After sorting out all the business with the Triumph, clean and coat the gas tank, rebuild the carb, yank some spare parts off the TR7 in the junkyard and some autocross testing the car runs like a top. What to work on until Thunderhill? My Fiat of course. I'm going for the Abarth look without the $$$. The solution was to yank the bumpers off, cut the springs, pick a set of turn signals off a '82? BMW 633csi and cut some bumper overriders off a Spitfire from our local pick and pull. The turn signals are a nice fit considering the holes are a curved parallelogram, I will post an update once the bumperettes are on. I had to drill the lenses on from the front but it doesn't bother me too much.
