Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

Well as some people already know recently bought the 100hp off @Freebo.

Didn't start a thread right away as we needed to sell the 500 first so Mrs Blu could swap her insurance onto it. Which cost a whopping 7 extra on her insurance... So happy with that.

This was cheeky snap at services on way home the day I picked it up.

Got it insured couple of weeks ago once my cousin agreed to buy the 500. But it really needed a clean. So yday my cousin came to get the 500, I serviced her fellas bravo while they were here. And I cleaned the 100hp with help of @Sweex. Busy Sunday!!

I bought some of that Dragons Breath stuff. Not cheap but brilliant stuff! This video is after a jetwash, snowfoamed, jetwash, hand wash and another jetwash. Stuff just melts all the fallout and you rinse it and already the paint started to feel much much better and a more brighter white

So after that, we washed it again, then clayed it, polished and sealed it. Also the first little change, new number plate holders and pressed plates.

Here's the results

Will do the inside sometime this week hopefully. Need to buy a new fairer for gearstick, been reading about that sounds like more of a gaff than it ever needed to be, classic fiat

So it's back with the oem airbox atm but have the induction kit John had on it also. Nothing much will happen to it bar cleaning and maintenance really as we only really got it as it has 4 doors and we are expecting a little one so wanted 4 doors instead of 2 like the 500. Just a few things I wanna tidy up at bit like The gear knob and fairer.

The wife was pretty upset about selling her 500 but I can report that now she is driving the Panda she likes it and even said it's a better car, result! I always fancied a 100hp too

Glad you like it! I must admit I always wanted to give it a proper clean and get the fallout off but I cant really clean cars at my house and generally lack all motvation to go to my dads to do it

Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

its a big job a proper clean, defo not a side of road job!! And to be fair it looked really good before, when i picked it up. Nice to get it all proper clean though and the plates made a big difference, really liking the holders with italian flag colours along bottom - so much so i got a set for the old panda too lol

Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

might go back on, not sure yet... kinda tempted to try make it fit the iggy, looks almost ideal tbh but would have to offer it up.

I can't believe you still have that on there.. . just stick a cheapo pod filter on the pipe and be done with it

Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

yeah but you do know its gonna disintegrate and the engine will eat it, probably unsuccessfully, eventually right? lol. I'd rather run no filter at all

Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

It's still in the same condition it was when we fitted it, and still secure.
I'll replace it with something more suitable when I have some ready cash, but right now our survey says 'nope'.

New leather gaiter, much nicer leather than the torn oem one... Can't decide whether to change the gear knob or just paint the top part so it look better.. decisions decisions..

I painted the top part of mine a couple of years ago. Stayed with silver to match the rest of the interior trim

Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

i was thinking that... did you manage to find a good match or did you paint all the silver trim at same time. Worried about it not matching which will annoy me to high heaven

I just did the knob cap with some left over paint from another project and it turned out to be a pretty good match actually. Can't remember the paint code or anything unfortunately
