Likey or No Likey ?

Hi all,

I've done a few bits & bobs to personalise my HP100.

Most of the inspiration has come from this great forum. Started off with just painting the calipers red, then it was quickly followed by the door mirror covers. I also added some red wheel centre caps and sprayed the top of the gear lever red as it was pretty faded. I also added some red plastic trim to the front & around the indicators.

Then I went on a decal rampage ! lol
Put some decals on the front doors & right side of the boot. I had a little of some Italian stripe decal left over from my previous panda & hey presto, onto the bonnet it went. Added some window decals to the driver & passenger windows and finally changed the aerial to a stubby type as the origional looked like a fishing rod.

Just ordered a simple inexpensive induction kit also. No idea what I'll do after that.

I think its probably going to be a love it or hate it thing, but I love it.

Re: Likey or No Likey ?

Yes, have to agree with you on that. Wasn't convinced since i done it. Not sure it'll stay. See how I feel about it as time goes on.

Re: Likey or No Likey ?

Where did you get the cigarette lighter and Abarth ashtray from?

Re: Likey or No Likey ?

I quite like it, you could always paint the knob in the Italian colours

Re: Likey or No Likey ?

Thanks for the comments. The red trim I bought from ebay. Its just a long red sticky strip. The cigarette lighter I also got from ebay. The Ashtray holder thingy is just a badge stuck on it. simple, cheap but effective I think.

Re: Likey or No Likey ?

I like the trim and even the Italian stripe on the bonnet. But IMO the Abarth parts are a little overkill. Kind of like people putting M-Sport badges all over their BMW. Only my opinion though
