Since we're in the middle of snowmageddon here in PEI, I have spent the day perusing the build posts here on the forum, and I thought I would do my own as well. I bought my Fiat in May of 2012 used with 26,000 kms on it. Here is what it looked like when I bought it.

It is an auto with a sunroof, nothing much else on it.

Then about 6 months after that I bought a few things for it:

I had the car lowered with Eibach Pro-Kit springs, I had gotten Zonker's Short Shot intake, and I had a custom side stripe made by Benini Design on Ebay.
In July of 2013, my grandfather had passed away and left us all in the family with some money, so I decided that I was going to make "Jacopo" one of a kind.

Over the next 3 months, this is what I had accomplished:

500 Madness front strut bar.

GTR 17" Rims and Federal EVO 595 tires.

I also have the Magnaflow glasspack resonator from 500 Madness.

So now, before the car went into storage for the winter, it looked like this:

I still have a closet full of parts for it to install once it comes out of storage the first week of May. These include:

-Mopar aluminum pedals
-Lug nut covers from RRM
-RRM window stripe
-500 Madness GoPedal
-Vibrant Super Quiet resonator (hopefully will quiet down the exhaust)
-Aluminum shift know from Black
-Kiwi bluetooth diagnostic tool for Android and DashCommand software for my Google Nexus.
-Rear seat delete from 500 Madness.

Going to have lots to do in the spring, looking forward to it!

Cheers,

Steffen

Looks great. Love that front lip on the Sport. I've never seen that hood bug deflector. Is it an easy install? I could see putting it on for long trips.

The bug deflector is a Form Fit piece I believe. I purchased it through the dealer. I think it's attached via a combination of adhesives/screws so I don't know how easy it would be to attach/remove.

I also have RRM Track Series front and rear brakes/pads to install once the 8 feet of snow disappears from our roads lol.

I'm finally going to be entering the Fiat in a car show! 5th Annual PEI Dream Machine Show and Shine Saturday May 17th from 1-4 pm and Sunday May 18th from 10-4 pm. Located at 451 Mount Edward Road in Charlottetown PEI. Hopefully will see some of my Maritime Fiat friends out and about!

Good luck with the car show! I entered my first show last year and won a 1st place trophy. Decided to retire then and go out on top...hehe.
(I might enter some more this year)

Resurrecting thread for a question -- Does that hood protector help at all with reducing bug splatter on the windshield? This little car is by far the worst I've driven through the years for murdering flying things.
I like the looks of the protector, but not enough to spend the money if it doesn't meet my needs.

It might help protect a few rock chips in that area. Your still going to have bugs all over the front of the car, and on top of the protector too. The front of the 500 is extremely flat. I wouldn't waste my money. Save you quarters for the car wash.
