My white mk2b 1.2 16v

Hi!
May 2020 i bought my first car, a Fiat Punto (188) mk2b 1.2 16v. (With 236k km) It had fake abarth badges and red sidemirrors. I removed all that crap and i think it turned out beautiful. (It now has 241k km)

New 5 spoke 16inch rims are next, after that sporting side skirts and also looking for a debadged grill, but it seems they arent sold any more, anywhere. So that's gonna be a pain in the butt.

First picture is as it was when i bought it, the second picture is recent 👌😁
I will post in the comments what i changed and rellaced on this Punto, And i will post more pictures in the comments from in between these 2 pictures in this post

Replaced the crankcase breather hose
Replaced the spark plugs, spark plug cables and ignition coil

Placed blue LED lights by the feet at the drivers and passenger seat (powered by the cigarette lighter, but connected behind it behind the dashboard so I can still use it for charging my phone and turns on and of with the key)
Placed a strutbar
Replaced the standard airfilter for an open airfilter
Replaced the end muffler for a sebring sport one

Re: My white mk2b (jaapje1988)

I know it’s probably wrong but I kinda liked the red mirrors lol, I’m sure that was probably following a Fiat 500 Amarth colour scheme if they had put abarth badges on in.

Not too many mk2b or mk2 puntos about in the uk now, but I know they still sell for fairly good money in Europe, good to see you are looking after it,you should try and get some side skirts from a HGT

Re: My white mk2b (jaapje1988)

What aerial are you using? I need a replacement. Mine is all bent.

Also, what is this "under engine cover"? Can we see that?

I like the sporting skirts more, they fit nicely with my bumpers 😁

The aerial is from ali express, works fine
And the under engine cover is a plastic thing you put under the engine, see image 😁

Looks awesome, mate. Was that difficult to do?

Wish my MK2B looked as smart as this.

Not really, fixing the soldering was the hardest, since these cheap chinese products usually have cheap soldering work 😬

Looks really nice. The black headlights really bring it together.

Re: My white mk2b (jaapje1988)

Thanks, if i could find a grill without emblem/logo/badge it would look even better, but it seems they arent sold anywhere anymore :-(
