Re: Different centre caps

Nice find, Stormi. They would fit straight on?

Think these ones would fit straight on?

Re: Different centre caps

I think outer diameter are in these Abarths I linked, 50 mm, so
should be the same. When you scroll down my link, there are
models said wich this package is fitting, though New Bravo
is not mentioned.

Found the link from the French Bravo Forum

Bravos center cap is round from under, so check the diameter
first

Re: Different centre caps

Or... buy a sheet of 3d carbon and attach them on your original center
caps. First clean the old badge, attach the 3d carbon sheet, Start
from the center by pushing the sheet with your finger, do round
circles to the badges edges. Finish with a sharp paper knife by
cutting the the rest via badges lines and ... Zong !

Center caps carbon style Should match your Black Machine
perfectly

Not the best pic and a dirty car but something anyway ..

Thanks wegi thanked for this post

Re: Different centre caps

Are you planning on doing the front and rear badges and the steering wheel badge aswell though? I'm not going down the "is it cool to put Abarth badges on a Fiat" debate again (God No! ) but would the car look right with a mixed branding?

Either way, pics when finished please!

Re: Different centre caps

Hey Andy, I have some fairly cool black and white scorpion front and rear badges to go on. Nothing on my car will be trying to pass it off as a proper Abarth, just has the little scorpion dude on it

Re: Dirty Bravo...............

That is one sexy ass car you've got yourself there. Seriously, one of the smartest looking bravo's ever, and the badges really suit it. The steering wheel looks especially epic!

Have you done any engine mods to it at all?

Re: Different centre caps

Well I just bought the ones 2nd down in my 3rd post, and they don't fit at all... You guys could have told me the wheel nut cover's "FIAT" emblem cannot be replaced.

Anyone got any suggestions or have I just wasted 25?

Re: Different centre caps

Gonna have to return them. I thought "two tone alloys" were the name of the black and silver ones... but for some completely stupid reason they aren't.

Think i'll have to do some other thing...

Re: Different centre caps

They're on my wheels!
Decided to get the jigsaw out and cut all the clips off the centre caps to make them flat on the bottom, took the FIAT badges off the bolt covers, and glued the new Abarth ones in place.
Looks pretty good, i'll take some pictures of them and post them.

Infact, i'll just make a thread all about my new baby.
