Re: my punto mk2 1.2 active (aka project bangarang to my friends)

thats better

Also i notice your on 195/50/15

Compared to the standard 185/55 15's

Alot of use will be swapping due to much cheaper rubber

No problems with aqua planing? rubbing? Better in general?

to be honest no problems at all, they are the tyres that came with the rims when i got em well over 12 months ago now. theres spacers on the back cos they were rubbing at first on a bolt behind the wheel inside th arch. no problems since lowering as its been taken as low as it can go with our rubbing might but some lower profile tyres on it next. I'd rather pay out for good rubber more frequently and do less drinking

How easy was it to cover the door card in suede? May look at doing something similar myself to spruce it up?

It's easy job. Use spray glue. Here's mine. Red leather interior will be coming next, color is fading a bit.

Re: my punto mk2 1.2 active (aka project bangarang to my friends)

It wasn't too hard would advise using carpet glue spray rather than the just spray adhesive I used and make you you get a nice tight fitment I also cut the plastic bottom off when I did mine there may be better ways to do that, I've since switched to mk2 b door cards they are an exact fit and look far nicer ill be uploading some new pics of how the car is now when I've got some time off work which isn't often cos in getting cash together for a full respray and a new project car
