My Aubergine shell

As per my post in my project thread. The aubergine shell is now £50 including bumpers. Need gone asap now.

It's in Gatwick.

Pic is in my project thread, can get others if required.

It's converted for cable shift for MTX boxes but could be adapted back.

My Puma 1.7, more than a year on (A works in progress)

Nice brackets there Barry.

I have found the same with my new silver one.. rust at the back, sills etc. Not much at the front. Various small holes in the floor.

Wow Ben! That is really something. Just was thinking about your project the other day and how a Jag V6 might suit it :wink: If I hadn't invested so much time and money into the Mk1 FRS engine I may have gone a different route, but it will still more more than sufficient and it's standard mounting p...

Hi Stu,

Perhaps you could do away with the roll bar all together to save yet more weight.

The anti-roll can be built into the spring rates. Depending on the lb rating of the springs you're running it may not be doing anything anyway.

Damp Garage

This may help - I'm not sure.. Dan has a timber frame garage, which we insulated - walls and ceiling. Floor is concrete, painted. The door is a Hormann insulated sectional door with seals. In the winter we run a dehumidifier 24/7. The end result - we keep bare sheet metal in there that does not rust...

Hi Ben The power steering will be too much without an engine to weigh it down, you'll get the full feel of the road without it and less to go wrong (look at the length of hoses you'd need).

358728 Ben, just seen the number plate of your donor Puma. It's not from the Car People in Yorkshire originally is it? Back in the day I used to go out with a girl who had a silver Y reg Puma ending HVY... And rusty or not, that abergine she'll still looks stunning colour wise. Wish someone would g...

FRP #32 - Let's go back to the start...

Bit too late to the party here... but

Can't understand why you had so many problems. I used an M16 x 1.5 AN6 Adaptor into mine, wound it all the way down with some Loctite 5400 thread sealant. Never had any problems :?

Here's where I'm at, with a little more progress on the Silver one. Seats and carpet out. Started poking around with the screwdriver and there are several holes, I'm not surprised mind, worst of it is round the rear arches and rear sills which is normal. The areas on the floor are normal too, it's w...

So is your foot better now Stu?

Congrats on the house buying though :ok:

Good luck with catching the Frenchies. It's a tall order without more power but I hope you do it.

358583 Aubergene all the way then. Such a gorgeous colour, love the fact it's almost black until the sun hits it This was my initial thought.. 358586 I think you should go for Magnum Grey then. I also really dig the Medium Steel Blue that's a factory colour on Puma's. Nitrous Blue should look reall...

Sorry guys, forgot to say - the choice is between Aubergine or Magnum grey :lol:

The inside will either silver or white.

Nissan nightshade is like Ford Aubgerine I see.

Would Nitrous blue on a Puma work do you think?

Ethanol fuels also produces more power. However, you need a fuel pump that's suitable for a start.

Not heard about it coming to the pumps though?!
