Re: Punto gt turbo restoration

Re: Punto gt turbo restoration

I thought I had done work to mine but I feel ashamed as to what Ive done to the cabriolet now. Very good work and to a very high standard. Keep up the good work am enjoying this a lot.

Re: Punto gt turbo restoration

i quite like the morettes tbh, even on a stock car they look good. But do the car, stick them on - if you don't like it i'm sure someone will snap them up, pretty hard to get these days i believe.

Re: Punto gt turbo restoration
