Should have done the other thread first I suppose, but its up now, with the first stage of what I have been doing. Very labour intensive, getting all these pictures on, Ill have to do it in stages?

I am not sure I should call my thread a restoration after looking at your pics.. Maybe more an intensive clean thread!

Looking at the pics, it reminds me of a car that's been burnt completely to the ground. Did you need to strip it down quite as much as that?

I wanted a total colour change, and the place I took the bodyshell to, always media blast the shells before spraying them, as they have no idea of what has gone-on in the past, with damage etc.So that's what they done and it did show-up prevoius damage to the shell.

I am impressed, but not surprised, because I watched your topic for Fiat Stilo 20V Turbo.

Surely this needs to be featured in one of the Italian Car or Classic magazines??

Amazing stuff! This is going to be a brand new coupe lick

The Stilo Abarth turbo project, I was a bit naive when I first took this one on! Didn't think it would have been such hard work to do. Reversed it all back to standard and still driving it, but have still got all the components to have another go one day!!

Just found your ‘restoration’ thread. Wow! What can I say? This will genuinely be better than a brand new car straight from the factory. I just wish I had the knowledge, workshop facilities, tools, time, money and patience to undertake such a project! Keep up the good work and keep the pics coming. laugh

WoW! totally awesome. I really think you should put either all black Fiat style recaro's(original option) or have a set of recaro's re-trimmed in either tan or red.

I see you have a plus side skirts being prepped are you going to do a Duffy and have them fitted with stainless fixing points along the sills?

I'm off to have a look at your Stilo thread now =)...can anyone link me to it please?

Great work!

Where did you find all new parts? For example I can't find a new expansion tank tongue

I just looked the part numbers up on eper, went to my local Fiat dealership, and ordered them. Not all the parts I wanted were still available, but got most of what I wanted, plus they gave me a 20% discount. I also just kept searching the Internet with part numbers, you would be surprised at what you can find other than on eBay!
