Arrow Jake's Punto 1.2 Active

I've been putting this off and off and off so now i've decided to post pictures of Peroni the Punto.

He's a list of what i've done already:

External
-Debadged rear 'Punto'
-Removed side strips
-Fully blacked out rear 3 windows
-Smoked front windows
-Removed Active quarter panel badges and added Abarth ones
-Changed ariel to beesting
-HID light conversion
-Painted rear drums yellow to match front Brembos

Performance
-New gearbox
-New clutch
-K&N 57i Induction kit (properly installed so not just sucking hot air as most other divvys with k&N do!)
-Mintex brake discs & pads
-Brembo front callipers in yellow
-Fox Racing 15" alloys

Pictures












Future Plans
-Lower about 50mm with APEX springs (yellow of course!)
-Add yellow Abarth centre caps
-Colour code side mirrors & door handles
-Smoke side repeaters and rear lights
-Fix the dent in the boot!!
-Customise fiat badges so background is yellow instead of blue
-Possibly either buy 16/17" alloys or powder coat mine in black

So what do you think??

Jake

Re: Jake's Punto 1.2 Active

Aye brin that's how it is fitted but most people on here I have seen just having it sit on top of their engine block which is pointless as it can only suck in hot air! So that's what I meant

Agree with lad, the sound is amazing!

Yer I read about the rocker issue also. I was going to get an empty foglight panels for the front to run the two intakes off but they are bolted to below the rad now because it was easier!!

Re: Jake's Punto 1.2 Active

pics of the engine bay would be a bonus. not sure on the yellow brake drums tho. just draws unwanted attention to the fact they are drums imo. plans sound good, just dont go ott with adding all the abarth stuff. looks tacky if over done... even on abarths.
