Re: It's finished... maybe...

Thanks for all your comments fella's.

I've taken on board what you've being saying, and will be removing some of the written Abarth badges (keeping the genuine ones though ).

I don't know whether to remove the vents or not, you really need to sit in a car directly infront of mine to see what I mean lol. They're not that bad - Also they helped me discover that the Special Exotica Red paint is actually Hammerite Smooth Red

Thanks again, Tom

Re: It's finished... maybe...

Looks spot on Tom, liking what you've done to it. I have to agree with others about the bonnet vents tho, they just don't seem to work on the bonnet of the grande punto, best left for the escort cosworths and that.

Well done though, and I definately know your not finished yet.... I look forward to seeing your next mods!!!!

Good lad, its as if your trying to make it seem like something it isn't (an Abarth ). I'm not much for 'replica' things. Other than the badges and vents it looks super, stripes look brilliant against the red. The main Abarth badges are ok (ones that replaced the Fiat logos), but the stickers look a little tacky (sorry ).

I'll have to see about the vents, got a 'holiday' home in Weston Super Mare, you can come show me when im down next time.

Re: It's finished... maybe...

As said before tom, i really like your car but i do think the bonnet vents are out of place, they should be on some bad boi corsa or something, get rid of them and it'll look smart.

Re: It's finished... maybe...

Generally i like what you've done with it, tho there are a couple of bits that'd look better off the car. Personally i think you should stop with cosmetic mods now otherwise i think you might be in danger of making it look tacky

Your cars gorgeous, you've utilised the best of everything available for the car, and gone the extra mile for the other bits, it looks immense, you should be proud

Re: It's finished... maybe...

Looking good mate... the only thing i would lose is the white line at the front edge of the bonnet breaks up the smooth lines of the GP... plus i think it might help out on the bonnet vent situ.... as the white line attracts attention

your car mate, do it how you want it.... your the one paying for the car!
