Grande Punto Julietta - The Funky Blue 1.2


Hey folks! :)

I've been lurking for a while and posting only recently as I am now the proud owner of a charming Italian whipper snapper in the form or a 2006 1.2 8V Grande Punto. Came with just 40,000 miles and has it's full service history, all keys, all logs and receipts, documentation and was NCT'd (MOT'd) just 50KM before I got her! She's just been treated to a full winter service and new gearbox seals as well. Below is a small photoshop of some plans, I just really love the Alfa wheels but they won't fit.



After chatting to another member 'Wisey' about what I've done to the car - I decided it would be best to create a thread to show my progress since I'm going to be doing a tonne of bits and bobs over the next 2-3 months. So far I have bought / done the following:

* Fitted Chrome 501 Indicator Bulbs
* Fit Custom Fit Grande Punto Mats
* Added Aux-In Cable for Blaupunkt
* Changed to White LED Interior Bulb
* Changed to White LED Boot Bulb
* Replace the Heater Controls Bulbs
* Taxed and Insured the Beast :p

I bought Error-Free LED's for the reg place and boot but the cough up the dashboard error so I'm getting load resistors soon as you'll see below. I also change the 501's to a white LED and they looked great but gradually reduce and go off so I have a full Xenon Kit coming soon. Shame, they looked great:


Coming to me in the next weeks is...

* Yatour SD / USB / Aux Virtual CD Changer
* 501 Canbus Error-Free 13 SMD LED's
* Load Resistors for said Canbus LED's
* 2 x Red Fiat Badges for Front and Back (in case I don't debadge).
* Full Xenon Headlight Kit for the Grande Punto
* 4 x White LED Strips for Footwells / Boot
* 2 x Antislip Phone / Keys Holders for Console
* 2 x Front Fog Lights for Grande Punto

And from Micks Garage because it's the best one for OEM looks and fitting:

* Black Fiat Adjustable Armrest (soon to be Aux-In housing)

And in the New Year...

* Coilovers / springs + 205/45/R17 Alloys
* Debaging the Boot (just "Punto")
* Debaged Front Grill (and maybe black reg vinyl)
* Carbon Effect or Spray Interior Dashboard
* Full Paint Polish and Wax (to remove a few scuffs)

Finally, going to try and custom make some sort of mold / mount at the useless cup holders to hold my phone:

Maybe integrated something like this?


Thanks for looking guys - I love this place already (y)
