Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

so did you sell [John the CDA that was on your car... I might have just read your 100hp through lol... I notice the standard wheels you had have the same tyres as mine does, i know John bought some wheels from someone so maybe it was you...

Did you sell the 100hp in the end?

Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

Well tried to fit the gaiter... The elastic strip was totally fubar so have ordered some new stuff on Amazon prime so should be here 2moro. If it arrives during the day I'll sort it when Mrs Blu gets back from work. My last Amazon prime parcel didn't arrive until about 10pm so don't hold your breath....

Yes, the two front wheels came from him and so did the CDA

Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

So one of the tabs on the ring base for the gaiter is snapped off, that will be why it came out so easy then lol... I'll keep my eye out for pandas in scrappers so I can grab another sometime.

That said, it's all fitted and looks pretty decent.

If you are still after a name for the car we called it Baymax which me and Beth thought was rather fitting

Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

yeah i know mate... I only watched Big Hero 6 last Friday for first time. I do like it but i think Amy wants a more Star Wars themed name, not put much thought into it yet though.. I don't mind Baymax but we will see, I will of course update the thread when its decided.

Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

I guess "Jabba the Hut" is a bit long for a car name.

From here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272742156603
They are good quality, its what was on Amy's 500 before we got the 100hp, I also have a set for Charmander. Luke and Amber have since also got a set and all are tip top. I like them mainly cause the the makers name and BS number are such a light grey that you just cant really see them unless you go in to look.

And the italian flag plate holders are from Poland lol.. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/262970150681

Nice, I'm not convinced the plate holders will work on the front of the Alfa with the curve but might buy some anyway and see

Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

I dunno, i think as its curved you should buy some holders.. even 3M tape which is miles better than the cheap crap stuff that comes with plates struggles to hold plates on a curve.. The cheap stuff that comes with the plates, dont even bother using that, Lukes rear plate is coming off and thats on a flat bit lol. 3M stuff held them on the 500 good and proper but hardly any curve to where the plates go. I guess you could spend a while trying to curve the plate to match the bumper though... Hmmmmm

In other news, noticed from time to time the starter solenoid sticks open for a couple of seconds after starting.. Not really a big issue yet but ordered a genuine fiat re-manufactured starter.
