Welcome all and everyone.

The day has come for me to once again have a track car, this time however its FIAT and contains a fiat coupe engien.....so hopefully you will let me potter around on some of the organized track days.

We can give a special thanks to the need to empty my wallet too Mr Flea and MR Dave_t who once again convinced me that track days are indeed fun, and not in the slightest bit nutty and an exercise in cheating death thumb

So whats going to happen, what am I going to do?

suspension refresh, shocks, springs, wishbones ect
Yellow stuff pads
top strut bar (done)
Lower bar (Neil's should fit)
strip the rear seats and excess weight out car
Relocate battery
bucket seats
and finally a set of 888's

This will give me a good footing to get on the track with the best handling car I can afford and power I can most likely deal with on my first few track days

The long term plan would be to drop a 20vt block, and gear box in to the bravo..but thats a long way off yet

So, look forward to updating you laugh this is however going to be done on a budget, and over a few months frown

Finally got to take a hour out of my day today wile eating my lunch to get a set of spanners and screwdrivers out and start stripping him down.

I'm hoping to put another hour aside tomorrow to getting the rest of it out and put in to dry storage some where. By Friday he should be striped and ready for some new lighter seats.

Next month ill order the new wishbones and droplinks laugh

Photos to follow tomorrow laugh

Some progress has been made today

Right tool for the right job? I have not been able to get the bloody seats out as I did not have anything that could remove the star drive bolts that held it all in place.
With the correct tools today, and a cracker bar I managed to get everything out laugh

Parts got (need to collect)
Droplinks and wishbones (oem)
FK coil overs
Strut bar

Needed
20vt wheels
lower strut bar
Rear shocks and springs
Track rod ends
