In the manual it tells you to locate your jack under the triangle mark on the sill so ive attached an image to where I think the jack should be place... just wondering if it is the right location


Edit: Im planning on using the standard jack which came with the car.. would this be sufficent or would I need to buy a new jack?
Bought not brought. Sorry for picking it out but loads of people do it an for some reason its makes me wanna commit haha only jokin does anoy me though

Re: Punto MK2 ELX "The Punt"

Just finished painting the drums, I'm really pleased with the result and hopefully I'll get around to doing the calipers tomorrow.

I've uploaded a picture for you guys to check out.. let me know what you think.

P.S. Thanks for correcting my spelling mistake Anfield

Re: Punto MK2 ELX "The Punt"

I did my drums red at first but then realised that it just highlights that my car isn't a GT and never will be and it just highlights how small they are so I did them black..
looking good though, nice rims

I was thinking about painting mine black at first, but because my car is black I thought if I did paint them black it would be to much, otherwise it would have been my first choice, however im really pleased how the red paint has turned out

Re: Punto MK2 ELX "The Punt"

Nice but I don't reccomend putting the induction kit there. Have it positioned behind the battery is usually the better option as the pipe doesn't get hot and prevents sucking in hot air, you need colder denser air. I'm fairly certain there is a guide to do it too.
