Cool Phase 2 + 3 (not 56k friendly)

Sun was out so would be rude not to take advantage and clean the car to show my latest progress It still needs a polish, but it aint the weather at the moment!

So here we go...







So as you can see, ive now lowered it 40mm with a Bilstein Streetline kit. Have also changed the rear suspension bushes with Powerflex ones Also as you can see, ive uprated the front brakes so it stops a hell of alot better. To top it off, its had a stud conversion with locking nuts and 6mm spacers to correct the offset (though another 3mm is needed to be the original offset).

Well what can i say, i love it Its like a little italian gokart!

Re: Phase 2 + 3 (not 56k friendly)

This is cinq modding at the highest level in my book, thoughful mods whilst retaining standard like looks.

Very good Luke!

Liam

yes mate.... the abarth apron doesnt effect the rear bumper mounts as it just screws onto the bottom of the bumper

Yea still wanna swap

And phase 4 would be changing the front wishbones with powerflex bushes along with a new steering rack. Should be starting soon fingers crossed!

Then for phase 5 i need to find a place that will retrim by buckets in vinyl so i can get on and sort out seats/harnesses/race floor

Phase 6 will be ICE

Phase 7 will be bodywork - gotta wait till the summer. Got lots of carpark scars dents dings etc. Photos make the car look 10x better unfortunately

Lastly phase 8 engine
