Re: Fiat Bravo 1.4 12v 1997 Degas Grey - Modified

Thanks Wil

Some of you know I had an fueling problem recently. I changed the fuel filter then relays then injector. The Injector did the trick and car seems ok again now. Im crossing my fingers and touching my woods

A thread was here: https://www.fiatforum.com/bravo-brav...tuttering.html

I was thinking about setting a small yearly budget for the car that I can use to replace the odd part before they fail. After all the car is 12 years old, replacing things like the lambda, bonet latch, injector before they fail could help keep the cars reliability.

Oh yeah the wing I got by post was a total let down. There was a wing in the scrap yard. I waited to see what the first was like and it was crap, went back to the scrap yard and the other is now damaged I should have bought it

Keep an eye out for Bravos in my colour please! Its a very rare colour!

Parts Wanted!
1.Passenger Wing In colour code 623/A Metallic Degas Grey.
2.Boot glass to take OEM spoiler.
3.Leather or Dark Mk2 Interior Solid colour Grey/Black door cards.
4.Mk2/V2 Sunroof.
5.Marea Centre console.

And others not so important:
-Original CD head unit.
-Pollen filter and housing
-Red Cinq sporting seatbelts
-Mk1 Front fog light switch bar

i hope your pretty skinny if you want cinq seat belts, i had them in my old punto, and fat people had to sit in the back (there quite short belts)

i would also advise you to glue on your spoiler, tiger seal it on and it wont budge trust me, it seems completly waste of time to change a window when gluing it on will probably hold it better.
Thanks Adrian Bravo thanked for this post

Re: Fiat Bravo 1.4 12v 1997 Degas Grey - Modified

Was getting steamy rear clusters and a bit of water in the boot recently. So last week I took my clusters off and silicone sealed the back of the cluster. Ever since my lights have not steamed up and the boot is dry.

I put silicone round the foam seal on the inside edge then round on top of the foam seal closer to the inside edge again. Then round the base of the bolts.

Thank You Jug, couple of bits to go until its finished. Spoiler next I think.

I will get pictures tomorrow. Its grey leather from a Mk1 HGT that had only done 40000 miles. It is in mint condition and both heated seats work. Smells lovely

Just a thought if you want to make your exhaust manifold look as good as the rest of the engine go for a coating

I was going to paint it in silver exhaust paint, but didnt bother incase I broke things trying to get it off. needs doing though.

When my exhaust fails im getting a long life powerflow cat back made up.

Will you be going for a noisy one or quiet? I have a stainless cat back by MIJ which has a small middle box and a small back box, both straight through. If you are interested I can make a video to show the 1.4 with a proper exhaust

Have a look in the garage I will put some pics in there. One tip for when it's done is to double check all the brackets they use as crap supports will cause damage themselves quicker than you would expect.

Id really like to hear that if you could make a vid I was going to see what the experts say. I want it to sound good but i dont want to try and make it something it is not.
