Re: Mods to "Gumby"

added the Mopar Accessory Chrome Gas Cap a couple months ago. this past week I noticed the "500" emblem on it has come off. :( but underneath the emblem was another "500" in chrome. so now I have to decide: do I go back to the dealer and have them warranty the cap OR do I just leave it the way it is...

Re: 2912 Calendar

yes, got mine and all was well. even had one of our local FLU members cars in it, although right now I can't remember which of his cars OR what month it appeared. kind of a 'background' car. LOL

Re: Brake Caliper rebuild on '87 X

Hey guys, I have to do a brake caliper rebuild on my X this weekend, as it is pulling to the right during braking. I bought the kits from Midwest Bayless, and I'm wondering if any of you have any suggestions, tips, hints, etc; that might come in handy during my saturday morning endeavor. I also bou...

Re:

Snow? What's that? We had some sand blow off the beach onto the road the other day. I HATE YOU! :tongue: also, I switched my 195/45R16 OE Continentals for 205/50R16 Michelin Exalto Pilots. MUCH better ride and grip. on the TireRack site, the Michelins are rated much higher than the Continentals and...

Re: Power Steering for Fiat Spider?

interesting mod, but I think you've got it in the wrong area. this is for the new Fiat 500. if you're thinking of using a 500 gear, you still might want to post this in an area where fellow Spider fans/owners might be of more assistance. :)

Mods to "Gumby"

this past month I got a set of the OE FIAT Accessory "Slush Mats" for the front of my 500. I was trying to hold out for the WeatherTech Floor Trays but Winter IS here, so I picked up the OE mats instead. I'm really happy with them. they look great and are VERY heavy, nothing like the "Slush Mats" I ...

Bert....did you get a good response for your email list? I'm considering doing the same thing here in Indiana to get an owner base and see if there is enough interest to start a separate chapter of FLU for 500's.

pls let me know. I'll also email you. :)

thanks,

Denise, you're right. I think the "accessory" mats are MUCH nicer than the ones that come with the car AND you get a pair of REAR mats in the set too. I'm just waiting for WeatherTech to come out with their Floor Liners for the 500. they should be ready either next month or the first of the year. fo...

REALLY? same color? my 500 Sport is Verde Chiaro but my package was Grigio. I only WISH I had gotten one in Verde Chiaro.

at least the car in the pic was a Sport in the right color.
