Bought this as a cheap Ford to run-around in for a few years

A heads up of the car

2000 Ford Puma Millenium limited edition 1.7
81k miles
Zinc Yellow Paint
Leather recaro interior
Heated Front and Rear Screens
Air Con
CD
RCL
Leccy windows

Bought the car cheap cause of the usual ford puma problems, which are some arch rust some wear on the drivers seat, bit of an exhaust leak and probably not been serviced for a while, but its something different from the norm

Anyway here is said car





You can probably see the tape on the seat, woopy do lol

One of the mirrors was a boggo job, so I got a panther black one put on to match up the other



Ive performed a service on the car for now, oil filter and sump plugs were a pain but were persuaded and new items fitted after an engine flush. All new helix oil on offer gone in with new fuel filter and new spark plugs, which was interesting.
The cam cover has obviously been leaking (common fault) spark plug are had quite a bit of oil in so cleaned this out at the same time, that is after drilling the bolts for the engine cover which had been done up stupid tight so rounded off when trying to remove :thumbsup:


Oil soaked up


Old vs new + oil lol


During service


Stupid button bolts had to be drilled :( £35 for ford replacements, B&Q will be £5 :thumbsup:


Off until said bolts are bought and other plans underway

Oh and got this problem thanks to some bad roads heading home, got a leg coming Monday to swap this out :bs:


Anyway, next will be timing belt, water pump, crankshaft oil seal and rocker cover sealant and gasket

After that sort the exhaust out ready for MOT and get it all waxoyled and arch liners sorted

separate from this probably turn the wheels grey or black, derestrict the airbox and replace for a panel filter

Then just run it, maybe get the seat fixed lol

They're good seats, worth a pretty penny too.
If you get rid of it and break it i'll probably take the engine :P you'll make your money back on the seats and engine, these are always a good investment in that respect.

They're also strangely nice looking cars even though they're bright yellow :lol:

An update,

I'm on my annual leave now, early I know but my slot in the yearly leave set for us , so im using some of the time on the car to get it upto scratch

Ive had a few bits through the mail to add to the stock of parts I have, for instance new bushes, and a new clutch was £40 so seemed rude not to seeing as it is hasn't been replaced!





Also received a new exhaust system and Cat for my old rusty one, which had to be part hammered and part disc cutted off as the nuts (tension) were beyond any use!
The new exhaust is only Aluminiumised Steel not surprising as it was so cheap, but incorporates a race tube, and ive coated it a few times in heat tape to help stop it rusting as quickly!



One exhaustless car


The underneath, I've seen worse but you can probably see the OSR chassis and body is worse than the rest, ive set about sanding all the rust down that I can get to and kill rusting bad areas and then painting with either spray around certain parts, and/or hammerite waxoyl around the rest, especially the arches to hopefully stop anymore rust for a while, the arch liners were all but knackered, and im half tempted to not save them and just chuck them away, ill see how I feel!

Before



Old shocks off


After





Drums sanded down



Painted



Also have done 1 of the wheels to see how I got on with it, not done to bad for my own work!








And on the car



Also The new shock kit, albeit a pain with no clear direction has been taking shape



Handy place for a metal attachment right over the strut mount :doh:







That is all for now! More to come in time :thumbsup:
