My Faux-barth

Hello!

Long time no post, hope everyone is well ♥️

I've been hard at work ruining my fiat since I last posted it, so here we go!

Since last post where it looked decidedly.. half finished, I've been ruining it even more.

She now has an Abarth bum, with side skirts on the way, diffuser extension and a front lip and a custom rear spoiler. Got some obnoxious underglow lights, a wooden floor in the boot, and the most wildly impractical gear knob I could find 😊

Thank you! Yes that's it nestled on the right! Someone actually managed to hit it up the back too, which is how I came by the Abarth rear end. Small blessings I suppose.

Cant believe its been that long!

What happened to your front bumper? I will say that you accomplished your goal, it looked really good until I say the condition of the front bumper and that gear knob. The shift boot doesnít look that bad. Is that a cutting board in the hatch? And, what happened to the FIAT logo?

Hello! Nothing has happened to the front really, its got a splitter at the bottom and the bit above it is wrapped.

The boot has got wooden flooring - my boot mat was horrible and stained, and this worked well as a (cheap) alternative.

The Fiat logo is still there, they're just black carbon badges.

Thank you!

Ok... I was sure it was broken at first. The wooden floor looks retro. If the cargo cover is $90 new, than I donít want to know how much a new mat costs. The all weather trunk floor liner accessory costs (I maybe wrong) over $130. The carbon (what I assume are stickers) look cool. Iíve seen badge stickers in dark blue as well to make it look like it has the OG blue badges.

Haha thankfully still in one piece!

Yeah, all of the Fiat stuff was expensive, and the cheaper things weren't very nice to look at. This cost me £15 and a few hours

Yeah they are stickers, can get any colours you want. Lots of glittery ones!
