Panda 100HP project (cooperman style!)

Right thought I would start a thread as there are a few mods happening to my panda and wanted somewhere to have them all in one place! I have owned my 100HP since 2010 and love it! She gets serviced at fiat evry year and had belts and water pump replaced last year. I wanted to start modding her but not go OTT as been there and done it before! Hopefully you guys like it!
So this is what I have done:

Day one cleaned!

Really happy with the way the car is coming on! The rear end is looking nice and fat, will be looking at getting a silver rear fog light bulb to balance up the lights and looking at spacers the same as Demi has to fill the arches a bit more. All 4 tyres will be getting replaced also for Toyo T1R's as got some cheap front tyres put at the mo and had enough of them!! Lesson learnt!

Re: Panda 100HP project (cooperman style!)

I'm sure I read somewhere that it's more involved than just changing the rear fog light bulb if you want to balance the look of the rear lights. The red part is actually a lense with a clear bulb behind it (I think). You'll need to buy a rear light cluster for a LHD car and then you can fit silver/red bulb.

Re: Panda 100HP project (cooperman style!)

Looking good! Can't wait to pick mine up.

Like the idea of the rear cluster. I changed my Puntomk2 ones for the Mk2b jot get the clear light parts. I'm debating using a flyeye type kit to just go dark on mine along with the headlamp

Re: Panda 100HP project (cooperman style!)

I have had a busy morning, I have done a update to my induction kit mod and have replaced the alloy pipe with a carbon one. Think it suites the engine bay a lot better and matches the other black pipes.

Ok at this point I have to hold my hands up and confess it is still the alloy pipe just with 4D carbon wrap, only coat 6 for a big sheet and think it is bang on! here is the pipe:

What was interesting while i had the alloy pipe removed when you look inside of it you can see marking from bits in the air flow so seems to be doing its job very well!

Like all things as I had a bit of carbon wrap left over thought i would give the interior wing mirror covers a go! I am just a bit impressed with the finish! Just not sure if its to much or just looks cool!

More than one part number due to colour of the inner plastics changing several times (visible when the boot is open).

Best check with the dealer you order from
