Amazing job!!! She looks classy! And one of the best alloys I've seen yet. Congrats once again. And you really turned this car around very fast! Enjoy it slowly now

Personally dont like tints...rather than new Fiat logos i have in mind the new 2011 Brazilian UNO logo.

Looking good. I would suggest

Headlight is pale and needs a shine
paint wheels white
remove dealer stickers
Put FIAT brand mini hubcaps rather than Neo

Thanks.
-New Headlights have been ordered,will be installed by weekend.
-Did you mean paint Alloys white? If so,they are already in white.
-will get rid of dealer stickers and put up new decals(but over weekend)
-where do i get Fiat brand mini hubcaps?

Now,some ideas for decaling.I plan to decal the lower part of the door with the design of the 2011 Brazilian Uno below and inscribe UNO in the new 2011 font.What say?

Gorgeous! Makes me miss my dear Uno D. 130,000 kms., and then TVS finally won the battle. I admire your passion for buying, restoring, and owning this car.

If you're interested in using the new Fiat badge as mini hubcaps :

1) Try to get hold of Fiat Punto wheel caps.
2) Flick the Fiat badge from the wheel caps
3) Then flick the badge from the alloys.
4) Stick the Fiat badge onto the alloys, using Fevi Kwik. It costs only Rs.5

IIRC, it's temperature gauge.

Fiat Uno 1.7 D has a different temperature gauge. (Please see the attached image)

I got the tyres and alloys fitted at Reliance Autozone..they had a deal along with the ICE and gave free floor mats and waxed the interiors of my Uno.

Abarth alloy caps,seems to be a good idea.Weekend im getting the Abarth Red Racing lines below the door and the Abarth logo on the door and some Italian Motifs.

After month of trouble shooting with peculiar problems like:
1.AC Blower getting conked off (with out notice and in this torrid heat)
2.Noises in Steering.
3.Drive Shaft replacement and new bearings
4.Brake adjustment
5.Wheel Alignment & Balancing
Uno is now perfected and elusive left side OVRM has also been fitted.
Trademark decaling was the last thing to go the Uno..Abarth lines and Logo,few Italian functional logos and Voila Uno is as good as new.
Enjoying the Italian ride like a new found toy...Cheers !!
