This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
SIX RECOLOURS FOR THE RECOLOURABLE FIAT PUNTO
by Padu and Numenor

03 FEB 2006 - Added a "Tamarro" recolour for the Punto
Apart some Italians, you'll wonder what a "tamarro" is...
Please take a look at the screenshot: as you can see, it's the same, original blue Punto, but with some... ehm... "tuning"
Colourful aggressive designs painted on the sides, a rugged fur cover for the steer, a little religious sticky (on the right) plus a couple of magnetic holders (on the left) attached to the dash-board, and a... ehm... distracting DVD instead of the GPS map
Last but not least, a strong deodorant (applied to the right air vent), to mask the smell of the ever-burning sigarettes.
Also have you noticed the "suit" of the driver? It's the only one allowed in such a car...
OK, now you know what "tamarro" means...

-----------------------------------------------------------

IMPORTANT - Before installing the recolourable Punto, you have to physically remove any older Punto you may have in your lots, and then delete the old Punto packages (Maxis' original and old Padu's orange) from the Downloads.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Padu gave me permission to "convert" in a standard recolour package his "Orange Punto"; in addition to this, Padu provided me three more beautiful textures, in order to make other recolours for the Punto.
Each recolour package contains a new texture for both the exterior and the interior (see screenshot to see the colour couplings).
All the graphics used for these recolours are by PADU; I've added myself only the pink recolour (very kitsch! I needed it to match the pink Limo...): If you judge it terrible, well... it's not Padu to blame! :D

The available exterior/interior recolours (from left to right in the screenshot) are:
Pink/Pink - Green/Beige - Black/Orange - Red/Grey - Orange/Orange

Note: since the exterior and the interior are separate parts of the car, you can mix&match at will the colours, among the ones that you choose to install.
Only, remember that if you delete an interior colour, the corresponding exterior will be delete, too!

Tanja, the windows are not recolourable, either in neighborhood view or in lot view.
In particular, when in neighborhood view, most of the glass objects look transparent.

the rod rat, as far as I know, isn't a free object, like the Punto: I can't do anything with it...

Your recolors don't work for me I think it's because I downloaded the first version of the Punto a long time ago here, it was a purple one.
I can't find the file anymore to replace it ! What a shame..
Does anyone here has the same problem ?

chatnoir, do this: remove our new Punto & recolours from your downloads, then start the game and open the catalog: if you find the old purple Punto, delete it from the catalog and restart the game. When the game starts, check again if the old Punto is really disappeared from the catalog (if it's still there, search your lots and delete all the Punto before removing again it from the catalog).

When the catalog is "clean" from any Punto, install ours again, along with the recolours you like.
