Fiat Cinquecento Sport"ing"

Fiat Cinquecento Sport"ing"

Well... sooner or later I had to present my Cento.

It all started in an add.

The car is black, from 1996, 3 owners counting myself in, it has AC, stearing wheel and Seiscento indicators and a soul that's very healthy :t_up:

No visible rust, shocks and springs in good condition, good interiors... it's a nice car.

Meanwhile, like I always do with new hings in my hand, it went to the mechanic and also neighbour (Fiat expert that owns two 127s, one Uno and one Panda).

Small perspective


Red bits will come off and will be repainted


New badges are already purchased and wayting for the paintjob


Underneath seems to be all fine


Stearing wheel is dry and carpet on driver's side has some holes


105.000km trip to mechanic

What's done:
-Head gasket verified
-Brake pads
-Oil filter
-Gas filter
-Cooling system purified and cleaned tank
-Semi-sintetic oil 10-40
-Anti-freeze at 50-50
-Spark plugs
-Rear wheel bearing on passenger side
-Hand brake tuned
-All hinges (???) were also tuned (doors, trunk,...)
-Green air filter cleaned and lubed
-Tube from the widshield water repaired

What's missing:
-2 new rear tires
-Trunk's lock is broken
-Need a new water tank cap
-Repair cataliser (it was taken off by previous owner) and replace exchaust
-Measure exchaust emissions
-Tire and stearing calibration
-Placing new stereo and speakers
-Place new badges
-Repair and polish painting and interiors

Sorry for the terrible english.

Have fun.

Many thanks for your kind comment.

If everything goes as expected, I will be the last owner of this Cento.

Have fun.

Re: Fiat Cinquecento Sport"ing"

Spent the day at the gym manually polishing my car.

Good, professional products can make wonders and our car look superb.









If someone has some doubts about this kind of work I can share everything I learned today whike doing it. Tomorrow I'll post my setup.
