Looking very nice already Phil.

Shame it only came up after Brooklands - would have been nice to have had 3 cronos there!

Looks like an excellent buy, saw this on auto trader and thought would go quick, crono not my favourite colour but still tempting!
Sure will be a cracker.

Gorgeous colour Phil, and pretty unusual. Dead jealous, although I still love my Moonie out of my fleet... love

No pictures as I am in Istanbul, but whilst here the car has been worked on by FCSS - Luckily, Joe is based near my house, so he picks the car up and takes it back - Nice chap smile

Anyway, the following has been done to date...

**Belts
**Water pump
**Cam phase sensor
**Rocker cover gasket
**Clutch slave
**Thermostat
**ECU temp sensor
**Fresh coolant

and then this little lot will occur before the first of July

**New GTiR turbo installed
**Mapped by Flea
**New suspension and welded front subframe fitted
**HiD's fitted
**New hose set
**Other bits and bobs

I come home for a meeting in the UK on the 30th July so will take pics and update further then....

Looks better every time I see it patch thumb And newly refreshed crinkled rocker really tranforms the engine bay doesn't it. And the re-newed Alloys. One thing - on that side on shot - Are you missing non-RED LE 20 VT badges? Hope to see it in the flesh one day...........LE meet!

Yes, strange one, same badges on each side? Maybe specified from new by the first owner? I have no idea!

I'm getting her totally resprayed (lacquer peel on roof and boot) sometime early next year so will get the badges enamelled red at this point. Once this is done she 'will' look mint smile

Wonder how challenging the crono colour will be to a paint shop? I doubt you'd be able to specify something like that as new from Fiat. Perhaps they were at the bottom of the box on the track! Great to see a good few cars are now being brought up to and kept minty.... thumb

If you can give the code to the paint shop they can match it. After 15 years being exposed to sun and the elements, the original crono colour will not be as it was straight from the factory anyways smile Yes, there are some cacking examples owned by guy's on the forum. Great news.
