Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

If you don't have tax and insurance, you need to SORN the car and not have it on a public road. Statutory off road notification (SORN) If a vehicle is off the road and not ...

One thing that appears clear, you cannot do rust treatment just once, and assume it will be OK for ever! My original rust-proofing programming was started in August 2009, and I would think, on reflection, it would be wise to repeat every 5/6 years, to be on the safe side. Now that mine is sorted und...

It's personal preference, but I have to admit that I've never been that keen on the silver panels in the Puma interior: 48420037_310978923086177_487711747122135040_n.jpg Once again, I hadn't even intended to buy any more parts at the moment, but I noticed an(other) eBay bargain which will help go w...

Head Light Adjustment - FAILED MOT

I can't believe that the manual adjusters don't work, unless they have been damaged on previous adjustment. They have 3 different ways to adjust - Flat Bladed Screwdriver, Allen Key, or Star Slot, see pics: 289 291 292 How I fixed my seized motors: https://www.projectpuma.com/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=10...
