The brace comes off the lower arm bolts so spacers I don't think would work.

A dent would :-)

Not sure how it would effect its structural integrity

From a cluttered heap

The puma has decided to start welling up recently - with both headlights getting quite misty.

Pulled them both off tonight (3 bolt job) and brought them in the house. Idea is to dry them out inside then hopefully that will avoid issues later on.

Took the covers off and bulbs out and stuck them on the radiator over night.

I did it quietly so hopefully missus Moog won't notice.

That's my standard method of drying out car parts and trainers ^^

Is it worth banging a couple of holes in the bottom of the lights, let the moisture out? I've had to do this in the past, not on a Puma mind..

They have little hoses at the bottom I think for that reason. Not sure how well they work mind

Might need to do the rears as they have the same issue.
