Bucket Seat Mounting

The subframe cannot be removed from original puma seats. I've just fitted a Sparco one of a kind Puma Ford Racing seat to my 2001 Puma. I had to remove the seat belt tensioner using a 45/50 torx socket and fit it to the new subframe which I got from Demon Tweeks, then had to get top hat risers to fi...

I have just bought a yellow Puma.

Hey I'm in Cornwall with a red 1.7 and part of Camel Vale motor club. I've got coilovers on it at the moment but putting it back on standard struts as it's too hard a ride on these ol Cornish roads. Is this Milly from Tintagel by any chance? I've also fitted yellow Samco coolat kit under the bonnet ...

Hi from Cornwall with 2 reds

So MOT time came and it's been off the road since, it's the first time in its life to fail and on the dreaded corrosion, so now I have two rusty Pumas sitting on my drive. The braided hoses never arrived or were available and the springs are sitting in my loft. I fitted the Samcos and replaced the r...

You rust be joking...

My other 'road' Puma that I love deeply I have got running 100% after buying it with oil and coolant issues. Never failed an mot in 18 years until now, on bloody...

Hi from Cornwall with 2 reds

Cheers guys, as much as I'd love more, I'm finding it a bit expensive and addictive to bling up my 51 red, added some yellow Samco coolant hoses at the weekend, got some springs and standard shocks to replace the coilovers and have some gold braided brake hoses which still haven't turned up after tw...

Hi from Cornwall with 2 reds

Funny you should say, I'm swapping the alloys around, and... if I had the space and a missus who liked animals I would have a Puma in every colour, or just start collecting them, there is a silver one I have my eye on.. :-P

Hi from Cornwall with 2 reds

As the title suggests, I am in Cornwall and have two Red Puma 1.7. One is T reg 1999 which I am modding to rally, it's quite a romantic story... i owned a T reg 1.7 back in 2016 but it died, whilst owning it I noticed another red in the village, we then started flashing our lights and waving when we...
