My Puma Thunder

Post by Crackintackle » Mon Oct 28, 2019 10:58 am

Good morning all!
I have had my 51 plate Thunder from new and just hit 80,000. Despite husband telling me to get a new car, I want to keep the Puma. However, I want to get some non mechanical bits done on it - New Steering Wheel - New headlights (these are as dull as ditchwater) - Little bit of Re-stiching to drivers door - does anyone know a place in Essex that does this sort of thing - Any advice you can give me would be appreciated. Many thanks.

Restore the headlamps yourself, plenty of kits in the market to do this. Then get a set of up-rated bulbs.
