Fiat 500 Restoration and Maintenance
A SADDENING STORY for every Fiat 500 lover ......'The Black Adder'
In the days before our visit a new restoration customer decided to pull the Black Adder out of the hedges where he'd lived for many a year so we could have a look at him and assess the work required to restore him, unfortunately - he did not appreciate being towed out of his nest and look what happened next..... heartbreaking:(
Needless to say, we are still assessing 'The Black Adder'.
Fortunately, this new restoration customer also had 'Beryl - the yellow peril' and we are pleased to say she is in better condition, look out below for Beryl and her journey in the coming weeks.
And now - see below for our usual restoration projects!!
Weenie Fiats are pleased to offer additional services to restore, design and build your own Fiat 500, we also offer specialist Servicing, Maintenance and MOT services at our workshop. It is so important to look after these ageing classics through specialist care and expertise.
