Karl, did the elegant have the teardrop indicators or round ones? coz i've seen most cars with round ones, but read somewhere about it having teardrop shaped ones.

Round semi spherical ones, but smaller than the delight, and with a very thin base. Some even had a thin partition line running radially.

Hey guys, since this has now become a seperate thread, how about changing it to "The official restored Fiats thread"??

Guys, pls post all your restored fiat pics here!

Some more pics from me, This time, its a fiat elegant. Even though its restored, it nowhere near the standard set by the super select. Found this one at a used car dealer!!

Hi JayD,

If by any chance this elegant is for sale, please let me know the details ASAP as I will definately be interested, if, at a reasonable rate.

Thanks,

Truly magnificent!!! The paint job is class. I did not like the rectangular fog lamps. They kinda spoil the look from front (or maybe its just me).

Behram sir, the car looks Fabulous! Really good finish too! I know u painted it black for a reason, but i would've preferred body coloured rims instead of the black ones.

P.S: whitewalls would look awesome on your car. I'll get the info for u soon!
