Re: Out with the old, in with the new (my punto mk2a progress thread)

got me 2 used TOYO tyres yesterday. not even a mm thread used off them, still got the nipples on the tyre wall and the paint line on the thread.

heres a link to them if anyone wants to see:

http://ssl.delti.com/cgi-bin/rshop.p...&nichtweiter=1

payed 20 each inc valve etc

think i got a good deal with them as they are very close to new

wouldnt usualy put used tyres on the front but as there hardley broke in and they have anti aqua-plane and better looking grip than the new 1 i got then thort itd be better to stick the TOYO ones on the front.

all i need now is one more new one for the rear and my alloys will be on

Re: Out with the old, in with the new (my punto mk2a progress thread)

sent a pic of my car to flyeyes and they sent me an example pic back. they sent me wat it would look like in red and purple but looked crap lol. the pic i sent them is of before i de-tangoed as i havn't took a pic de-tangoed yet lol.
email explains about how it passes mot and the things it comes with (tools) also comes with an mot pass certificate on the product. so thinking about getting this. lights will suit the car a lot i think. seeing as tho im going for the black and red theme

Re: Out with the old, in with the new (my punto mk2a progress thread)

right post back on tomorrow so hopefully dtm plates will arrive. not in to much of a rush as i aint got the paint yet. does anyone know if fiat dealer still sells the paints for the mk2 punto? or would i have to get it mixed from somewhere?

plan tomorrow tho is im going to go down to the tyre place and ask them if they have the 2 other used TOYO tyres that match the 2 i got last week. if they have ask them if they are willing to swap the brand new one they fitted on mine for the 2 used ones. the new tyre has obv been unused as alloys havent been fitted. they can only say no but if its a yes then il be pleased they would still have made 8 proffit from me as the 2 used came to 40 fitted and the one new was 48. so lets see what they say.......

Re: Out with the old, in with the new (my punto mk2a progress thread)

got my alloy wheels on 2nite. just finished it. took me ages as i ran into a few problems. first off i took back steel wheel off to put one wheel on to see if locking nuts where right length. they where but the inside of wheel was touching the shocks so had to put steel wheel back on. go in back garden, where my old punto is and get a wheel off that and get the 2cm spacer. put wheel back on, and get other 3 spacers. then back to the front where then i again took off steel wheel. put on spacer and alloy and yay fit a treat. also still plenty of arch gap so no need for arch rolling. needed gf help to press the brake so i could put on front spacers but on one of the fronts the wheel nuts wouldnt come out for sh*t. so had to get my extended arm wrench and still struggled with that but finaly got them out. then the little alignment nut fings on the front hub one was realy rusted on and whent ovel so hammer came to hand and nocked it one way then the other and came loose and unscrewed. gf's help again on brake ( she was not happy as she was missing shameless lol). but finally wheels are on and look brill. feel like iv done 8hrs at the gym tho as i was using a bloody cross wrench need an impact wrench i think in the future.

anyways i havent took pic tonight as im fooked and also its pi55ing down. but tomorrow i will get pics up guys.
