BTW punto's looking good mate i like
It should work with all the badges, usualy u have a small hole behidn the badge and u push the plastic part thru that hole and it goes off.
The blu part u use sand paper (i hope its called like that) and u sand it off but be careful that u sand off only blue and not silver letters! Than u spray it


Tnx for the car, your car is great too


And look what we have here:



Cant wait to put it together

Re: Punto HGT mk2b 1.8 16V

By all accounts it will work, but be VERY careful. Can you cut the backing plastic instead of the plastic? If you must cut the glass, tape it up as you cut so the partly cut lens cant move and shatter. Replace the head light motors while on the case. They seem to fail easily.

This weekend i have managed to do one lamp - a test one, and i ve glued it already together... and i think it will work
Just dont actually know what glue to use, i've used a 2 component glue and then over a heat resistant silicone. Will see
I must check for some other heat resistant glue.

Re: Punto HGT mk2b 1.8 16V

The lamps don't get that hot so no need to worry about heat resistant adhesive. Just use the right product for the plastics to be glued.

My MKII HGT is an Abarth - black with very blacked out rear windows. The only trim fuaxpas is the twin (Peco) exhausts that are just too big. A previous owner (nark) has cut the bottom of the rear bumper to get them in. Long term I'll fit smaller outlets that go through the holes in the bumper. It might need a new bumper, but as said thats long term stuff

Re: Punto HGT mk2b 1.8 16V

Some clear exterior use silicone sealant will do the job fine
