So, I've been thinking that instead of doing the complete Heritage job on my white Abarth, I will just go with the front lip red spoiler, red tow cover or red tow hook and the Abarth emblems on the side. What do you guys think? I'm 50/50 on doing the complete Heritage job.

It looks great that way. The 124 is such a beautiful car you can really play with the details and it still looks good.

One of the reasons I did the black matt wrap, as opposed to waiting for the Mopar heritage paint, is that it's removable and gives me options. If at some point the wrap gets shabby I might go plain (your idea) or run a red stripe down the engine bonnet. Orange Coast Fiat is adding side stripes to many of their Abarths and Lussos, which you might be able to see on their website.

I'm with you, JKS. I also own a white Abarth with red seats. Not sure I need to do more to make it stand out further; it already draws small crowds and presents a puzzle. Comments today ranged from "It must be German" to "I think its electric." The red accents and a Abarth emblem, preferably on the steering wheel are what I'd to. How is the Australian steering wheel done, RBH58? And how do you get those photos to show at full size?

So add red mirrors and you have the Australian launch edition

And when you look at the above pics, it is a good look. I prefer it without the heritage stripe now.

That would work, too. I got some good instruction from ItsyBitsy that I'll try next time I post.

I like this color combo. I still prefer to have the heritage stripe, but this 1/2 set up looks really good, and is a lot easier on the wallet.

An Abarth oil filler cap would look nice under the hood.

Just ordered the lower grill red trim, red mirror caps and side badging for a total of 270 from the desiraparts eBay site. Thinking about going with the red tow hook from Cravenspeed instead of painting the tow hook cover. Excited to see how she will Iook. Now, the wait begins.

jks, I just ordered my red bits too after reading your post. Cravenspeed tow hook sounds interesting. For those who have done it, how difficult, or not, was it to remove the OEM mirror caps?
