Title: UTU just started
Post by: siwyaleeds on February 28, 2019, 08:21:21 PM
Hi guys
Just to show you how it is looks a like, when you start stripping 45yrs old "little one".
As you can see, bottom of the door was "repaired" as well as wheel arches. Now rusty has got new panels all round, I am just waiting for front outer inner wheel arches to arrive.
Enjoy watching :P

If you will be replacing front boot floor, please consider cutting hole for servo in the different area, as well as for the steering column...

You have literally changed the front end of the car. There does not appear to be front reinforcement (crash) beam. I suppose in the case of the 126, the spare is it!

Keep up the good work.

Wow that looks great m8, well done!
What color code is that, i just might use it on my bis....
Title: Re: UTU just started
Post by: siwyaleeds on September 01, 2019, 12:42:45 PM
That colour is ... FIAT no 127 (from 1973)? Acrylic. This is what is on the plate inside boot. It looks brighter on the pictures, in real is more darker, like ymmmh amarello cherry - I guess?

Not really mad, Chris. Just doing what needs to be done, really. It was big job right from start, and by the way - car is in the garage, so it is not me who is doing the JOB ;) I am just supplying parts, and beer sometimes :P

Thx, i am looking for a orginal darker shade, the Siam Red i had on my old bis was a bit too Ferrari-y to me (if that makes sense lol)

I know what you mean, so it will suit you well, I know your colour, and I think you will be pleased with result.
