1994 Mk Uno 1.7D (Chalkboard Car MkII)

As I've got something a little different from the average Fiat, I thought I'd post up some photos:












As suggested in the title, its painted in chalkboard paint, good fun, until it rains anyway!

Currently lowered, but I'm planning to put it back on standard springs.
No longer has white painted tyres... had to replace them and didn't get round to repainting!

Looks quite original!

Has anyone ever added anything to it?

Re: 1994 Mk Uno 1.7D (Chalkboard Car MkII)

I've always expected to go to the car in the morning and find others have added to it, but its not happened as of yet!

I have let a load of people down the pub loose at it with a box of chalk, lol.

It is good fun, but you soon run out of things to put on it... especially me, I'm not very artistic!

I think more people would add to mine, but not many people carry chalk about in their pockets!

I have a chalkboard Classic Panda 4x4 too...

Why not make abit of a chalk holder on the car, kinda like what they do with the leaflets in supermarkets in the plastic holders, but obviously your would have lids on.

but im loving the chalk board idea, my mates bathroom is painted in chalkboard paint

Replaced the cambelt & tensioners today, and the alternator belt!

Think cambelt was overdue, looks like original belt, done just shy of 75k!

Got springs still to replace, and have already rebuilt rear brakes (for last MoT) and fitted new water pump. Also had 3 new tyres, and tracking & camber adjusted.

Been pretty expensive so far, hopefully its worth it!

Love your car! It's totally unique but I imagine it looks a bit different with the current weather

Yeah its currently less decorated due to it getting a 'wash' every few days...



Got loads of acrylic paint to try on it though...
