Bella the Seicento.

I finally managed to get my arse in gear and make a members motors thread, a couple of people have asked me to make one, so here it is!

Car: Fiat Seicento Sporting Abarth
Colour: Red (and grey)
Engine: 1108cc SPI

Mods:

Audio:

Kenwood KDC-W4544U Headunit
Alpine SXE-69C2 6x9s on the Parcel Shelf
Unbranded 650w RMS 10" Sub
Unbranded 800w RMS Amp

Interior:

Red Seatbelts
Abarth Badges
Red and Black leather Gearstick / Handbrake gaitors

Exterior:

Abarth Badges - front and rear
Clear Front Indicator Lenses

Engine:

GSR Induction Kit
Janspeed cat-back Exhaust System
Red Rocker Cover


She has had other bits and bobs done to her aswell, like new headlights, etc...


the day i bought her:




a little bit of paint missing on the rear bumper, due to wrong primer:


i then began with the modding. little bits first, like the gear gaitors:


red seatbelts and 6x9s:


abarth badges on doorcards (they were a bit plain, wanted to cheer them up a bit :


also put one under the rev counter:


also put fiat abarth badges on the back and front (abarth overload, i know!) :



i then started on the engine mods, firstly with the Janspeed exhaust:




and then the rocker cover and GSR Induction Kit:

And thats the story so far!

Sorry about poor picture quality in some of them, rubbish camera phone!

Future Mods:

Get sprayed (i have some images i did on PS of what it will hopefully turn out like, will upload later)
Strut Brace
40mm Lowering springs
Maybe 13x7 Minilites

Thanks for reading!

Re: Bella the Seicento

well when i said i was getting it sprayed up, am getting a few things done...

i was thinking about that, but wasnt sure it would make too much red...
and im thinking either 40mm lowering springs, or save up for the 70/50 kit like you



Heres that PS of what i want her to look like:

Re: Bella the Seicento

yeah i was planning on doing the strips on the front bumper around the numberplate, as well as the recess around the back number plate. i did PS it on this pic, but it wasnt very clear so i got rid of it again...

and yeah sounds pretty tasty, theres a vid on youtube of it before i got the GSR called something like "Seicento Sporting Janspeed Cold Start", have a look.

and got the red seatbelts off a Cinquecento Sporting

I'm not keen on the bonnet but if the roof was painted to match think it would look much better.

Re: Bella the Seicento

Re: Bella the Seicento

not to be rude, but what you want comments on, its essentially a standard seicento with wrong clour bonnet and loads and loads of abarth badges, and normal run of the mill stereo upgrade..

Make some more changes and post them up.. and there will be more comments

How does it look tacky?

NosherCento you said you would post up a link to this thread on mine, looks good need to sort that bumper though, reckon you should cover the bonnet in fake carbon fibre would look quite cool i think.
