      Fiat Uno Restore

      Dear Friends,

      I am new to this site. I got to know from my friends that I can seek suggestions and advises on how to restore my Fiat Uno Petrol 1999 model. I have this uno with me since 2007. Being my first car, I don't want to give up inspite of repeated arguments and advises from my parents and family. Finally I have convinced my parents and am looking forward to go for the restore. Although I am not that financially sound to go for a complete work on one go but as of beginning, I am going ahead with the options to improve the milage of my car. presently it is delivering 11-12 Kmpl and I was told that the upgrade in carburetor can get me 15-17 kmpl. Is that true and if so, I would seek your inputs and suggestions on the make and model of the carburetor that can fit into my car.

      Also in addition to this, I am also looking forward to upgrade my music system in my car. Presently I have a JVC mp3 player in it which is though doing fine with a good output without amp. I have a 2 channel amp given to me by one of my friend which is in working condition. I want to install that amp accompanied by the Sony 3300W columns in the boot. Will that be possible to install? Do seek your suggestions. Its a dream for me to try this on my car as the clarity of the speakers is just awesome and they are just idling in my room as the main unit was burnt off due to electrical fault. I don't mind losing space in the boot as the car is for my personal use and we have a seperate car for family travel.

      Wasn't the Uno MPFI? 11 - 12 is not a bad figure. You should be happy with the FE.

      As for your ICE doubts, please post your queries in the ICE section. The Gurus will be happy to help. But, I guess dedicated car speakers will give you better results.

      I had the dedicated car speakers with my system but unfortunately I was cheated with the fake ones in the brand name of pioneer. That is why I am not willing to take any chance further. If there is any particular website or store located somewhere in New Delhi or Hyderabad where I can confidently get the genuine speakers, I will be happy enough to go for it. Also I would seek your suggestion for the tailor made wooden trays available in the market for the rear speakers. Is that worth to buy and mount the speakers or should I only go with those actual fiber tray that was already installed in the car? Anyhow I have to change the tray as the previous one is now more that 12 years old and has lost the strength due to wear & tear and multiple re-installations of speakers in it.

      Sure. Will be happy to meet them. I heard about a Fiat Classic Club in Hyderabad and am in process and attempts to get in touch with the members so that they can also give their inputs and suggestions.

      In Delhi I was really upset and was about to give away this Uno as this car in Delhi was known to be a white elephant to be maintained and also the spares available were mostly country made (Local brands), available only on order and costing high as compared with those of now days luxury cars. But here in Hyderabad when I saw a few Unos running on the road, I was happy that my car got a life back and can be retained and maintained easily.

      Hi there,
      I am back with the updates

      Progress this week is

      completed denting work .


      However the following work is going to be completed in this full project.

      .Denting and Touchup :
      .Replenish missing parts like door handles etc.
      .Drive shaft makes noise on sharp turns...needs replacement.
      .AC blower unit needs to be repaired.
      .gas filled to ensure effective cooling.
      .Fit timing belt cover.
      .Check the tyre condition and replce if necessary
      .wheel alignment.
      .Silencer welding.
      .rear height adjustment and suspension service.
      .full engine service and oil change.
      .check the papers and reconfirm if all the required documents are in place.
      .RTO formalities to ensure the vehicle passes the fitness tests.
      .New rear tray to fix speakers.
      .Since the engine was in excellent condition even after 125000kms no work on the engine side.
      Estimated time around 3 weeks.

      I shall inform the cost involved after the project is completed.

      Although this is going to be a quick restoration as the vehicle was in daily use till very recently and has not been used for only the last 1 year still I would want to ensure that its in perfect shape.
