Default re: Super Sport: Buying & rebuilding a Fiat Palio S10

I wanted to give a garnish to the machine and hence went with the idea of a bolt on body kit without altering too much with the aesthetics. Had a design in mind and tried to convince the guy all i wanted was a subtle rear diffuser and a front skirt to match the flow. Im not sure about the outcome but still got a spare set of front bumpers to work on with. After 3 months of waiting i get to see this.

In the meantime i stripped the car on the other side for painting. All beading's were removed and the weather strips are to be replaced with new ricambi ones. The front glass to be removed and replaced along with the rubber grame for the windshield. There was minor rust at the beading ends and the boot end. The portion of the rubber joining the metal were specially checked for rust as the palio is highly prone to rust in these places.
The issue is the C pillar S10 badge lost its sheen making new badges is an issue as its a 3D print and the sticker guys dont do it for small orders.

3rd week i was called to finalise the colour. I had selected a different brand of paint and clear mix so they wanted to make sure the colour was right. The colour was mixed in my presence and sample was sprayed and consent was given to go ahead with the paint.

5 days later the first coat is painted and stickers go into it before the clear coat. Thre was a bit of delay as i insisted on a particular painter to get the clear coat and final paint done as i intended to add a pearl touch without loosing the OE colour. The sachin signatures and the badges were stuck and version S10 super sport was nearing completion.

Hats off to you Nimish anthony for your dedication and passion to build up this supersport.

I am sure this is one car which will surely go to the history books of FIATs in India.

Wish if you could allow me to drive it once

Rating 5 stars.

This is a classic one man. Loved the second pic, the roller one. Looks terrific and gleaming . All the best with it. I always loved this model, dont know why FIAT ever changed it over to the Stile

Awesome! Take a bow Nimish!!!
S10 is a living legend among cars and yours will be legend among S10s.:-)

Whatever thing you have mentioned about maintaining S10 like changing the timing belt,crank sensor,alternator,etc are all spot on and a must read for potential S10 buyers to keep their cars in top notch condition.

Hope i get a chance to drive your car atleast once.
Eagerly waiting for further updates.

Excellent , Congratulations. Appreciate your perseverance. 7 months.

Late 90's - early 2000's Production Palio was one great piece of engineering. Solid and Sturdy , the feel of the steering , sheer confidence from the body shell, the mighty doors and to finish off with a great engine both 1.6 Petrol and 1.9D ( though there is no comparision between both on power delivery ).

I was proud owner of a Palio 1.9D. It was a great machine and till today I badly miss the car. No matter what ever I drive , that blue bird will always be remembered. some 10 years ago, my driver blew up the engine due to over heating and the car never came back to its original state. had to sell it off with a very very heavy heart.

Its overwhelming to see this car coming back to life as if it was produced just yesterday.

This thread is a tribute to all the Palios. some that perished and some that continue to live on. But yours will be a legend that lived on.

Congratulations again.

So more or many more pictures please.

Excellent restoration project Nimish. The beast has spent enough time behind the scenes and now it should be seen and heard! I'm hoping to see the machine in metal soon
