Lowest Mileage Minter? My New Project.....

Apparently it is a red one, possibly 98 or 99 and lives in Ayr, which is handy because that is just 16 miles from me, gotta go looking :grin:

I hope this was nobody here

Those two truckers right at the start were a bit slow, could have stopped it just after the roundabout, impressive acceleration from the cop car though from the start and love the american style attempted spin from the second cop car, very risky over here

Lowest Mileage Minter? My New Project.....

Not sure if this will beat it or not as purely word of mouth A mechanic friend knows of an early Puma, possibly a 98, in Scotland that has only ever been out of the garage for its yearly MOT, then back into storage again, seems as though it has never yet reached its first service mileage!! Going dig...

Head Light Adjustment - FAILED MOT

Have just been through the new regs for the MOT, no mention of a fail for non working adjusters (of any sort) but.....if aim of dipped beam is incorrect it will fail, so once you have fitted/sorted new adjusters it will pass so long as the aim is correct. If your MOT station is saying otherwise, tak...

Head Light Adjustment - FAILED MOT

i would think if the manual adjusters have stripped their threads you should be able to simply replace those, I would imagine if they are not available new someone on here will have some kicking around. i wouldn't worry too much about the electric adjusters because as long as you can manually line u...

adjusting door height

That is indeed a very old thread! regarding drilling/tapping, if you could access from inside the wheel arch (and I have not looked so no idea) would you need to tap anything? could you not simply bolt the hinge and the new backing plate together? effectively sandwiching the already strengthened are...

Running 205/50/15 boots

Sounds good, just remember the faster you go with that set up the slower the speedo will read, nothing drastic but 70mph on the clock could actually be around 74/75mph And if it helps it feel a little less stressed at speed then it is good, personally I enjoy the fact that at 55/60mph in top gear al...

Newbie! Hello from Hertfordshire - now on my second puma!

welcome to the site and hope you enjoy your second Puma, having left Hertfordshire over 30 years ago for the wilds of Scotland are you sure the car feels slower? or is it just the amount of traffic down there now simply prevents you from getting out of 2nd gear :grin:
