I just masked the front end up with shrink wrap n tape n just sprayed it a few times. No sanding no priming nothing and it still looks good, there's loads of videos on YouTube.

the channel is dipyourcar.com on YouTube they have a video on spraying chrome peice off psis
thanks for the help
just ordered some black
ebay for the win

like it dude
shame about the arch gap .
it such a bad design by fiat,
they engines seem to sit so low tho.
i lowered mine bout 60m bit more and it doesnt look low but underneath the lower strut brace ( which is so weak ) is a key fob from the floor

LOVe the black roof

Hmmm sort off its hard to really see off the pictures,
If u lift ur bonnet ther are two rubber bung thingies either side about half way up if i remember correctly, which you can tighten up or loosen which in turn will lift or drop the bonnet becuz the bonnet sits on the bungs.

Giv it a go it mite shut the gap

Re: My Punto Evo

Hey i'm liking the look of your car, i wish i got mine in red now! i've just bought a black punto grande sporting 1.4 16v and amongst other small modifications, i want to change the exhaust - nothing too loud or in your face just a bit louder than stock so i can hear it in the car. have you modified your exhaust? if so could you give me some tips of what i should be looking for, i dont want to change the whole exhaust system, the smaller the change the better, but i want noticeable results. any ideas?

You would be probably better going to see an exhaust manufacturer. Maybe just a "backbox" would be good enough for the likes of yourself. However, be warned that the backbox and center section is one complete system so to do the backbox, you would either have to cut the exhaust at the right place or buy a new center section.

Yeah i got a powerflow back box, as on the GP 1.4 8v there isnt a centre box. but my exhaust isnt loud, it got a nice rumble. also pops a little on the overrun

i would make sure that u go for a big pipe, or a screamer pipe. the tip on my back doesnt make it loud. i would say if i was gettin a new exhuast i got for rolled 2inch tip. hope helps
