Fuel tank woes - suggestions?

Out of interest where did the tank fail? Mine looked a bit crusty around the rear end so I've treated it for now to stop it getting any worse.

Rusty arches should I purchase

If/when the arches perforate that will be an MoT fail (sharp edges on bodywork) so they will need doing sooner or later. I had one side of mine done (only one side rotted for some reason) among other work. I think maybe the arch on its own would have been in the order of £300, the hard bit is gettin...

At what cost??

I'm nearly £4k in the hole on mine now, but it is future-proofed to some extent. It'll be a while if the car's value ever approaches what I've spent on it! However I'm negotiating renting a garage for the winter to keep the worst of the elements at bay, to try and make it last a bit longer and keep ...

4-2-1 & remap on std cams and air

I'd like some tips/advice on where to go to get a remap, pretty much same setup - standard except for 4-2-1 manifold. Although I have DIVE ecu with 2 lambda sensors.

Occasional low rumble from the front from after the strut brace was fitted - I only mention that as it was not there before I fitted it Mine did this. It was the gearbox fouling on the strut brace. If it helps you or the new owner, you need to jack the car up, then use bottle jack/bit of wood to ja...

Good luck. It's a voyage of discovery! Sills are available... sort of. Search for my thread about the work I had done, which was similar to your list.

Have you left a connector undone? Easily done. The fault may well be in the clock spring, these can be replaced without changing the steering wheel. There's a thread on here from when I did mine. If you really want to disable air bag light you'll need to remove instrument panel and take out LED/bulb...

engine temperature high

I'd guess fan relays are one unit. I'd also bet they are in engine bay fuse box. A.C. should operate fan by default even if engine is cold, to draw air through condenser. It sounds like the stall isn't being caused by the A.C. - I would guess air leak. Also the overheat: could be dodgy temp sensor i...

New Model Ford Puma coming December 2019

I'm not a fan of SUVs in general but this new Puma doesn't look too bad to me, like a baby Jag E-Pace. I'm sure it'll do quite well. I too am confused a bit by the plethora of SUVs on offer from Ford - not only is there the Ecosport, Kuga and Edge as mentioned by Red, but you've also got Fiesta 'Act...

Hopefully you've done it, it's quite rewarding repairing faults on your own car. I would of thought you could do the door cards yourself too.

You will find more joys as time goes on I expect. Mine was a bit scabby underneath so I wire brushed the worst of the rust off and re-treated/painted to stop it getting any worse (hopefully).
