Iíve sorted a little issue with the wipers & heater fan not working , turning out to be a faulty yellow 30 amp relay behind the fuse box on the driverís side footwell , not sure what had caused it maybe just components getting old . Hopefully get to a few meets when restrictions are lifted 👍🏻😎

Re: My punto gt3

Iíve managed to find out a bit more history of the previous owner of the GT , I called round to an address that was on an old logbook after a guy I spoke to at local car meet remembered the car and said he thought he still lived in the area. I went round yesterday to find that his parents still live there and his dad was amazed to see the car again, he rang his son and said that the GT was parked outside, he couldnít believe it was still around after twenty odd years after owning it . I chatted to him about it and found he was the second owner purchasing it from Autoworld chesterfield when it was 7-8 months old in early 1999 for around £9000 , he owned it for a year or so then trading it in for a blue HGT , which he said he hated , it was registered in June 1998 in high Wycombe ( Mckenzie Myers) maybe the dealership used it ? I have a record of sale in early 2000 for £8270 to the next owner from Sheffield , my brother then purchased it in November 2000 , Iím the 5 th owner. He also told me the front drivers wing was replaced after a bin lorry caught it while it was parked up , I knew it had been replaced at some point because the nut heads were different, nice to find out though. It also had the cd changer in the boot when he bought it . Iíve sent some photos to him and heís pleased itís still looking good and Iím getting pleasure from using it , Iím hoping to drive over to show him the car soon

Re: My punto gt3

I had a message today from the guy who I had spoken to yesterday and he arranged to come over to look at the GT this afternoon. He was blown away at the condition it was in still and said it was just how he had remembered it . We had a good chat and he cleared up a few questions, he confirmed it had been a demonstrator before his purchase and had covered around 8000 miles ( hope it wasnít thrashed by the sales guys too much ) , he had used it daily to travel to derby for work at the Toyota factory . Im glad to get a bit more info on it all ads to the history file . might see if the owner in Sheffield is still around
