New wheels!

Finally some alloys!





Got myself a good bargain!

Next plan is smoked side repeaters and a HLX boot with spoiler, possibly some Marea Polys too.

Re: New wheels!

Very nice wheels, the classic look is always the best! Sadly a philosophy not quite understood by many of the contributors to FiatForum....

I slightly prefer the 7-spoke 15" HLX alloys on my Brava, but it's close!

Re: New wheels!

Sweeeeeeet!

Funny we have another Bravo here that had 7 spokers from a Brava, I think the 5 spokes looks better on these cars...

I agree, there are only a few aftermarket wheels that suit the Bravo/a.

I think I prefer the 5 spoke, makes these wheels even more of a bargain!

Re: New wheels!

So Rawb came over today to attack my cars paintwork, and nearly got defeated.

Very pleased with the results, especially the rear lights!

They do indeed, the only after market alloy I would have would be thin multi-spokes, but would still be my second choice.

All I need to do now is change the door handles, lower it and sort out the interior.

Re: New wheels!

Looks really good, still a bit dissapointed about a couple scratches - or the scratches that you had never seen before

Decided that I really love the colour of the car too, beats working on a green car any day of the week. - My shed manages to pop in for one photo (the worst part of the car too)

Try get some nice pictures tonight if you get some time

I don't know, but I do keep on the lookout for anything decent, supposed to be buying a car pretty soon, just got to contact the owner about it (and see if he wants to sell it) - My brothers taking my Punto to learn to drive in soon.

Thanks, Im pleased with the outcome. The lights surprised me, they weren't even cloudy before! We should have got a picture of the 50/50.
