My Cinq Abarth: First Day to Last Day

Well the car was picked up yesterday so i've gotta do a thread to show how it came to me, and how it left..
It was a 88k Pinkish Cinq with Alternator seized, Family owned from new.
18months later it left me a 94k Red Cinq Abarth in almost mint condition!
On the right (Pinkuecento!)

After a good clean with Abarth Kit, Lowered 40mm and Sei Wheels Fitted

Abarth Arched, Mesh Blacked, GSR Kit, Red Rocker

PGT Calipers, RedDot 20Groove Vented discs & RedDot Pads

Lovely Pic

Smooth Boot

14" Speedlines Fitted

Lovely Lancia Cromodora 14" Wheels Fitted

Last Night I Had It: Waxed and Gleaming!





Video Number 1: Custom Laser Exhaust Sound and quick look round

Video Number 2: Engine Sound with 38mm TB, GSR etc etc
https://www.fiatforum.com/gallery/sh...hp?photo=26846
I have to say i am truly gutted that it's gone, i let them follow me to the motorway so they didnt get lost, he floored it behind me and ive never heard the sound of the engine before as im always driving it, i had to double check that it was the cinq! I do regret it already but its gone to a good guy so im sure it'll be looked after and at the end of the day i know i did the car justice!
Ill still be around, and i was speaking to my dad last night about a new project, as the Jetta is hopefully going tonight, so an empty drive! Rear Engine Cinq track car was an option but waste of money if you can only drive it 4/5 days a year, also Fiat 500 or VW T2 Camper to do up as we can do near on anything ie paintwork mechanical etc, just need something to learn welding on so 500/T2 are perfect!

Beautiful example of a Cinq Abarth... But I guess we all need to move on sometime from the Cento as good as it is!

Cheers

Re: My Cinq Abarth: First Day to Last Day

Damien, im now doing this..


I want to get another project but that has enough problems atm to keep me going! Wiring is f**ked up, like hazards only work when you have the headlights on, and horn doesnt work, left headlight doesnt work etc etc, but i might get another cinq soon and go for a totally different approach :P

Re: My Cinq Abarth: First Day to Last Day

Ello blu, long time no speak, where you been?! I did manage to get most of it in the back, not the other set of sporting rims though lol, still got loads.

No i didnt get the Polo, the guy was a bit of a east london boy and didnt know what history he had with the car, said he'd get it all ready for when i went up, then said he only had the current MOT, and he didnt know whos name the car was in, either his brothers or his girlfriend, and the car was insured in his friends name.. so alarm bells rang in my head for a hot car, a 2001 model thats got a crashed bumper and no paperwork..

Re: My Cinq Abarth: First Day to Last Day

Does anyone know what's happened to this or have any recent pictures of it? Was going through my old phone last night and had videos of the engine noise, miss this beast. Am getting some pictures put onto canvasses of all my nice cars and obviously this one is getting a few made up along with the cabby and jetta.

Since you have the fog lights like mine, where did you put the switch, what switch and do you have a wiring diagram?

Thanks.
