MK1 punto Progress thread.

I got my car in May 2010 just after my 17th in April. The punto is a 60s red (well matt pink) 1997 1.2.
the very first thing i did was gave it a good wash and T-cut. this brought upthe colour a bit but still was nothing like it was new
Anyway this is really just for my pleasureto look back and see all the changes I've made. Comment if you like

So far have done:
Clear Indicators
De-Badged front panels
Mk2 Punto Alloys
Beesting Aerial
Centre console
Painted mirrors and door handles matt black
Pedobear!!

Re: MK1 punto Progress thread

Looks very tidy, go get a rotary or use some arnie arms to work that t-cut in

This car reminds me of pink corsa's... and it's better than that

Part from the colour the car looks like its in good condition.

I wonder what anthracite sporting alloys would look like on a mk1

Re: MK1 punto Progress thread

Yeah its the most annoying part- the colour
Ive t cutted it twice and SRP'ed but its still not quite there yet

Ive always said i want the alloys anthracitre but taking sandpaper and paint to a set of alloys that are in good nick is wrong to me... once ive kerbed it a few times I'll refurb them anthracite lawl

Ahh only a few more times to go Should get that lovely and red in no time at this rate.

I've been tempted to get a set of sporting alloys or team dynamics for my car, Don't see the point in it though. My cars only worth... Say 650 at a push.

Re: MK1 punto Progress thread

I'll need to get myself some lowering springs, only going to drop it like 30mm tho just becuase there is so many massive road humps and sleeping policeman round my area. Just now its sitting like a bloody monster truck, many homeless people have lived in my wheel arches.

I just need to get my bum in gear and get the colour back
Gonna spray the bumpers matt black or satin black soon and a trip to the scrappy to get a new interior. Any advice on wiring up speakers in the doors if i get doorcards from the scrappy? Wire them to the dash speakers or to the HU

Re: MK1 punto Progress thread

should really improve the looks by lowering,imho 35 mm is the lowest you should go
regarding the bumpers are you not going to colour code them ? get some colour coded bumpers from a scrappy and have them painted the same colour as the car.Makes the car look a lot more clean

Re: MK1 punto Progress thread

Oh dear, have had a mini disaster. Driving around and i hear a knocking noise, i jack the car up only to find out the drivers side rear radius arm bushing has gone and the wheel is moving about

Going to be doing it at soon as the new arm comes

Does anybody know a good guide on the fiatforum or just on the tinternet?
