interior panels and engine fired!
« on: June 06, 2006, 09:15:32 PM »
 thought that would get your attention, Ive decided to give my collection of 80's bmx's a rest for a while and turn my attention back to my beloved puddle jumper... after 4 days knee deep in filler dust its nearly done( 2 more patches to rub down and 1 rear quarter and the roof to prime..

and well Im knackered!!! so im looking for a little feedback/ moral support -so check it out comments gratefully recived (be kind though its got to be flatted and primed yet before paint!!!

Thanks chris its going to be the original blue with all the chrome bumpers etc it should look cool... I want it understated so it doesnt look like much has been done on it (until you put it next to a standard one...)

should have it in paint within a few weeks all being well (IE no more BMX/expensive record purchases)

long time no post - during a very quiet night shift at work I spent a good few hours perusing the web for pics of cars to motivate me to get on with the fiat as it only needs 2 bits of welding, painting and putting back together the sh*t lowering out of it!

so I got the metal spitting b4stard I refer as a "welder" after several false starts manged to create a rather ugly weld on the 2 1/2 foot long crack in the front end of the car (the panel flanges where welded under neath+ welds dressed and primed after this shot... deffo more to come but its a start as they say.....really must get him back on the road...
