Stanced Mk2 Fiat Punto
Dan Hawke’s stanced Mk2 Fiat Punto on air ride
We all have to start somewhere, and more often than not, we don’t get things right ﬁrst time. Whether it’s your ﬁrst ﬁddle with a bra strap, passing your driving test, or in this case, your ﬁrst crack at modding a car, it all takes time to perfect. But, as long as you learn from it, you can come back stronger and better.
That’s exactly what Dan Hawke has done. “I always wanted to modify a car,” says the 25-year-old joiner, “and I must admit, I made it a bit chavy to start with,” he laughs.
The cheap multi-spoke rims and other bits did his Punto no favours at all. Fortunately, he didn’t leave it like that for long. “I joined the Punto Mk2 forum and got loads of inspiration from other members,”comments Dan. After some careful research, he began the little Italian’s makeover.
