update of my uno turbo

nearly ready for the road.... nearly lol, few more bits to finish but should be on the road this week only thing now is after a quick drive its making really loud scraping noises, im hoping this is rusty brakes, only way to tell is to drive it i suppose.








i ****ing love how it looks now tho its really dirty in these pics too, once iv given it a good clean it will look so lovely lol, can you tell im just in love with this car lol

one thing im unsure on is if to remove the fire extinguisher's from the roll cage and mount them behind the seats of something?

Yep, move them, you don't want them hitting you in the back of the head in an moment.

Fit one in front of the pasenger seat so that you can get to it if needed in a hurry

Rust and dent free Uno doors?



They're like looking for hens teeth! Be prepared for a long, hard search unless you're very lucky...

As for the bonnet, if you can wait a while I have a black bonnet on my Uno 70SX that I will be scrapping at some point. Wave a bit of cash under my nose and it's yours

What's wrong with your bonnet?

The golden rule of owning a Uno (and a classic Panda). If you see rust free doors in a scrapyard, whatever the colour, BUY THEM!

Yes, it is a black mk2 bonnet and they made a 70SX in both mk1 and mk2 form . I bought a black mk2 70SX last year to do up and put on the road, but then a mk1 70SX turned up so that's what I'm driving now. The mk2 70SX is going to be scrapped so I can use the parts for my 45S MPi conversion and keep some of the spares for my mk1 70SX.

Re: update of my uno turbo

that's stunning! can you not get the blue doors sprayed black? if the doors are rare surely it'd be worth it?
