I like Wild.E's idea. I would probably go further and have the background in black as well as you've mentioned, "Puma" in white, and the number in Ford colours. Maybe too busy for some but think it would make a nice "centre piece" if the rest if the bay is fairly neutral (black and metal or something).

I got one of these kits for my puma, and had the same issues with holes, then cracks started to appear. I took it into a local body shop for advice and a price to fit and paint the whole kit, he point blank refused to touch the panels due to quality issues. I got rid and decided to keep my car standard, well for the moment at least. I would be very interested on how the rear pannels go on and what else needs to be done. Good luck with your pannels, hope you get them on and painted. Will look great when its finished.

Cartman can you help I'm trying to fit my alternator back on after fitting the manifold but can't seem to get a socket at the last bolt at the front the one that's sandwiched in between the alternator and the pipes for the manifold driving me up the wall seems impossible .

When I was refurbishing my alternator I took the light off and did it through the light opening using a ratchet and the angled addition (don't know the name in English, you know what it is, the same thing like CV joint on car). Granted, I don't have FRP inlet…. Anyway, taking the light off should give you some space.
