Paul's Silver Puma

Hi Alex, So I think this depends which rear top weight things you have but what I did was back the spring perch right off put the strut together with the top mount and popped the nut on but only to hold it together. Then put it on the car making sure to line the notch on the top mount up with the cu...

Paul's Silver Puma

I haven't really jumped on the brakes to fully try them, just been driving around normally letting everything settle in for now but immediately they felt better than before. I did have 240mm brakes, old fluid and probably original brake pads before so would hope to have noticed the jump up to 280mm ...

Paul's Silver Puma

Good news a 100% Puma related post…… Front struts have gone back on the car with new SKF bearings. Binding/squeaking suspension noise 100% cured. Not sure what was up with the Febi Bilstein bearings as they were brand new but the replacements did the trick. ABS…… yup got that working to. Bit of an o...

Paul's Silver Puma

So another update, sort of. Quite a bit has changed but also not at the same time. Part of my plan with the Puma was to keep it road friendly with a track bias as the plan was to sell the Mini and run it as the only car whilst I saved for a Megane RS275. Maybe not to everyone’s taste (insert obligat...

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

Keep up the good work then. She looks great, especially when battling a colour like yours. Most cars of this age have 'gone' off a little by now and looking flat or pink ish but as I say yours looks really bright and glossy. Not familiar with the wheel brand but they look nice and a little bit diffe...

Paul's Silver Puma

So a little ish update. Everything is on the car now but I have a few niggles to iron out. 1) It sounds like the front left caliper is dragging a bit when pulling off. Not sure what it is or why so need to investigate that. 2) When applying steering lock the front suspension sounds like the springs ...

She is a very good looking Puma isn't she?

Good stance, nice wheels (what are they if I may ask?) and decent paint condition with good gloss. It always looks like you have thrown a bucket of water over it and its soaking wet its that good.

Paul's Silver Puma

So little update following on from the last. Basically just stripped out the rear seats, door cards and seatbelts ready for the rear suspension change. Done it plenty of times before so no big deal really with everything coming apart nicely. No broken clips which is a bit of a result. Once I get a b...

Those wheels look familiar, good job.
Be nice to see you do the rear disc conversion when you get around to it
hmmm I wonder why...... :-D. I should have it all fitted up over the next week and a bit so will give some feedback then. Fingers crossed it all works as planned.

So part collection is complete. I now have everything I need for a full suspension refresh, brakes overhaul and a few choice upgrades as well. The aim was to use good quality parts throughout and build a really solid foundation for track use but without compromising tooooo much on road use. My milea...

Any idea what the damage is for one of those GBS Escorts? One of if not my all time favourite car in wide arch form. Looks awesome!!

As does your Puma of course :ok: . Stance looks really nice with those wheels on it.

No big update since the last one really. Interior still needs a good clean but gave it a quick tidy up. I will strip all the seats out and clean it properly when the rear interior comes out for the suspension rebuild and FRP seats going in. On that front, parts are coming together nicely. 95% there ...

So little update after the long weekend. Managed to finish up the machine polishing. Not sure if the pictures really show much difference buts its hugely noticeable in person with a much clearer and crisp shine to the paint. Aerial was pretty brittle at the bottom and fell apart when I removed it to...

Thanks Folks. She does seem like a really nice car that just needs tidying up a little. Managed to make a start on polishing the car last weekend (Pictures to follow). It is already a noticeable improvement to the car. Lots of little scuffs have been removed and generally car looks much brighter and...

Set or individual 9 spoke or thunder wheels in good condition. Straight with no previous repairs.
Closer to Cheltenham the better.

May consider other wheels so long as they fit over ST150 brakes without spacers
