  • Second attemp ratlook car

    Hi,

    I've introduced myself before, in this topic:
    https://forums.mightycarmods.com/for...e-from-holland

    I haven't been on the forum for a while, because shortly after introducing myself i ran my car into the back of another car. That pretty much killed it, so it went to the scrapyard.

    But i decided not to give up and start a new project. So i bought this tiny little fiat Seicento for next to nothing and got going. It's a funny little car to work on. Everything is small and easy to handle, and all the parts are cheap as chips. Good fun! So far i've changed all the filters and fluids and made some cosmetic changes. The car is in pretty good condition, so no work to be done on brakes or anything.

    This is how i bought it:

    As it stands now:












    I'll keep you posted on new things happening!

              So today i installed a pod filter. Put it together with some stuff i had laying around and it got together quite ok.

              It doesn't make a difference performance wise (air temperature dropped about 7 degrees celsius), but i like the sound. Plus it was fun putting it together, so an afternoon wel spend.

                Put on the mirrors from a Cinquecento today,because i like them better then the Sei's. And also i put on some wheel arch covers from a Vauxhall Corsa.

                    So for extra awesomnes I have put on a bonnet scoop. A massive improvement in power, as you might expect.

                    (just to be sure, all of this is just for laughs. Not doing this to honestly expect performance improvement or anything.)

                        if the red thing is holding the bonnet down, have you considered bonnet pins? or oversized high performance bonnet pins?

                          No, it's not holding it down. It closes fine in the way it's intended. But it is supposed to look like it's holding it down though.

                            Put leather straps instead.
