My mk2 Punto

Hey i have just started to mod my car and there are more mods to come such as colour coding which will happen in around a week - 2 weeks and bumper strips coming off and lowering! So far i have Some 16" TSW alloys, debadged some of the boot, new gear knob, pedals and crappy cd player which will be replaced shortly! What does every1 think so far!?

Re: My mk2 Punto

i like the wheels; clean, simple and they suit the car well. good choice

you might as well pull the punto badge off (and then sell it on ebay lol)

if you hadnt considered it already, get the door handles colour coded at same time as everything else, most people dont bother but it makes all the difference and takes only a tiny bit of paint.

Looking nice have you been quoted for your handles and mouldings to be painted? if so how much, decent ideas in the pipeline for the punto

Re: My mk2 Punto

yeah the quote was £110 what a bargain! but that is only cos i know the bloke who is doing it so he can get the paint cheaper at a discount for me etc! that price is including all materials such as paint primer etc and labour so i can't argue rli! i've seen his work on his car and its mint so i'm happy!!!
