Abarth 500 Esseesse
« on: September 11, 2017, 12:19:16 pm »
Hi all, been lurking around for a couple of months while I source a clean Abarth Esseesse for my wife. After missing several cars by only a couple of hours I eventually found one in Scotland. Last Friday I flew to Glasgow to go over the car and if it was as expected then drive it home. Initial thoughts the car has the basis of being a solid run around for the wife and kids, whilst I can also have some fun. We done the deal and set off on a 420 mile journey home, eventually arriving home after some 10 hours on the road including food and drink stops.

The next 2 days I spent cleaning the car as it wasn’t up to a standard I was comfortable with. After a decontamination of the paint and wheels, 3 snow foams, clay bar, ceramic sealed the glass and black plastics the car is in a strong place. Next will be mopping and polishing the paint and then ceramic sealing with 2 coats. I have ordered a new scuttle panel and covers, new front bumper grill and sides, new wing badges, new wiper arms and wipers, new Michelin Pilot Sport 3 all round with the wheels being refurbished next month. If anyone knows the correct white paint code for the OZ wheels I would really appreciate assistance here.

    Hello there, try an image hosting site like tinypic.com?

    Looks like you're able to link your images now. Any other issues to report?

    So this little beauty has now been sold and the new owner collected it yesterday. Was sold to make room for a 595 Comp, now on the hunt. Ideally want a well specced Compovollo Grey with performance pack.
