Re: My Mk2 Punto 1.2 8v Project

Looks pretty sweet You need to get that bitch lowered though, it looks like a jeep!! I reckon a split backbox would look good on the mk2? Don't know whether this would be possible with the Abarth bodykit, but I'm sure it wouldn't take much to drill a few holes DEFFINATELY destrip the sides, I would also suggest you sand, prime and paint the plastic strips on the front and back of the car, just above the bumpers... It looks **** - just like the side strips

EDIT: Get the Abarth spoiler, it looks awesome!!

EDIT 2: Don't get the leather seats... Leather is HEAVY and your car will feel the pain!! That would be the opposite of a performance mod, infact your insurance company would applaud you!

Re: My Mk2 Punto 1.2 8v Project

Sparco bucket seats? Can look cool if you don't want rear seats and stick a roll cage in, can be hard to find something to match in terms of rear seating I love the look of the Abarth HGT, chrome dash, handbrake, gear stick, steering wheel and pedals... Its all about themes... Pick a colour and tart it up
