Talking My Punto Mk2 - will add to it in the future.

2001 FIAT Punto Mk2 1.2 8v ELX
Grigio Steel

My car the day I got it:




I then removed the stock radio/cassette player and installed this:

I'll put details at the end

I also installed remote central locking

I then set to work smooth siding the car, giving it a good wash and waxing all black trim, pics below:



For now that's all i'm gonna do but i do have a list of things i'm gonna have done or do in the summer:

Modifications:

- Head unit (Sony CDX-GT530UI)
- Hawk Universal Remote Central Locking Upgrade
- Smooth sided

To do:

- Colour coded bumpers (Sporting)
- Colour code wing mirrors
- Colour code door handles
- De-badge rear
- Front speakers
- Alloys + tyres

In the future:

- Angel eye headlights
- Smooth boot lid (de-lock and remove wiper)
- Mk2b rear lights
- De-badge bonnet
- De-lock doors
- Tint rear windows
- GSR F39i Induction kit
- Exhaust

- MAYBE get it resprayed in a cool colour scheme but i havent decided yet

I'll add to this thread once i get some more stuff done
if anyone has any good ideas i havn't thought of let me know

Looking good mate.
Some very tidy plans too. Nothing quite over the top either

Although personally I would avoid the respray altogether, OEM with subtle mods ftw! xD

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

karbineftw cheers, yeah thats what im aiming for


TeeJayMk3 - I bought a Hawk Universal Remote Locking Upgrade kit, it was about £20 - link here: http://www.hawkcaralarm.com/Remote.html

and i managed to fit it fairly easily. the wiring guide that comes with it is not helpful so use this one:

https://www.fiatforum.com/punto-guid...-8v-punto.html - thanks to L2wis for that guide

it took me about 3 hours in total but that was only because i misread one of the instructions so i had to go back and do it again :@, so make sure you read it carefully lol

but other than that it works a treat now

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

It should work on your car yes

BUT i have just noticed something, you said your car doesn't have central locking? you have to unlock each door individually yeah?

if this is the case then you need a DIFFERENT kit because you need more wires and actuators and all sorts, and is probably more difficult to fit, off the top of my head i cant think of any specific ones but im sure if you look on ebay or car sites you should find one

my car already had central locking so it was just a case of wiring a little remote locking box into the car

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

Nice tidy looking car mate.

To add to the list, maybe you want to consider:
*Removing the b-pillar vinyl

*Colour coding the interior plastics cos they just look cheap and ruff with OEM so sand, prime, paint and laquer them, i canhelp you with this if you want and there a guide ithik https://www.fiatforum.com/punto-guid...-interior.html all interior plastic come off with easy just ask if your not sure how to remove summat.

*Wire neons everywherre lol up to you where to wire them but as TeeeeJaiiii says wire some footwell neons they look really neat and tidy no wires or tubes visible(i can also help you with this and am gonna make a guide today on how to wire them i have neons undercar, bumper grill, footwells, heater vents and glovebox) http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BLUE-Interior-Neon-Light-Lights-Kit-footwell-boot-neons_W0QQitemZ190343611481QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_C arsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item2c515d0459 they have different colours just email them or search through there shop

*50mm drop for sure get some budget prings from LOSUSPENSION.COM very good springs iv got them on my mk2 only£75 ish http://www.losuspension.com/p4080213.htm

This is my punto dropped 50mm big imrovement anything under 50 wont be as noticable and vinyl & door strips removed and colour coded:



Neons in footwell:

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

All good ideas, ill definitely lower it at some point, cheers for the link btw

and removing the b-pillar vinyl should be an easy weekend job eh?

i reckon ill do some of the other stuff before i colour code the interior plastics though, it just seems like a real pain to get everything off, and i use the car fairly regularly so i need to find the time to do it really

also nice car to you too, especially your alloys, i'd really like to get some in that style (with all the spokes) but in matt black

Should take no more than 10 mins with a hair dryer either side. I personally think it makes the car look lower to the floor with the B pillar strips on.

I agree with Karbine, looks better with the vinyl. It wouldn't work so well unless you had a black car like brin
