Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

IMO forget the Tipo Sedi wheels... totally wrong for the car in terms of both size and style. Didn't you have some lovely new Bravo Abarth wheels that you considered and then (wisely) sold on? As discussed previously the 14" alloys and tyres you have on it now are on the limit of what was authentic and practical for a Mk1 Punto, and you've admitted that you struggle with the steering.

Personally I'd prefer to see your immaculate original wheels and trims back on the car... the 5-door ELX was never sporty and it's understated image should be appreciated. It's a reminder of a simpler time when steel wheels with smooth trims was the sensible way to go for most cars, without everything being expected to come with big wide alloys and rubber-band tyres...

Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx



The majority of the snow has gone, so took the opportunity today to get the cover off and let it run for a bit, as well as my neighbours 500 who is away for a month.

Happy to report that my battery gadget I bought is working a treat and after 4 weeks of sitting in the drive in -temperatures, the car started no bother.

Moved it up and down the drive to free off the brakes. Roll on the dry weather

Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

Agree with Bluejohn about the wheels - small steelies and plastic covers are the way to go (weigh less than alloys too - go figure!). Car needs as little unsprung weight as possible, and your steelies and mint covers provide that!

Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

Bought these from Italy as mine is missing them.



Not sure if they will arrive or not but it says they will post worldwide.
Fingers crossed

Need to work out exactly where they go on the glass

Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

Just trying to give my car back all the decals it was wearing from the factory before a valeter got his hands on it and peeled them all off.

Think this is the last ones I need.

That would make sense. Both my old mk2b and current Grande have national security register stickers in the bottom corner of the windows near the B-pillar.
