Re: Fiat 500 Sport "Alpha Bravo" Project by TRIBE

Being an "action sport enthusiast" myself I'd have the following to suggest:

Plenty of easy to access storage
Extra 12v sockets everywhere
Boot lip that you can sit on for changing
AC invertor with easy to access sockets
Wet storage (wetsuits / towels etc)
Easy to use roof bars / rack surfboards kayaks mountains bikes etc
Don't use deep pile carpets, they are a pain to clean
Ground clearance is important, a lot of places that action takes place often have rough tracks for getting to the car park
Decent all weather all terrain tyres - saves getting the drive wheels bogged down in mud and sand
Heated seats are a must (Helz I love you for introducing me to the joys of heated seats after a cold wet days in the mountains!!!)

However I get the impression that whilst you think you are targeting the "action sport enthusiast" you will actually be targeting "Street or Urban" sport enthusiasts that like a hot hatch for cruising and posing, will then pull up somewhere and whip out a skateboard or start jumping building to building "parkour" style.

I am not down on you or your idea, just trying to give constructive feedback that helps you target the right people and places :slayer

Re: Fiat 500 Sport "Alpha Bravo" Project by TRIBE

Ok.

This is a forum full of FIAT drivers and enthusiasts, and we do enjoy seeing a build take place.

But the first post does read a bit like something that had been written by marketing people to be copied and pasted into several forums, ie a bit spammy, hence the hostility.

Also, the thread should have some in the 500 section (probably).

Re: Fiat 500 Sport "Alpha Bravo" Project by TRIBE

For those of you still interested:
As SEMA nears, our show car continues to transform into the vision set forth by Tribe. Louie and Danny from L-Con have fabricated and installed the box. Vinny and Kelvin from Tribe helped out with the installation of the box and the seats.

The box installation required a false-floor to be put in, a sliding rack to provide the pathway for the box to move, and will eventually have drawers installed to hold parts and tools.

The seats were fitted with katzkins upholstery by Danny and will help make the interior pop and match the rest of the car.

The Fiat is on its way to being done and we couldn't be happier with the way it's coming along.

Is that black leather and green fabric? What are you making? A dentists waiting room on wheels?

I remember this thread from a couple of months ago. The build thread still really only shows a keyboard and some fabric

I meant to post on here because I remembered SEMA was a few days ago. Looks alright, I'd lose the snowboard thing though

Re: Fiat 500 Sport "Alpha Bravo" Project by TRIBE

I still think the point has been missed with this build / slight modification to a car......

Good luck getting any where near a ski resort - cars too low to get chains on

Good luck getting to the beaches off the beaten track for the more "out there" waves.

Ridiculous. Obviously a fair amount of work and effort involved but absolutely ridiculous.
