Cinq Abarth Black an yellow

hello everybody,
3 months ago I bought my Fiat Cinquecento,
back then it looked like this:


When i bought it, the gearbox was leaking oil at the driveshaft bearing, so as advised by a fellow cinquecento driver, i took out the engine and gearbok, replaced the bearings, cleaned the engine a little and replaced the valve cover gasket


next step, interior..

because I loved driving it(after 1 day) I began loooking for a new driver seat, I actualy found one, but then spotted another gem:

(photo is made before cleaning interiors!)
after cleaning and fitting it looked very nice!



after that i bought myself a new steering wheel, original electric windows and electric locks

the same as my original only stiched with red thread(i think that sentence is not correct)

next upgrade,
a black?!? Abarth kit
yes black, because i can, and at that time i havn't seen another cinq in this color combination



when i got home after fitting them ( almost on the other side of the country) i customized the fog lights


had my first meeting with this car

(this looks kinda stupid )

Yes the creative idiot in me strikes again!

this time i wanted red rings in my dash, but rim liner does not like to stay there
so spray paint it is!



and then it looked sort of dull on those original wheels, so i fitted a set of BBS Mahle 13x7J ET12


And yes, after al that the idiot in me decided to go oldschool ,

and yet my to do list:

everything marked in red is done
-refurbish headlights

-60/40 suspension kit bumpstops
-custom sporting bumpers
-zwarte dashboard etc monteren
-build custom oldschool 900 gear knob
-900 teller installeren
-new windscreen with sun filter
-Engine Tuning
-Racing seatbelts
- front/rear strutbar
- Strongflex

parts needed:

-900 Gearknob
-Black dash and trim
-900 oldschool gauge
-900 mid consol

-1.1mpi intake
-Strongflex kit
-strutbars
-windscreen
-original FIAT window visor (left)
-Bumpstops



I'll keep you updated!

It's better to do it that way. Sooner or later Image Shack will be hacked by North Korean intelligence and your images removed or subverted.

Nice wheels!!

What are the 900 interior bits you mentioned? i've got a 900 and the interior looks pretty much like a Sporting?

Re: Cinq Abarth Black an yellow

they look quite the same indeed, only difrenc a sporting has the rpm gauge,
And the 900 has no centre consol, that was optional and that optional had no coin holder and was slightly boxier... Also the shifte difrebt, a 900 has a round knob with rubber sleve, the sporting hasher a beter shaped k,nob with leather sleve, and a push down to reverse system, just minor details, the first cinqs also had a black dash and trim instead of grey / dark grey so that wil also be converted.

Re: Cinq Abarth Black an yellow

When you put the new steering wheel in, did you fit the airbag too?

Re: Cinq Abarth Black an yellow

nice little cinq that needs lowering desperately now

And either some orange indicators or some clear side repeaters so they match each other.

Loving the instrument surround, how have i never seen anyone do that in all the years of being in cento-land!?!?!?

Considered doing the roof in black vinyl?

Re: Cinq Abarth Black an yellow

at the moment I have a lowered suspension kit but my wheels are so wide they are 1,5cm wider then the wheel arches :')
So I desperatly need bumpstops,
And thanks for the compliment on the instrument, I haven't seen another on who has done this,
I have thougt about black vinyl on the roof, and the orange blinkers are going to happen (y)
As you can see on the small image on the bottom of my first post, it wil be a classic 900 look 1.1 animal

Re: Cinq Abarth Black an yellow

Liking this one! Love black plastic bumper Cinqs and think would look good on a yellow car. Looking forward to some more pics.

Your plans will make it look a lot like mine!!

Re: Cinq Abarth Black an yellow

@Duncan do you have a sx by any chance... like @Inosience said the stock 900 didn't have a centre console. That was available as an extra. Just like a clovebox or these..

Re: Cinq Abarth Black an yellow

It has been a while....
There have been some hard work going on last weeks...
Starting with the interiour..
I startet by mounting black panels( front doors, and rear) then painted the roof black,
Fitted a Black dash, but found out that it was broken, so I painted my grey dash, (used motip Primer and cheap matte black paint) it turned out to be the same collor as original

So tomorrow I'm going to pick up a new foam piece for the seat, because mine died... And this week I'm going to weld the seat..
Also.. There is an upcomming Photoshoot with the lowered cinq
