Default Mesh grills and smoked out taillamps on my Punto

I have added mesh grills and did smoking out of the tail lamps to my ride,the Punto 1.3 MJD Dynamic.It was done by Ravi,the famous fibre work guy in Park town,chennai.let the pics do the talking.but sorry for the low detailed pics,as i was running outta time and the car is not really clean(sudden showers in chennai)

Good! But the front looks a bit bland without the FIAT monogram.

Yes put the Fiat Monogram back in. Looks really good. Also can we have some better pics of the whole car.

Dude, try getting the edges of the grill painted. The silver edge kinda looks out of place.

Put some black sticker or something in the area behind the number plate to the size of the grill. it will match the overall look and will look like some GT car.

yes.. That would work fine.
I have stuck matte finish stickers onto my bumpers. The end result is awesome.

dai! don't put the vinyl back.The Punto will look like a wannabe Audi with that vinyl! It looks nice now, just paint the edges of the grill black and add logo/don't add logo.Now you have made me want to do the same for my Punto!

Do not use vinyl for the whole space. Just use at the edges. I didnt the same for my swift. This would look cool.

@vigneshram - The car looks pretty neat. Like Naveen said you should seriously paint the edges as well. Where in Chennai did you get it done?

vigneshram thats a neat looking front grill for the Punto. However I would say that you get a thicker honeycomb mesh and get it painted matt black. Add the FIAT logo to it and you have a head turner at your disposal.
