At long last, Sky Panda has his own thread :D

I acquired this little beastie through the classifieds here this summer.

On collecting him he had a poorly wheel bearing and a very blowy exhaust.

I drove him (carefully!) from Sheffield via (can't remember where) and onto johndragonman's where he sorted out the problems and adjusted a few other issues - like the fog lamps not working!

Next trip to John's we fitted the bonnet and boot lid from BEX for that authentic two-tone shed look :eek:

John also checked and fitted the new trailing arms as you can see they were gonners!

Weather this was due to the lowering springs it came fitted on I don't know, it sure holds the road well though. I would like to fit a set of more "Fiaty" alloys, I've just not got around to choosing a set yet.

I've thought a lot about Sky and to be honest as rare as he is I have no interest in keeping the standard engine (especially with at least one cross threaded spark plug), I'll be looking out for conversion, probably to a 1242 8v, that is a great engine with lovely gearbox perfectly suited to the panda with good torque and long gears.

If I am going to have a 16v I think I'll just get a Panda with one fitted to be honest - seems a lot less hassle that way?

He will get some replacement doors and a tart up next year, he's in the queue behind Gertie and Fizzle in that regard.

He may also get some alfa seats too - I just need to buy a set!

Anyway thread started and a bit of history and a few plans to start with.
