New Puma Owner

Welcome Philip! Looks like a clean example you found! Rust will always be a problem on Puma's, so good to hear you are getting that sorted.

It's a coded colour. It's RAL5015 named 'Sky Blue' from the RAL-chart

Got news.. sadly failed the MOT due to some BS. There was a brake balance difference on the rear. Never noticed anything of that, but whatever. Decided to let the garage fix it, but it will be done after the weekend.

Genuinely a bit upset.. :(

Happy to say that everything is painted now and back together. Everything fits as it should and closes as it should. Really happy with how the body lines on the rear bumper came out. Was a bit worried about this considering the new panel that got welded in. But turned out really good! https://i.imgu...

Back with another update. Did a lot over the past two weeks. Managed to paint all the inside pieces such as the bonnet and tailgate. Also primed the rest with a filler primer and sanded it back with 1000 grit ready for the blue basecoat. Which will hopefully happen this weekend :) Here are the photo...

You could perhaps use Imgur or Flickr. Imgur works really easy, even better than photobucket if I say so myself.

Hi Sinisa, he MIG'd the spotwelds that I drilled out. So it is welded how it originally was.

Pickup the car from the welder yesterday. He truly didn't lie about it being not a lot of work. He delivered amazing work and everything seems to fit how it should be. Even the floor is near perfect flat, you wouldn't even notice that the floor has ever been dented before. You can't even see that it...

Brought the Puma to the welder yesterday. He said that it isn't a lot of work to get the panel back in, so I hope that it will be finished next week or the week after! :)

SLEEMAN wrote:Qr Bbpost bloody hell glad you are fixing it! is that the nitrous blue or bragger blue?

It's actually just a colour from the RAL-chart. It's RAL5015 'Sky Blue'. Very close to Nitrous Blue, except that it is a solid colour and not a pearl/metallic based paint.

Managed to drill out the leftover spotwelds to make it a complete weld-in panel. Was not a pleasant job to do but will end up saving me quite a lot in the long run.

Just a quick update here. Removed the ´dented´ panel from my Puma. Was a tedious job considering the amount of spotwelds. Also managed to remove the whole rear section of the parts Puma. http://i.imgur.com/ifu5jk4.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Dw1BNye.jpg Tomorrow the welder is coming to my place and we di...

Been a while since I updated my project. This was due to something that accured two months ago. Two months ago I got involved in an accident with my Puma. Causing mostly damage to the rear end :-( At first it seemed like nothing was wrong. Car drove fine as well. http://i.imgur.com/xx3K6v9.jpg Took ...

I would wrap the roof and find a good replacement bonnet in the same colour.
