Looking good!

This thread has inspired me to mod the C2 again. Had an idea ordered the parts, just got to get round to doing it.

I miss the days of looking for rust :lol:

Your knob looks in better condition than mine, all was fine until I got married and it started getting worn down (tungsten carbide wedding ring).

Have also ordered some wind deflectors ;)

Also have 2 replacement front wings in the garage - have brought some anti rust primer and stonechip to coat the inside of the wing with to stop them rotting
(drivers side is badly dented and passenger side is rotten! will get replacement 1700 decals)

Does need 2 arches, rear could do with being lower, seat repair......

After ford fair the puma is coming off the road - It's just been treated to a new headunit :lol:

Will become a project car and some of the plans are listed below although these may or may not change

- Lower Strut Brace
- Possible Upper Strut Braces front and rear
- Paint plastic engine cover yellow
- Change the front wings
- Get the rear arches sorted out
- Decent Brakes
- Uprate the speakers possibly a sub
- Give the car a good mop and see what the paint is like as I can't afford or want to respray the car due to cost
- Some more rust proofing
- Would like a Oil Pressure Gauge and Oil Temperature Gauge in a pod
- Service
- Get drivers recaro repaired
- Look at suspension kits or springs as the current one sits far to high on the back :lol:

-----------------

The replacement (work have blocked photobucket so no pics - add me on facebook (Adam Meilack) to see photos until I can get some on here

Won't be on the road until next week when the puma is retired from daily duties but on the drive home it is so smooth and sounds amazing :D

Post subject:  Re: Millennium Puma #188 - "The Canary" - New Pics/Update 29

parts have been gathering for the puma.......

I have anti rust primered the front wings - they need fitting :lol:
have front lower strut brace and rear upper strut brace that need fitting
sophie is buying me the front upper strut brace next month
Do want some new suspension so it actually looks lower :lol:

bloody photobucket is blocked at work :doh: :lolz:

But still needs parts fitting :lolz:

Author:  meilack [ Tue Dec 20, 2016 8:52 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Millennium Puma #188 - "The Canary" - New Pics/Update 29

current thoughts are to strip the rear of the puma out - get some decent suspension so the back is lower :lol: - put some speakers in boxes behind front seats - fit strut braces - modify airbox from current smashed out bottom look - change wings
