NO, i used my little hands :)

So that is a simple plastic... kinda ugly worked on, on the arch not the best way to put on but!, it holds ok. It has double adhesive on the front and back and you need to put in two piece of metal in the window...

Here is the link:
http://www.e-heko.com/en/Instrukcja-mon ... iewek.html

The little metal piece in the end goes in in front and in the back... to push out the seal otherwise your window will be tilted :)

I'll push tomorrow the car for around 110km/h and report back :)

Well i just was cruising around 90km/h... it is fine...

As TGPlayer1 said, they don't have any groove for the arch to go in, only in front and in the back... bad design from Ford.

I'll get some double side tape to stick it on here and there and report back.

As it comes, it kinda wobbles out when rolling up the windows.

The problem is that the actual U shape in the window arch is not deep enough :(

That mesh grille looks great, got some laying around here aswell and want to tackle the mod too. Could you explain how you did it with fitting and such, or possibly if you found a guide, link it to me? Thanks :)

DSC_0304.jpg


also ordered a batch of these:
$(KGrHqZ,!qYFDkiV!BvSBQ9+Hpht0w~~60_12.JPG


I hope they will be ok :)

in the meantime i attached my camera to the windshield with double sided tape.

Since I put on motul i observed a little oil burning... so after two tanks of fuel eaten, i checked the oil... well it's in the max... actually a little bit over... 1-2mm only... Oil consumption back on track. All fine...

Still waiting for my front spacers...

In the meantime broken antenna... we will remove it and fill the hole... that's it... no more toy car antenna on... i hate it :)

The Pro-X stuff isn't adding much, but the new spots look much better than the original ones, at least they look deliberate and not like patches of primer thrown on.

If you really do have to have stickers, I still think you'd be better off going for lines or curve shapes that emphasise the original lines of the Puma. Spots/camouflage stuff is usually only used to break up really dull uninteresting areas...which the Puma doesn't actually have.

Btw love the new mesh grille, looks great!

Here you go - viewtopic.php?p=348914#p348914

You could try that, get some proper mesh, i.e. not some old chicken wire, and spray it up green to match your callipers and see how it looks. If it doesn't work, then just spray it up in matt black or something. You can experiment with different effects (I used to, don't any more) as much as you like, so long as you can put it back as it was if it doesn't work out.

Yeah the lower part i love! <3

But for the upper, i was thinking of getting a woman stocking, put on the actual one and mold myself a nice little holder from fiberglass and after that just put mesh in :) that is money :) and i don't have money for that now :D

Well well well... what i did today... let me give you some hints:
- glass fiber putty green one :D 1KG!
- pop the hood!
- little black plastic held by two screws...

so i did this:
WP_20160411_16_13_05_Pro.jpg


than... get the well known masking tape... put two layers just to be sure... and mark with fiberglass putty:
WP_20160411_16_20_08_Pro.jpg


than go home and start mastering:
IMG-20160412-WA0002.jpg


Cut out ONLY the interior plastics... and add the two marks/molds made before and complete with fiberglass putty:
WP_20160412_16_23_24_Pro.jpg


Getting there:
WP_20160412_17_43_18_Pro.jpg


And finally:
WP_20160412_19_19_46_Pro.jpg


I am still thinking about removing the whole badge or not... what do you think?

Leave it in, I reckon, as it gives a central focus.

Design-wise, the Puma is only weak in one area - head on. 3/4 view from the front, side view, 3/4 view rear and rear view are all, er, perfect. But the front head on has no focus - that top grille meshed and coloured up and a badge on it will pull the eye into the centre and make it a point of interest. It's possible that even a badge/mascot on the front of the bonnet itself would also help, but that would require experiment.

Btw the bottom grille? - will look much better in mesh, but leave that black. I've seen where people have sprayed up that lower grille in colours and it just doesn't visually work. It also looks desperate, in an attention seeking sort of way.

well i cut out the piece, but possible i stuck it back or add another funny whatever... :D something that reminds of green... for now... no idea... maybe gummy bear:

I'll see later on... waiting for the black mesh to arrive...


for the lower part... I'll do a mesh too, I'll see if i can mold something around... if not I will get a long black AWG 10 cable, cut in half, and place on the border and put in the mesh... after that i'll reinforce it with some splitter rods :D muhahahha
