Indeed.* I seem to recall someone called 'Seven of Nine' with some fondness. Make it so.

Yep, I do. It's good to see the level of detail and care going into this already. If the rest of the project is going to be to this standard, as I'm sure it will be, then this Puma is going to be quite something when it's all done.

We like. :-)

Puma cut out today during drive

Just by elimination of other variables you can tell this is probably the fuel filter. The noise was behind and there's not much engine stopping stuff behind you . It could have been the fuel pump, except that it worked the following day, etc. No, fuel filter and and a 'bung' of water in the filter w...

The transponder in the key is non-volatile memory i.e. ROM and needs no power (like a phone SIM card). The key battery is only needed for the door remote side, which is volatile memory, i.e. ...

367592 I think that PUM4A one will be hanging around for a while I think so, a numberplate with the model of your car on it makes no sense to me. A numberplate with your own name on it makes much more sense, but in reality the only advantage even then is that staff in petrol stations and shops call...

Frp inlet manifold

Strikes me that people first need to know who the manufacturer is. Otherwise, they could end up with pattern parts.

Re-tooling, correct metallurgy and tolerance specs are not cheap processes, you know. ;)

It's only a bad car park prang, not a death in the family. There's nothing there that can't be fixed if James wants to.
