Grande Punto My Grande Punto :D

Introduction

Hi all, got my 56 reg grande punto 3 weeks ago :)
Ive got a few plans for it, so far i've only tinted the tail lights, i think it looks good, and ive had plenty of positive feedback! :D
got some team dynamics 17's on order and should be on within a month!
Doing the car on a tight budget, but hopefully will look good!
let me know whaat you think! :D

lights look good. was just curious as to how they lit up as only seen one car with tinted rears lit up (a corsa b:rolleyes:)and to be honest they were **** poor.

but yours look good and the light output is tstill good. need to make up my mind with my rears now:eek:

i got them off ebay, savage tail light tinting spray,
got my dad to do them, they had 3 coats, and i thought i want them darker, they now have had 6, and they look like that, it used one tin.
easy enough to do, transformed my car in little over a hour!!

So far so good mate, looks nice especially like the way you have done the rear lights.

Get rid of the egg yoke look at front and get some clear front indicator bulbs, you can get them off ebay cheap enough.

Got any pics of your alloys?

i will put the pictures of the car in darkness up tomorrow, my phones not working, so will use my digi cam :)
yeah ive just noticed how visable the ''egg yolk'' look is, so ill order some tomorrow.
thanks for your advice
also i havent got any pictures of the alloys yet, i just know there black 17'' team dynamics, they are multi spoke, but im getting them at a bargain price! :D
thanks for your feedback
im planning on tinting the windows, and after my wheels, i may get the car lowered, depending on the looks with the larger wheels.
Does anyone know a easy way to remove the 'punto' badge on the boot?
