No, that's what's inside your backbox.. Just that my internals collapsed.

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

I'm so bad at posting updates! So yesterday (last week now )......

Basically new front disks and pads, sending me from these (stopped you so well as they'd rusted together).

To this.. Yes I realised the lack of copper grease and have since added lots

I wish I could have painted the centres and callipers but let's be real, it's temporary as I'll need the upgrade with the new engine!

I also obtained new buttons for the fogs and heated screen as that was an MOT failure.. I cut the holder as it had the vents in and I don't plan to replace them (save the weight and all).

Whilst all this was happening I had the battery on charge.. Only for a few hours so not a full charge.. Despite this though she started first turn of the key.. How long has she been sat for now?? 6 months minimum.. And people say Fiats are unreliable!

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

Bit of a belated update here;

I did manage to get the Punto through an MOT at long last, this was after;

- new rear trailing arm
- new rear brake line
- front disks and pads
- new cat & lamda
- 2 new front tyres
- new n/s front wishbone
and 8 hours welding...

just over 800 worth of actions there, I also have a new rear anti-rollbar that's sat in a box un fitted..

I've been driving her around for a while as a cheap alternative to the Coupe but I have to be honest and say that the Coupe has killed my Punto dreams and I think I'll be wasting any further money on the Coupe instead..

It's for that reason and with regret that the little Punto is up for grabs, be it as a whole of as parts, so if you know anybody send them my way.. I'm willing to let it go cheap as a whole to somebody who will keep her on the road.. has what 9/10 months MOT (I'll look the cert out if anyone is interested)..

Otherwise all parts are up for grabs.. I'll get some more pictures loaded as soon as it stops raining, a few recent ones will be posted below once I've uploaded them.



Couldn't get a nice pic of that wheel.. She still gleams though, must have 10ft of wax on her

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

well thats sad, although i totally understand. Can people please keep parts requests or making offers for the car to PMs though rather than posting here.

Suggest you stick an ad up in classified fella, see if someone will buy it as a whole first - be a shame for another mk1 to bite the dust if someone will take it and look after it, they are getting thin on the ground!

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

I know what you mean Blu, I don't want her to go but I have 3 cars and neither the money or time to look after her and now that sun is starting to show it's face she's not moved much..

I will knock something up on the classifieds tomorrow and get it up on relevant FB pages etc, better pictures, yada yada, just thought I'd get it out there for now..

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

Been there mate, wasn't that long ago i had far too many cars... I got rid of them cause of moving house and not having anywhere to store them all but it was kind of a revelation once they were mostly gone that I actually had time and money to spend on a car rather than 'fire fighting' trying to keep loads road worthy...
Before I moved i had the turbo seicento, the 16v cinquecento, an alfa 159, a punto GT and a mercedes CLK..
And really i say this like i am down to one but in reality i am still paying the finance on the alfa just don't have it here, my uncles using it. And i got the bravo HGT and my suzuki Ignis lol - I'm going in the right direction at least haha.

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

I did love Molly though, she was a beaut!

Same for me, fire fighting is a good description and whilst the Punto has been a real trooper that last bill really was the last one for me.. The Coupe is a better project with more potential and I'm getting older and don't need to be rolling around in a Punto. Plus my daughter in rinsing me so I don't have a much spare cash anymore.. I have to plan and save

Re: My Sporting 1.2 16v in black

Just had welding done and had been undersealed, advisory on mot for n/s door seal iirc.. Tbh though it failed the MOT about 6 times the guy openly admitted they were being harsh as it doesn't have rear seats or belts an they don't condone it.. I just did everything the failed it for each time so it's solid in my eyes.. It wants a little tlc but would be cracking for the track! That's why I brought my Coupe in the first place as I wanted the engine for this car.. It's got upgraded bulbs all round HIDs (they're properly set up and produce a wicked looking light pattern only ever been flashed once when I had them on the highest height..)

Front upper strut brace, new rear anti roll bar still boxed ready to fit. Always kept serviced and well looked after under my ownership.. Treated to the best. Just had new cat and lambda for mot, had new flexi pipe last year. Booth rear trailing arms replaced in my ownership and one of the front wishbones (iirc n/s).. Plus more.. The new disks and pads have only done 2/300 miles, same for the front tyres

But be under no illusion, it's not 100% mint, just well looked after in my care.. I'll try to lookout the mot cert and bill for parts tomorrow and take some better pics so you can see it as it is.
