hi everyone I've myself a very nice GTV that I picked up a few weeks ago,I've been on here a few times and think its a great place to learn about how to care for these cars, I had a Fiat Coupe 20vt a few years ago and the forums were of great help too and indeed made a very good freind also.
So the project has been to get a car the way I want it for uder 2k, now some have scoffed at the idea and some have wished me good luck but what I do know is that the car is running great the breaks are very responsive and she pulls very strongly and I must say the front end is way better than the Fiat,it gives loads of responce and confidance going into sharp corners and then to drive out of it (I love late breaking).
All the work done has realy been a case of tlc and maintanance, I must admit that I was surprised at the lack of maintanance seeing that the car's only hade 2 previous owners but I do have a book full of reciepts its just that some things seemed overlooked, here's the work I've done so far.
Fitted used but mint radiator
replaced driverside electric window mech
Exhaust mid section repaired and back section replaced with one from a breakers
1 cv boot replaced
Refurbish alloy wheels
I have a replacement rear light cluster to fit after the re-spray
On monday shes going to my mates body shop for a complete respray (Papaya Orange) and after that the main job is the cam belt service which another friend is helping me with, I will also tint the windows and rear lights and black all the vents at the front of the car.
Here are pre-paint job pics, I will update the pics when spray jobe is complete,
Thanx guys any input is welcome
