Ive fully colour coded the front and rear bumper, wing mirrors, door handles and washer jets.
New back box, which I decided to cut the rear bumper for instead of having it sit below.
Put some cheap 17" alloys on and painted calipers and drums red.
I tinted out the back three windows.
Also instead of removing the sidestrips I decided to colour code them and stick them back on.
I also put a sporting spoiler on it.

Interiorally.

installed the upgraded clocks with rev-counter and temp gauge etc.
Also fully new speaker system with sub in the boot.

Future mods.

I'd like to get some Abarth sideskirts
Get some black alloys and smoke the rear lights and side repeaters to give a sort of dark detailing on light paintwork.

Not had a respray mate no. Just sprayed the bumpers, door handles and wing mirrors. Have access to a bodyshop with a spraybooth so getting a quality finish is easily achievable :)

Update

Installed hawk remote locking kit, however the fuse went on the wires that make the hazards flash, so ive got to get some new fuses to get that to work. Locks and unlocks fine though :)

how much did you pay for the updated clocks (rev counter ect) was they a mission to change?

Got them for about £20 of ebay. As for fitting them its easy, just unplug the old one a plug the new one in, no new wiring is required. I think there is a guide for it in the guide section.

cheerz, did you wire the rev counter and temperature gauge up ?

Nah there on the cluster already. The wires are already there. Fiat just choice not to give the lower spec puntos rev counter, obviously so the people who bought the higher models felt as though they were getting a superior model.

Also wondering if anyone has any opinions on tinted wind deflectors for the front windows..worth it or not?
