RIP The Lady

RIP The Lady

£40 for the spray and pay another £60 to get it on a ramp and sprayed!

Off-road Puma advice

One thing to think about is the normal position of the spare wheel carrier, if your underside metal doesn't cover it then your fine (as it drops down). What about adding a pole so that another wheel or two (Such as a threaded pole, so that the extra wheels come out via the boot and then drop down th...

These might help/cheaper:
