Hi Steve. I do not have a GT yet but I have a mk1 75 full GT look. Who sees iy thinks it is a GT. To be a GT I only need the engine and the dark front indicators from the GT2 and GT3.
I have this car since May 2008 and slowly since Marsh 2009 I have been modifying it to a full GT look.
I am in Eastbourne, East Sussex now and the car is back home in Madeira. But I still want to have a Punto GT (preference for the GT3), a Fiat Uno Turbo i.e and a Fiat Coupť 20v Plus.
The thing with many GT is that people would try to modify them but not know what they were doing damaging them then the car was left with a bad reputation.
Is this your daily car?
Regards

For sure it will.
There is ways to treat the chassis against corrosion and it is worth it.
I really want to find a stock gt one day.
There is one in a portuguese website for 4000 euros 90,000kms only on the clock but I cannot afford it now. Lol.
You've yours longer than I have mine.
Enjoy it mate!

Re: My punto gt3

my old gt would lock its rear brakes in cold weather cause water got up the cables and froze, never did get around to changing them, but then i did have like 7 cars at the time and the gt was not driven in winter, made for some entertaining musical cars though i can tell thee

I had that happen a couple of times a long time ago during very cold weather , tried getting it out of the garage one morning for work and it just wouldnít move thought it was a problem with the rear callipers , had to use my old lambretta to get to work, I nearly froze

Re: My punto gt3

Had the GT out for a run today, the new handbrake cables are working well . There seemed to be quite a few old cars out too, we passed a silver convertible strada going the opposite direction

Re: My punto gt3

I bet there were a large number, getting out while itís possible I pay it on the monthly in case we get good days over the winter to get out , donít think the car likes not to be used for 6 months in a row .
