Re: my new bravoooo.

upupupupupupupudate time

a few little things have happened in a short while, She's reached 60,000 miles whilst driving around cornwall but yeah, thats the only interesting news

but we do have these photos

AT LONG LAST! i have a parcel shelf
10 from a HGT scrappy bravo , came with the 6x9's too

but as you can see, these speakers are well beyond their good days, although they did work quite well

so out they came and make way for these

2 from a carboot sale also a good 440w so i cant complain
whilst we're on the topic of speakers, i got some more FLI speakers for the front, so now i have 9 speakers


I'm going for a Euro theme for this car, so Pressed plates were needed and out they came


so nice
i also found these babies at the scrapyard, the marea was literally just put there and for a bargain price of 20 i had to get them!



and ofcourse the night shot


Down here in Yeovil, there is some craze with wrapping your rear lights in tights, i decided to try this but im unsure about it, My mother said it looks like a bee

also on the subject of things daft, my dad found this in the attic, he said it was out of his Cortina Mk2, used to indicators and brake lights, but because im immature, it had a better use
Well yeah, thats all newish stuff, this completes it i guess




I also have these umm photoshop/MS paint edits for you to decide on
Pink

Lowered and smoothed, kinda

Or Blackish wheels?

Re: my new bravoooo.

Stop now, please leave the poor thing alone....

It started out as a attractive, tidy, original Bravo with potential.

Then you started sorting out mechanical issues to give it a chance at another 5 years life looking like a nice example of a cared-for 90's Fiat.

And now you're spending all your time and money mucking it up, turning it into a typical, tacky, tasteless teenage shed.

It's not an Alfa, it's not a Corsa, it's not a surf bus, it's not an Ibiza rave club, it's not going to be a Euro custom show-winner.

Please please please ... dump the stickers, rewind it a few months and just get it looking tough, tidy and tasteful.

Re: my new bravoooo.

I think that was a little uncalled for

When originally setting out to do the van project, suggestions of converting a car resulted in strange looks. A custom van gave quite a few the giggles and said it couldn't be done

Better still stuff like this doesn't have to cost an arm or a leg. To buy a car, build the van fully and include new parts cost approx 500 in total

Theres tonnes of potential, just needs time. So I say keep it up, youre putting new life into an old car

9 speakers?!

If I were you, I'd keep the car red, iron out the dents, use the non black wheels and get some coil overs (or in my case, 3 sets of springs and shocks )

Have a look at this thread, theres some interesting stuff in it

Finally, someone had to tell me something negative

I have been thinking of removing the stickers, except the front FF one, the tights have just came off as my brake light bulb has died, The boot is about to get tidied as my brother wants the red flashy light thing for his punto.

I'm just trying to make a smart looking car,im not tyring to make it look chavvy or tacky, i want it to look tidy.

I've also am having a rethink about the alloys, I'm trying to get some old school BBS wheels, or maybe some HGT alloys

but on my list of things to do.
replace front grille
lower, got some 60mm springs, but the company i got them from recommend shortened dampers, so i might be returning them for some 40's

Still find a passenger airbag to tidy up the dash
cc'd mirrors
mk2 clocks


although, i've been looking at alot of other cars to buy this week! so might be getting another motor

my bravo could do with a better owner, it doesn't like me

Re: my new bravoooo.

thanks man, my mate had it done on his mk1 punto, and it looked quite good, maybe because his was black, i dont think it goes too well with the red :/

i do love my car, i spend alot of time cleaning her and sorting her out, i like to be different aswell as everyone down here drive dubs (vw's) slammed to the ground with rusty bonnets and banded steels with stretched tyres, I wouldn't do any of that to my Bravo, its too good to be like that.

A 15 year old (96 plate) with 60k on the clocks, she's a keeper

Re: my new bravoooo.

Update? more of a goodbye message
1996-2012
I sold this car back in october to some polish geezers for 550, tax'ed and mot'd with 61k on the clocks.

couple months on..... My dad texts me saying he's seen it parked up, so i thought "great, would be nice to see the old girl"

Get there, its left jacked up with the original jack, wheel missing, snapped wishbone, snapped hub, bent disk, dented panel and a cracked bumper.

No idea what happened, made me sad to see her like that so i went home thinking "it'll be fixed"


Few weeks later, my mate sends me this


SCRAPPED! :'(

R.i.p Bravo, i miss you!
