We are really happy that you bought another FIAT just after selling off MER.

I am sure you will inspire many people who sold their FIATs due to unavoidable circumstances to buy a FIAT again.

Also as we discussed during the meet,

For members who are willing to own a 1100\Padmini\S1\Fiat can drop me a PM stating what model they are looking for and in what budget they are looking in and I shall get in a few vehicles for them.

They can also call mail me "bselvapathy@gmail.com"

Regards

Yesterday was a horrible day for we FCB guys. A very unfortunate incident happened to Sujith's Fiat.

See the link:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/street...ml#post2016756 (Zen Estilo hits a Fiat1100 and runs away.)

Get Well soon Sujith's FIAT - CAP.

Sujith: This is the problem when you love something. One needs to be really courageous. You never know when your heart will break!

I just picked up my S1 a few hours ago. There was a issue with the battery and had to buy one. The car was parked for more than 3-4 months now and did not face any problems in starting the engine. Had to remove the AC belt,the belt connecting the fan and AC pump as it was weak. The brakes were jammed and my mechanic had a hard time driving it back to the garage from Vittal Mallaya road to Banashkari without headlights and the right wiper not working.

Tomorrow`s plan

1. Engine and gear box oil change.
2. Breakes being checked.
3. Timing check.
4. Electrical check up of all lights,wipers,meters and tail lamps.
5. Servicing the alternator ( Will not take any risks since the battery is new).
6. A/C check up.
7. Complete Water Service.
8. Change the old Panosonic cassete player to a MP3 player.

No cosmetic work other than a front grill (Simillar to Karthik Makam`s One) next weekend.

Will post a few photographs tomorrow.

Regards

Thats great Selva. May be you should start a new thread on the entire process.

Yes, the before and after all the work pictures would be great for everyone. Good luck with restoring the S1 to proper running condition. Again, FCB is very happy that you got this FIAT.

Dear Bob- Heartiest congratulations on your acquisition. Please post pictures of your S1 is it bucket or bench seats. Good to see so many S1s where only delights and other fiats are cared for.

The delay in the next meet is because of Ramzan till next month, Navaratri/Dushera from 8th to 17th October, Diwali from 5th to 9th November and the big news - one of FCB's Founder is geting married in mid October.
