Original Cindy - v2.0

As awaited by a few, here are the latest pics of my Original Cindy Cosmetic Rock and Roll Upgrade.

One of the overriding reasons I bought Cindy was the 500 signalled fun. Not just a super fly economical car, but something fun to drive. God knows the commute is tiresome at best.

Some of you may like this, it's really ok if you don't. I'll be keeping Cindy until her wheels (and possible chrome) fall off so have designed it to be 100% me. Cheers to everyone else out there that has taken their own spin to their 500's.

Before shots:


Begining of the Gok Wan Treatment:

Taping up the Abar after some tiger seal, that stuff is lethal.
Removing my number plates to prepare for operation chrome overload.
Chrome fitted.
Apologies forgot to rotate this one! Has abar and bonnet chrome in place.

Time for some skulls.. .
Custom skull chrome decal.

500 decals on the side in chrome


Original Cindy decal on rear.
Rear number plate trim.

Interior Courtney Love Treatment:
Rock and roll zebra print mats

Obligatory dashboard skull
My now famous visor covers.

Last pic of me and Original Cindy after a days fun!

I'm still awaiting delivery of the chrome mirrors and to remove the bloody dealer sticker that is welded on. That will be next weekend!

Had a proper giggle making Cindy even more rock and roll than she was before. Already had a few double takes on the way to work. If any one wants to know where I got the decals I ordered them from aardvark4design.com. Richard was very helpful and even threw in a few freebie duplicates in case I buggered them up!

Re: Original Cindy - v2.0

I love it, especially the zebra mats and visor stickers I'm so pinching that idea, loving the misfits sticker too

You will have a blast matey, the black ones looks really superb when fully cleaned an polished.

It's all about enjoying yourself whether that be sticking to the original fittings from the fiat configurator or going a bit more off field for your look.

Some people need to chill out round these parts, lots of arguing over opinions and who is factually correct. None of that rubbish here!

What extras did you order spoons?

Re: Original Cindy - v2.0

can I ask where you got your chrome number plate surround from too? I feel the need to chrome mine up more upon seeing this

If you do I used sticky pads from the stationary section of a super market which are double sided. Also I backed mine in laminate so if I do need to take them off they wont rip. :-)

What 500 have you got Claire?

The chrome OCD has infected me too!

Yes ebay. There aqre the official ones which are plain surrounds and 22 a pop, or these unofficial ones with 500 logos etched onto them. They are really quite tough and well made about 8 each! Bargain. Just search fiat500 chrome on ebay.
Thanks clairebear thanked for this post

that's a good idea laminating it, I'm going to get a template tonight and raid my stickers to see what'll look good.

I have a 1.2 in crossover black with side rubbing strips and foglights. Still to put chrome bonnet line on, chrome wing mirror covers and new plate. Photo's are on here somewhere, can't change my signature from ordered to 'now owns'

Re: Original Cindy - v2.0

thank you, found them on ebay! I do like the 500 etched on yours and they're cheaper than fiat official so even better

Ordered Team Dynamics Pro-Race 1.2 16" Alloy Wheels painted in "Power Silver", pick these up at the end of the week.

Ordered Eibach 30mm Pro-Kit Lowering Springs to make the car look more racey and handle better.

Received a nice Richbrook aluminium '500' Tax Disc holder

Looking at Metallic Charcoal 'Viper Stripe' vinyl at the moment and trying to decide what colour to use... silver or Charcoal...??

Probably going to get a window tint company to fit a dark tint at the top of my windscreen, so it will 'lower' the look of the car from the front...

Going to get some caliper paint so that I can paint my brake calipers Blue which is a nice colour against the Black paintwork..

Errrm, thats about it I think

Oh... and I'm going to save up for some Coilovers and 17" wheels later next year

Here is a crappy photoshop of what I'm aiming for.... something like this (but i dont know if it will all work )

Re: Original Cindy - v2.0

Spoons sounds adventurous!

Think the charcoal will look awesome if metallic. I love my chrome, wouldn't have lots of it though as it can be easily scratched.

Black window tint is a pretty smart idea for that sporty look!

Awesome...I sadly have never seen them been a fan for about 15 years though! Jerry Only's favourite artist is dolly parton though which always made me laugh...especially when I went to see her, not really expecting much, she kicked ass though!!
