Just needs a nice Alitalia paint job...

Might revive the company's fortunes?

Stick on go faster stripes, maybe, like people did in the 60s.

A couple of recent mods:

Dashboard dimmer switch neatly fits below rev counter.

Extended dipstick is a modified to fit the Tipo from a Seat Ibiza Mk 4.
It saves groping around between tubes and cables.

Nope.
It's all original Mk1, slightly modified.

I cut off the middle bar and removed the Fiat 4 bar badge.

Re: After many modifications and lots of TLC:

There isn't much left to do, but I'm sure I can always find something to add.
Yesterday I swapped the manual window mechanism on the driver's side for an electric one that I'd had hanging on the garage wall for a couple of years.


Switch is a cheapo Chinese, so I bought two, just in case.
Decided this was a handy place to mount it.


While I was at it, I fitted a light where the window winder handle went.
I'd had a pair of them 'in stock' for well over 40 years.
