms. I haven't had the chance to do any more driving with mine as I'm not ta...

Dedicated Track Car Progress Thread

Hi Stu I've been there to watch the Westfield speed series and at the same time there must have been a TVR sprint as well. It was a real hoot watching the more modern high powered TVRs trying to make it around especially where we were standing (the bottom 180 deg bend). I can't imagine how difficult...

Newbie - Chassis corrosion

If you want a second opinion send the photos to me but I have a feeling that stuvy will be right as once the rot settles in around the rear of the sills/rear beam mount repairs are almost impossible because there are so many structural panels that rot and also meet up at the same location. In fact i...

Boot wont open with the key

Hi Colin If I was you I'd check the battery leads and the starter motor leads to make sure they are fine and making good contact and go on from there. If the starter motor is on it's way out it can start clicking on the solenoid before it completely fails so if it refuses to start again have the bon...

You're welcome Colin. If you can't find a supplier for a new boot solenoid try Ian G on here.

Hi Colin
Mine was the same, replace the boot lid solenoid and all will be well. Trouble is it's a rear bumper off to get at the bolts for the solenoid. If you're keeping the car I've done a mod on my project thread which means I can take off the solenoid now without removing the bumper.

Possible wheel bearing issue

Hi It could be a number of things from your description ie inner driveshaft bearing, cv joint so rather than trying to give an estimate I would say your best bet is to take it to a TRUSTED local garage have them take a look and give you an estimate.

Cheers Rob. No plans to fit coilovers to the rear as the rears not bad and I'm too tight to shell out for new ones. The front is a revelation after the cheapo lowering springs though, although I think you know that already. Cheers Richard. I've had Recaros before on my MK2 RS2000 and they are some o...
