100hp Black - Nuneaton

Nutter in a black 100hp with white Abarth decals down the sides

Keep spotting you in and around Nuneaton, last time at the Ropewalk roundabout on Saturday or Sunday.

Often parked outside the scooter shop on Heath End Road

Anyone on here?

If so, I want to do some mods to my 100hp, looks like you may have some advice.

Re: 100hp Black - Nuneaton

they all have tinted windows, not front ones mind. There's one I occasionally see parked at a house on the same road a bit closer to the mini island (arbury road/croft road).

what sort of mods are you looking at doing? I've had two 100hps

Re: 100hp Black - Nuneaton

Was thinking about a carbon wrap for the roof, powdercoated wheels & coilovers.

Also was considering some engine mods for a bit more power (air filter, magneti marelli exhaust) but they'll come later.

Do you know any good powder coaters? There's one in Brum that's pretty good for the money I think.

Any other suggestions? Did you do any mods to yours?

Re: 100hp Black - Nuneaton

I think it may be Kritip you keep spotting . Hes the only one I know that has very dark rear tints. He keeps mentioning about putting a stainless exhaust on it, but he wants to do other things too .

Thanks

if you're local, there's a place in longford, coventry called BGpenny ( http://www.bgpenny.com/contact_us.html ) I was going to use them for my spitfire wheels before I bought new alloys, I haven't used them but they look quite professional. I sprayed the wheels on mine in satin black, fitted a gsr induction kit (highly recommended, tunnels have never been as fun in the abarth) and changed the standard speakers for front and rear components, and a few other subtle things the car still floats around nuneaton, owned by an older couple though, the only things left to do were lowering and a gloss black vinyl roof wrap but I traded in



what colour is your panda? I saw a blue one on the A444 a couple of weeks ago by the griff island

Re: 100hp Black - Nuneaton

It's quite likely I was at Griff roundabout at the weekend.

I've just ordered some fiat forum stickers, so I'll be more visible in the future.

How durable was the finish on your sprayed wheels? I did consider it for a bit, but I was put off by others.

This is mine:

Re: 100hp Black - Nuneaton

It'll be you I saw then!


regarding the wheels...very, I sprayed them with the tyres on, also painted the insides, everytime I had new tyres fitted there wasnt a single scratch, only needed to touch them up from time to time due to stone chips. It's around the bulkington area if you manage to see it one day
