Round 75W 15cm in the front and ovals in the rear from ManiacSound 170W 6 "x 9".

I bought a set of FK Automotive alloys 17 " rear 8j and 7,5j front , a lady with a focus II that no longer wished them and I quote:" They shook me too much. ".. ...
S1 Evo tires HANKOOK 215/40/17 rear and 205/40 / 17 front

Finally after 20+ hours of work they came out pretty good, do not recommend DIY if you DO NOT have a sandblaster and paint gun ... I struggled with sandpaper I and tube paint

Hi
You have been busy. :-)
Paint looks to be Imperial Blue so that Puma was a special edition, the seats being leather suggest that but they don't have the piping for the Puma SE model which was available in Europe. I guess it might be Melina blue and it is camera light confusing the colour.
Do keep an eye on your carpet liner in the front wheel arches and tyres too.
!7" inch wheels do not always fit the Puma without causing rubbbings issues exposing in damage and slicing to the front tyres.
The inner seam inside the front wheel arches can be sharp and very badly damage tyres.

Whzt are you working on next?
searching is fruitful | I'm a sponge not a mechanic | The Wiki is cool, please do check there if stuck with a Puma problem whilst waiting for a reply | For the Puma fan this read 'The Inside Story Book' is very nice to own link coming soon

Cheers Happy-kat, Yes you are right...i did cut my tyers (but removed the lip from the inside arch) got 215/45/17' on it nowPosted Image
The paint was Imperial Blue, had the sticker on the inside of the rear left wheelwell , and carpet is long Gone!
I tried to post all the pictures from the build here, but after 20pics the website said that that type of photo adress is not permited


SO i will just post my Thread from Club Ford Romania (Because we love Fords here!)
