FRP Body kit

Make your own windows the sheets cost nothing and you can do it in no time. I'd keep the heated screen as it's so useful in damp conditions on track

Testing the water

Im tempted to sell my puma... she's a 1.7 Melina blue I have winter tyres currently fitted and the 16" multi spoke alloys to go with the car too. The arches are solid and she recently went through her mot with no advisories at all!! The interior could do with being replaced with new front seats...

Newbie - Chassis corrosion

I work in a very remote location and don't get internet on my phone finally saw the pictures and in all honesty unless the car is 100% mint and very low mileage with a solid clean interior bumpers etc I'd be looking to replace it

What are the prices of a puma in Ireland?

Twenty Years

361172 It can't be 20yrs of the Focus RS. 25yrs of Escort Cosworth yes. If Ford Fair aren't interested in celebrating 20yrs of the Puma they can ram it, I won't go. I'm not on Facebook but it appears that's where everyone is these days, most forums are dead aren't they. I won't be going on Facebook...

Typically I charge 1inch 3 pound per weld any extra I make my customers wait and see how much I need to cut out and replace

Mot time

If you do look at spending £400 on a place doing it and needing the car over night

I have worked for a chap and we used to pressure wash the full underneath of the car and with a 2 post lift leave overnight to dry or low bakenin the paint oven then rust proofer and a waxoil type product sprayed over

Mot time

My puma passed her mot today with no advisories!! So pleased!

The added bonus is she is solid as a rock on the rear and all the brake lines etc look mint so I'm over the moon

My Puma.. Maximum Track Attack!!

What budget have you set for the engine build?

Apart from thruxton and a few start/finish straights I don't see the point of the wing due to aero/mph/downforce needed to make it beneficial. Have you got lower strut braces fitted and a seam welded shell?
