    hi all, this is my project at the momment seicento(2000)yellow sporting spi i payed £100 for the car with timing belt failure it did have mot and tax when i had it, it was completely standerd and had an idea so i photoshoped it with the wheels off my 1991 polo gt, lowered.

    so decided to start the project with not much funding its taking a long time Sad

    its had a few new parts as it would of failed its mot:
    .brake pipes .flexy pipes front .discs & pads .wipers .both wishbones .both rear shocks and few more things cant think off hand.

    the plan is slow, low and loud (audio)

    exterior mods:

    .wheels. 13" x 7 starmags (black, flake)
    .suspention. rear spax, front custom coilovers 90mm
    .rolled arches.
    .lamin-x. front lights
    .bumper. magane splitter
    de-wipered, black mirrors.

    interior mods:

    .seats. abarth
    .steering. momo
    .door pods. rear speaker pods with vibe 2way slick, fronts are in the making with vibe comps
    .sub box. custom made tuned to 29hz
    .sub. massive audio qc15.2
    .amp. for sub, kenwood kac-9104d 900w rms
    .amp. for comps, old jbl 50w rms
    .headunit. alpine cda-9855r

    still needs loads doing but im hoping for atleast 140db will be finding out at modified nationals Smile

    hope you enjoy heres a few pics

    cheers mike

    ...I was hoping you would say that you would be starting fresh on it, which means I could have bought the suspension and wheels off you! Razz I want those wheels!!

    Can't wait to see the pics! I'm sure the car will look nice!

    Have a look at the 'Latest News' section and see about the Auto Italia show thats coming up...Hopefully you'll be there?

    busy...

    Post  M1C4A3L on Tue Apr 19, 2011 12:02 pm

    bloody hell..you've been busy lol 3 different coloured Sei's in the space of as many months! At least you can call yourself a true Seicento enthusiast now!

    I love them in silver...very nearly went to look at one before i bought my black one (wish I had now).

    What exactly do you do for a living? you seem very good with fibreglass etc...

    Will this silver one pass an MOT with smoked headlamps?

    As for wheels...I am VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY...VERY interested in them. how much are we talking? - at the moment I have the basic sporting wheels, which are peeling and I think one is buckled. pm me the price Smile

    Alright I made my own coilovers on the front using shortened struts by 30mm to stop it bottoming out so about 110mm-120mm drop on the front managed to get 10mm off the top mount aswell
    The rear just had 30mm drop springs but chopped a few coils out but not to much so the spring still sat in the seats firm once jacked up the sound system lowered the rear about 30mm which was nice Smile

    The car has been sold some time ago now I do miss it sometimes but never mind

    I havnt been on here for ages
