Changed bumper colour from black to silver, removed badge on bonnet, sprayed grille and light surrounds silver and reinserted badge in grille. Changed leather on seats with the 124 logo. Also can just see in the bonnet were I have had louvres pressed into the bonnet giving it a more meatier look
Currently recovering the console in leather trim will post pictures when done. Possibly not to everyone tastes but I like it! :)

Nicely done. I like the idea of the silver rear bumper which balances the silver windshield surround front to back.

I also want to know how you moved the front end badge from the bumper to the grille...

Quick update - First Trophy for my 124, beat a brand new Mustang into 2nd place! The owner was not very happy to be beaten by a 5 year old Fiat :)
The car received a lot of attention especially the interior which my husband had redesigned. One observer suggested that we drive the car to Fiat in Italy to show them what the 124 could have looked like, really proud of the reactions to the remodel of our car. One of the judges was from the TV show Bangers and Cash.

How did you get the front badge area flat like that?
Hi there, sorry have not responded back sooner. The badge was removed by the body shop guys, I think they unbolted it from the bonnet facia and filled and re sprayed the holes, They then cut it into the grille which was also re sprayed. They did a great job as the pictures show and make the car look completely different. Hope this answers your questions

The louvres pressed into the bonnet giving it a more meatier look, do they work? Would those allow heat to escape up and out from the engine compartment? Gets mighty hot under there in the vicinity of an EC 1446+. That heat seems needless now that I've seen these louvres.
