1.4 Uno Turbo'd Seicento Rebuild Thread

As a few of you may know, ive bought a nail of a car... I myself knew this, but i wanted to spend some time, money and effort to get it back in a show & stand worthy condition.

It was owned on here by 'wardy25' and as far as i can tell he spent a fortune on her... It was later sold, and then neglected... So far i understand that the car was left off the road for ages, owned by chavs, and thrashed, and thats only when its actually been running...

After it being sold on and on, i ended up snapping up the car...

The car has loads of problems, which i knew prior to me buying her, but she does come with loads of cool stuff...

The interior is full leather, its got powder coated abarth wheels, skirts spoiler, uprated brakes, and the main thing.... a tasty 1.4 uno turbo engine... which i think is the MK2 engine.

The car also comes with panels hanging off, cold start problems, faded paint, wiring faults, and more holes in the exhaust than swiss cheese....

So as a good thread goes.... here are a few pictures of the car in its current condition...

Hopefully in the near future, it wont look anything like it does today...

Re: 1.4 Uno Turbo'd Seicento Rebuild Thread

Lol i know... its bad...

Well im trying to get her running properly at the mo, as i can live with a naff looking front end, but cant live without a car that doesnt run lol...

Having a lot off help from 'Louie Bee' on here, so hopefully she should be up and running off the key pretty soon!

I have been around all the local brakers for new front panels, but nobody seems to be braking yellow seicento's... so the front will have to stay as it is until i can get hold of the panels

Ive put a post up in the 'wanted' section on here, but if anyone does hear of anyone breaking a yellow sei, the could you direct them my way haha!

Need Bonnet, Both Wings all yellow, and possibly the same bumper as mine currently has, although i could live with mine how it is as it can be easily tidied up.

Haha the bungie cord was holding the windows closed... but a trip to the scrappy has sorted that out now :P... Finally the car is fully locked...

As for the exhaust, im off to pick a welder up... ordering the stainless on ebay when i get back from the road trip....

Think i will be visiting custom chrome in the near future to see if they can mod the pipework for the induction, so it clear's the new bonnet (once i get one lol)

CC actually sells exhaust tube on eBay, so you may be able to pick up locally for the same or less if they like you

Re: 1.4 Uno Turbo'd Seicento Rebuild Thread

I have a pair of the proper indicators lying about here if you want them?


Just tried to ring you and tell you.... They are clear and would easily be tinted to match.

Thanks

Re: 1.4 Uno Turbo'd Seicento Rebuild Thread

Yea they are. Mk1 indicators are smaller, I noticed it had the mk1 units on but forgot to mention it.

Thought CC were based in weddington? Still there when I went last...

Thanks

Re: 1.4 Uno Turbo'd Seicento Rebuild Thread

Ill see if my friend still has his totalled yellow sei. If he does Ill ask to nick the panels off it, but I live a fair distance from you I think. Not sure as to the condition either as he crashed into his house... XD
