paint job

i posted these pics on the bravo/a section as i am about to style the bravo. LOL this was my first car a punto 55s and i painted the interior - er not to eveyones taste lol but i thought i would stick up for people to have a mooch at lol:D

When i painted my punto i painted the inerior blue and silver - the window winders were a bad choice to paint[xx(]









i got rid of the car a few months later - i still see it knocking around rochdale - they have put a blue steering wheel on it too now:D


I have a bling* bling* shiny blue thing

how did you get the gaiter to fit the gear lever? I bought a gear surround, gaiter, knob and two different length sleeves that should fill the gap between gaiter and knob, but I still can't get the f#%£*r to fit properly! its usable but as I'm a bit of a perfectionist it just kinda sits there tormenting me... I nearly turned round and ripped it out to make a nice gucci fibreglass console.. But I'v chicken out of that just yet...

Yep, I'm new... So point, laugh, and enjoy it, while you still can...

Hi, i have also put a new momo knob and gaiter in my bravo - in both cars the knob and gaiter are all momo - i personally like the quality of momo.

I cut the actual gear stick with a hacksaw and cut a few inches off and then just used the adaptars and they fit perfectly:)

LOL thanks about the mats:)

yeah first i rubbed all the plastic down with a de-greaser like bodyshops use i then primed it.

the paint is acually a ford paint from halfords in the spray cans - the silver was called stardust silver and but i am unsure what the blue was i may still have the touch up kit at home so will have a look.:)

and it needs to have a coat of laqur too

I have a bling* bling* shiny blue thing
