Re: sdb-punto Punto MK2

Great base for project. To be honest I would colour code everything, bumpers, wing mirrors, see if there is a sporting in same colour in a scrappy, changing those makes a huge difference and increases the value of your car.

Thanks Tris

I might be getting a machine polisher Meguiars G220 soon

I have already bought the paint and its already sanded down and smooth so I might as well! will smarten up and make the engine bay look cleaner anyway

Boot should be finished after this weekend as well with a bit of luck.

Its in the bodyshop 10th August as well

Re: sdb-punto Punto MK2

UPDATE: started on the audio



Took off the doorcards and the white foam layer. Then completely cleaned out all of the doors!



We then applied the Dynamat This sound deadened the whole doors, its great stuff and highly recommended, you wont find better on the market.





After this stage was done we then put Dynamat over the whole door, so that it covered all possible holes.





Then came mounting the front components. The tweeter positioning in the Punto is terrible, so i will be having 'custom made' A pillar pockets (where the original tweeters are, and the manual window levers) Also on went the Crossovers and The mid-bass speakers. The speaker collars will eventually be covered in Dynamat as well so there will be no holes etc (we were going to fibreglass them, but this will work just as well)







Its going to be a proper job! Thankfully i have a extremely good installer working with me and showing me how to do various things!

Lastly i have also tinted my side repeaters blue and sprayed my cam cover silver to smarten it up a bit
