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

These are the first recolours I have ever released, I don't normally release my recolours as I don't consider them that great, it's not an area I would consider myself skilled in and I don't have any decent graphic software. Anyway I decided that I might as well share them here, you can always do as I do and delete them out of your game if you don't like them.

Colours are as below and each has an unique number plate (old styles of British prefix).

1. Yellow (YEL 10W)
2. Purple (PUN 2)
3. Light Blue (L1 GHT)
4. Sky - Pale Blue (B100 SKY)
5. Ocean - Pale Green (OCE 4N)
6. Silver (S11 VER)

Thanks to the brilliant Numenor for making the Punto recolourable.
Car Type: Hatchback Compact

Very pretty cars. You have amazing parking lot with cars parking at an angle.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Hi Robkingsbury
Thanks for the compliments. As for the lot (I presume you mean the Car Sales one), no I don't have it available for download, it's not that I wouldn't want to share my lots because I gladly would, the problem is that I use a lot of custom content in my lots, some of which is made by people that state they do not want there work re-distributed within lots, others want thanks and links to their sites and I'm afraid I can't remember which is which or who to thank! Hell I can't even remember which website I got something from half the time!!! Hope that makes sense!!!

With that said, I could probably make the Car Sales lot available as I don't think there is that much custom content! In fact I think it may all be available here but I'd have to check. The other thing about the Car Sales lot is that it was made basically for the neighbourhood view only. Although it was made as a community lot, if your sim was to visit all the cars come off the lot and keep driving past the lot, totally crazy. Anyway I could make this available here at MTS2 (without the cars) if you still wanted it. PM me

The Black Punto is the 'Fiat Punto "BadBoy" #3' by Vampcat and is available at variousimmers.net

Which bricks are cool? I don't think there's any that are not standard maxis ones!!

Sorry for the misunderstanding Calakarad, but where I come from (downunder) Mini's are commonly called "Bricks". I think it has to do with their compact size + the earlier models had quite a bit of weight to them for such a little car.

Thanks for link to badboy #3

Sorry, even though there has been lots of interest, I will not be uploading the car lot. It contains mainly custom content and once removed it looks a bit boring, probably to boring to be approved for upload.

To be honest there is not very much to it, it's on a 4x4 lot which is mainly tarmac with a long building across the rear plus a small wall around the tarmac area. The posts are just column's put into position using the 'boolProp snapObjectsToGrid false' cheat. The fairy lights are Dazzlin' Dorm Lights which came from www.welldressedsim.com (although you could use the Maxis xmas lights if you have them) and the windows were fullsize plain glass windows from god knows, but there are a few around. Finally just decorate the showroom with a few desks, chairs, pictures of cars and then add the cars.
