Re: New wheels!

Thanks. Probably just the same suspension updates you made to yours just to freshen it up abit, possibly lower it by about 30mm all round. Some Marea Polys aswell if I get the chance and get the front bumper re-painted, again!

Re: New wheels!

Spoiler Looking good Rigby, some good reflections after the wash/detail. I want to get into that side of things eventually, just need to buy a pressure washer and snow foam lance, it looks like so much fun!

Thanks, CG XXX Hardcore wax, but its also been machine polished with P1 and clayed.

As wellsy said, the spoiler. Couldn't be bothered messing around swapping the whole boot over so I just bonded it on instead.

Thanks, looks pretty good 12 year old paint IMO, better than some new cars at work anyway. The PW I got was from Argos and cost about 70, similar size to the Karcher we had that broke but much lighter and better all round. Snow foam is awesome stuff, it is great fun!

Re: New wheels!

My brother came round today to get some professional shots of the car, I took someone on my phone of the raw images from the camera screen before he processes and plays around with them. Just a couple previews.

Thanks. Thinking about it, when funds allow, would probably make the front a bit lower than the back to give it a bit of an angle.

Head gasket, possible warped head and also with the clutch making weird sounds it doesn't make any sense to repair it.

Re: New wheels!

Real shame, it really is a good looking fiat!

Already looking for another fiat or will you be "abandoning" us?
