Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

Decision has been made while I couldnít sleep last night.
Iím going to use and enjoy the car over the summer, then during the winter months get the bodywork seen to and just all done in one go.

This will include underneath as there are a couple of bits underneath the car which will need attention soon so Iím going to nip it in the bud before it needs a whole new floor in.

Iím going to set up a ĎPunto fundí, basically put a couple of hundred quid away a month and get a wad of cash saved up and get the bodywork as close to 100% as possible

The car mechanically is perfect and I have no intentions of selling it, so would like to spend a bit of money and get the car right.

This will include-

Tidying up any bits underneath that are looking like they are starting to go crusty
Re- paint the front and rear bumpers as there are stone chips on front/ light scrapes on he rear
Paint the bonnet and fit a new fiat badge I have
Drivers side rear arch repair

I have a mate who owns a powder coating place so Iíll get him to do the alloys properly, whip the rocker cover and calipers off and get thwm powder coated.

The car is in very very good condition for its age, so thought Iíd take advantage of a good base to just go and make it as best as I can.

Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

The Punto definitely deserves that sort of love being lavished on it.

Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

Some lovely 90s Fiats there... particularly like the Tipo "Brio catalogue" wheeltrims (same as mine) and the way the Tempra proudly displays its craptastic original 13" wheeltrims!

I still feel your car is let down (at a show) by the alloys instead of the genuine ELX steel wheels and wheeltrims... you had brand new tyres put on them so why not use them and display them? You'd enjoy the driving more as well with lighter steering!

Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

Tbh Iíve been thinking the same. Might swap them over for a wee while and alternate between the alloys and steels.

The tempra, uno and tipo are owned by the same guy- a mate of mine who also has a marea 20v and has just donated his rotten tipo 16v to be restored.

Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

Actually if I'm being an anorak / fascist I should also point out that an H-reg Tipo Mk1 would not (AFAIK) have had 14" steel wheels, even with cool wheeltrims!

Your mate is welcome to correct me of course...

Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

Set of genuine new old stock fiat wind deflectors on their way.
Donít know if Iíll fit them though.
Have them on both my other cars and theyíre handy but not sure if theyíll suit the car

Been for a drive- a local disused bus stop has recently been burnt out so stopped for a pic to make the car look good.

Wind deflectors not going on, donít like them. Happy with the car how it is

Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

That's a brilliant model! How much did you pay for it?

Got these service sticker reminders made up to use on both the 500x and the punto.
Think these go on the door pillar when you open the drivers door but just another wee touch.
