Few weeks ago I realised that I haven't done anything completely and utterly daft of late.
Subconsciously I decided to act before I forget how to do stupid things.

The thing arrived yesterday evening.

As standard, when you get a project car from PBK, it comes with some surface rust and at least one panel prepared or in need of painting.

Few things are missing still need sourcing and the whole thing recommissioning (I never thought I would use this word again in my life)

Don't worry people, this project will never get finished so expect no further updates until it's back looking for new owner.

What does it need for the MOT so at least you could dive it?

Battery, brake master cylinder, brake reservoir. That's a list from PBK.
Locks, ignition barrel.

It will need overhaul of brakes altogether probably and the front leaf spring looks like needs changing.

Looks like a realist MOT list to tackle and then you will get to drive it and up value the car in the process.

Loads of inspiration to be found on Egyptian Fiat/Seat 133 fan page.

Which look should I go for?

The white one at the bottom!!!! There is the new master cylinder in the box Daniel.

 

That transverse spring seems ok to my untrained eye, likely just needs a sanding down/painting/good clean.

 

I was very impressed by the overall solidity of this little Seat. Underneath looks sound with just surface rust to clean off. 

 

Deffo worth getting under there with a wire grinder wheel and getting it properly protected. It is amazing that it has lasted this long.

 

As a serial 127 licker in your younger days, I expect that this will all seem rather familiar for you.

You could call it a Seat Abeja (Bee)

I liked the third "look."

 

As for locks, surely a set from almost any older Fiat/Lada/FSO would do the job?  It was all standard stuff back in the 70s, one of our serial Fiat/Lada chappies should have a set.  Surely?

Oh and now you have this, as well as the beige BX, I think I really have to come down for an afternoon of car-fiddling sometime.  In the Cadillac of course.  What other treats have you got?

I was going to fit a bike can to the 133, the exhaust already exits at the rear, just along and underneath the rear bumper. 

 

Get to Blackburn man, get to Blackburn. I wonder i f it was the green one that was on eBay a couple of weeks back.
