You can probably make one up on the cheap with used parts John, however most insurers want a safety cert, which most companies won't produce against a kit they didn't fit themselves.

However should I ever go back to a Panda as daily driver I'd happily spend another 1k getting it converted like I did the Stilo

More than the cars value, but well worth it from experience

Re: Panda9001100

The problem with lpg is, you need someone who can install it properly or if you know how it works, you can do it yourself.
If the install isn't done properly, it can destroy (the valves of) the engine.

Here a pic, when the mechanic was checking the space of the valves.

At the left, the pump for the cruise control. At the right besides the sparewheel, the injectors of lpg. At the right of he bottom of the pic, a bottle of flashlube. This protects the valves, at least that's was is meant for.

When the selecta is in the way I want and my girlfriend is driving a lot in the future, this one is also going to run at lpg. It takes around 40.000km when the investation is paided back. At least for Panda's under the dutch rules of cars. Petrol costs around 1,70 for a litre and lpg 0,65 for a litre.

Re: Panda9001100

Yesterday I picked the car up.

Just did today little updates, like changing the locks (so I need 1 key to unlock all doors and start the car), sunblades form a seicento and a flate blade wiperscreen.

Friday I'm gonna clean the outside of the car to make it try shiny again.

Also made an appointment for welding at the car, under the backseat there's a little hole . And then going asap for a anti-rusttreatment dinitrol to prevent it will rust (further).

Hopefully next year a lpg-installation .

Re: Panda9001100

The Panda of my girlfriend is cleaned today:





New carpets for in the car. Too bad the color doesn't match exactly to the interior.

This is the way I bought the car:

And Seicento sidelights, which look much better than the standard orange ones:


And too bad original parts aren't avaible anymore, well then a RVS-fueltankbelt :

Re: Panda9001100

Nice pandas if you have a source for those RVS (I'm guessing that's some kind of stainless Steel) tank straps I think you might sell a few over in England, people have been using old seat belts to strap up there fuel tanks as no way of getting metal ones here.

Is that a heat shield between your rear silencer and fuel tank
Never seen one of those before!!

Re: Panda9001100

I don't know any better than it should be like this. Mine own Panda has the same:

And the brown sticky stuff, is an anti-rusttreatment dinitrol.

If anyone is interested in those stainless steel tank straps, let me know. I can ship those to england, if the exhaust form english versions is at the same side as the ones at overseas.

Re: Panda9001100

Thanks for the reply what would the fuel tank straps cost out of interest? As I said a few people have had problems getting them over in England. Was it it made especially for you or are they available pre made over there?

Re: Panda9001100

I don't know exactly, but I guess it will cost around 40,- till 50,-. The garage where I always come found someone who can make this.
