Re: My Punto Mk2 - will add to it in the future

Ooh nice, I was gonna put the GSR F39i induction kit in mine when I got round to it, but it's pretty expensive for the time being.

And I don't wanna have some nutter crash into me and then my insurance not pay out cos they say I have un-declared modifications, that would not be cool.

I fail to see what's funny about having undeclared mods.

It effectively means you're driving without insurance.

You may as well go the whole hog and not bother with insurance at all. Save you a fortune, that would....

Yes, driving without insurance is hilarious.

Especially if you mow someone down, then end up paying for it for the rest of your life.

It's just not worth it to save a few quid - and any undeclared modifications are reason enough for an insurer not to pay out.

If you did have a smack where the police were involved, one of the first things they'll look into is the validity of your insurance - especially in a modified car.

Re: My Punto Mk2 - will add to it in the future

Totally agree and would also be such a waste of the money and hard work you put into the car, it's not worth it.

Also by telling the insurance company at least there's a degree of honesty there. And so far they've told me that they won't even raise my insurance by anything with the mods I've currently got, only performance upgrades they will. So it's worth talking it out with them.

Re: My Punto Mk2 - will add to it in the future

Nice, I'm gonna invest in a good sub at some point in the future now that I have front speakers and an amp installed. Just need some money and the time to do it, it's always about time and money with everything lol.

I'll probably start a proper boot build when I do that though, got a wood workshop at my disposal til about may.

Oh by the way, does anyone know if it is possible to get a Punto-sized garage I can use when I need to get stuff done on the car, it's just so annoying with all the rain I can't do anything. And I can't use my garage as my stepdad has turned that into his bike workshop lol.

Re: My Punto Mk2 - will add to it in the future

I had real trouble deciding what I wanted to go in as, I knew I wanted to be Aircrew but I loved every job in that category lol. So in the end I took my Grandad's advice and aimed high. I applied for Pilot, ideally I'd like to be a helicopter pilot. Gonna be s**t scary if I go into theatre as that! Can't wait.

Only problem is I'm not fast with mental arithmetic, and I think this will be my downfall, so at the moment I'm just doing lots of it to try and get better.

So I figured if I failed my pilot application disastrously then I know I'm not cut out for it and I can re-apply as a Weapon Systems Officer/Operator, I'd love to be a Crewman.

Anyway, if you're still reading lol, I've got my presentation in April, in Brigton, at 0830, oh the RAF do like to be awkward lol, so I'll let you know how it goes. I actually have written a blog describing my progress through my application and (hopefully) training, here it is if you, or any one else for that matter, wants to read it.
