Hi Ya'll 

 

Would a Ford Puma bonnet fit onto a fiesta mk5, without any time consuming alterations?

I believe the bonnets wont fit, full stop. They are different sized engine bays as I recall correctly...

 

why do you want to replace the bonnet of all things?

I dunno to be honest a good solid base to start, get the right bonnet then i know what kits will look good on the skirts and bumpers, insted of putting the kits on then struggling to find the right bonnet and ruin the whole thing,

 

Any one got any suggestions?

If I remember rightly a Puma was normally fitted with a V6, so the engine bay was wider and longer, so you would have to modify it heavily to get it to fit...

I thought the Puma had 1.4, 1.6, 1.7 four cylinder engines and no v6.

 

The mighty Cougar had a v6 :P
