My only problem was the headlights constantly getting covered in snow. The LED lights didn't generate enough heat to melt the snow. While the headlight washers were effective at clearing the lights, it was frustrating that the washers only came on every few times the windshield washers are used. I wish I could activate the headlight washers separately.
I activate my headlight washers with a double pull on the windscreen washer. Get little water on windscreen and washes the lights.

Yesterday I received my Officine Abarth placque for my center console storage bin door from Poggiapiede. The communication was good and the given that each piece is made to order as it carries your VIN. Here's a photo of mine with the last 6 digits blocked for security reasons. The camera casued distortion a bit so the edges of the plate look curved but they are absolutely square. I'll install it once I can pull the car out of its very small winter storage spot in my very small garage. Then I'll post pictures of it in place.

I dig that. Did they include fasteners?

Yes, he did. It is a complete package. Very nicely done. For 50 euros I thought it a very good buy since it is made to order with the VIN.

Yep, he does really good work, and each plate is custom. He’ll make it either with or without mounting holes. It comes with an adhesive back, and mounting screws if you order the plate with the mounting holes drilled.

I Love Poggiapiedi. He's on Facebook here: https://m.facebook.com/profile.php?id=468466233222799 Remember the time difference between where you are and Naples Italy. He'll reply but it may take a bit. Ivano took my order over Facebook messenger. Everything went very smoothly.

Been a good day, installed the cld tiles in the trunk, added led backup, interior and trunk bulbs, trunk one is a mess broken but i got it pieced together. cleaned off the warning stickers from the sun visors, and wifey painted my emblem black again, as the paint was flaking off from it, this is a new to me car so just catching up on some things.

Today I paid an unexpected visit to my spider, I uncovered her and pressed the Start button and voila first shot she was ALIVE. Had her on for 10 minutes, plugged my S10 phone and the Android Auto just displayed on the screen. I noticed about 11 Icons were displayed(less then 8 weeks ago)
went back and forward and said HAPPY NEW 2021 and see you end of Jan 2021 to restart her again. It felt good.

New personalized plates. I'm trying to find a decent plate frame though. Something low profile. Haven't found anything I like yet.

I fitted my RaceSeng Alcantara gear knob today ready for when I get my new GuardianDesign Alcantara steering wheel and shift boot. It feels great!

I uncovered my Abarth Spider and did my triweekly start and run. It was only 16f outside which made the garage get quite chilly during the run. All put back to bed now for another 3 weeks.👍 Forgot to add: replaced the stock battery hold down with the black anodized aluminum one I got through Aliexpress. Adds a nice touch under the hood/bonnet.

Drat! Got caught in a misty drizzly mess today, but had a nice conversation with a chap who introduced himself to me while I was shopping for groceries. He knew all about the Abarth and just wanted to chat about it. It was a nice little diversion from what otherwise was a pretty boring day.

Killing some time, so I ordered these smoked side Dynamic marker lights from Aliexpress. $17. for both including shipping to Canada. Since not going South now, it will give me something to do till spring. This Codiv is killing my wallet.:mad::cool:
