Nice work! That's the second time in a week I've seen that stereo come up, what's it like?

Also never heard of the wheels in 16!

Thanks red! I haven't retrofitted the unit yet but i will post some feedback once installed. In the past, Fitted one 9000VNR in other Puma, looks good and pretty but i heard that the quality on this Blaupunkt its pretty, pretty good!

About the wheels me neither! They are MiM Wheels, 16x7.5j, same model as FRK/FRP and the only difference is that they used to have some center caps by the looks of it!

I'm fairly sure you could find the centres to fit in it and get some Ford gel stickers.

Alright, started to do some work on the Puma in these days.

Finally fitted for good the 300mm brake conversion with a fresh rebuild kit for the calipers, new discs, pads and brake hoses.

Time to start doing some work at the back, new brake lines for both sides.
Image

Both brake lines fitted along with new brake hoses and new discs and pads aswell.

Hello !

You need a specific blackpaunt/ford cd to use the GPS, and a gps antena,


i had the same idea some time ago, but i have forget it,
unfortunaly it's not very functionnal, a classic 6000cd with a yatour or other sd/mp3/aux adaptator is more useful

for the gps, i think the best option is a phone with an good app ...
or a radio with android to download a good gps app (but very expensive)


PS: i like your work on the interior, very original :thumbs:

I really do like your car and I really do appreciate the time and effort put into it, but IMHO the car is to low. You should rise it a bit.... :wink:
