P.S:The Uno landed in my hands last wednesday and today it is fully restored/refurbished.Quickest restoration i have ever done !!!
Congrats again! The car looks amazing , One of the fastest restoration I have ever seen! That said please get the interiors and dashboard thoroughly cleaned by a professional. That is the only thing left to complete your restoration. I guess waxing the interiors may prove to be a good option.

Ram bhai UNO is looking just immaculate and i am sure will continue to look so like this in your custody. The alloys are really making a lot of difference. Good choice.
Hope Uno enjoys many many happy miles with you. BTW finally your dream of ITALIAN FLAG is completed with this car. I hope you got what i meant to say.

PS:ITALIAN FLAG referred here because Hillram has other two Italian beauties in green & red shades.

I think you meant dressing the interiors rather than waxing.

Ram, your Fiat Uno looks fantastic after the quick restoration. Sadly, I feel like making my father buyback the Fiat Uno 1.7 that we had sold off, some years back. Sigh.

- Please get a LHS mirror fitted.

- Do get the dealer stickers on the rear windshield, if possible.

- Please share more pics of the car, especially the pic of your 'Italian Flag'!

Drive safe. Always wear your seatbelt.

Amazing restoration... makes me envious for parting with such a potential beauty...
The alloys and paint job has really brought the car up to a fantastic visual level and I can only imagine the exhaust noise when you rip through the roads...

Sigh! Fond memories.

I'm glad that the car is in capable and loving hands. It was a pleasure owning this FIAT Uno.

Sir, here's wishing you many miles of fun and joy with my 'Betsy', as she was lovingly called by my friends...

Thanks everyone for your appreciation.
@Klubclass..I have already ordered the left OVRM and it should be fitted on to the Uno this week.This particular model came with only one OVRM.
@Zappex,i did give just one coat of interior polish myself,last night but in hurry.I intend to get a Sonax treatment in the next 2 days.
@Prateek..Uno will be safe with me and you can take a ride whenever,if ever you are in Hyderabad.
@Ani..I will let the secret out.Its a special series i got done.EK is the flight code of Emirates that I now frequent fly between Hyd-Paris !!!

Feels good to hear that.

How much does the OVRM cost? Yes, I've this feeling that the spare parts are very expensive.

Looks very nice hillram. Are you planning to add some decals to it? Maybe you could add a tricolor (green, white, red) decal. I do not know what it is called exactly, but it can be seen on many modified Fiats.

Nope, waxing interiors is a common practice, That said I just meant cleaning the interiors properly.

Well, the boxy design gives a retro look and the alloys add a modern feel.
It's nice to have one of these cars in the garage.
Congrats to you sir on owning this beauty.
