I work for the Chrysler engine plant here in Dundee and my team is currently launching the 1.4L Multi air engine for Fiat (Fire) and for those of yoy that don't know there is a sport model called the "Abarth" so I thought it would be cool to copy them somewhat and make new custom badges for my truck. I stripped all other badging off the truck except for these 2.
Here is the Fiat version

Cool man. I've wanted one of those 500 since I saw them in a magazine a couple years ago.

No I don't have the time yet for my projects but this guy does these for all the cars at Sema and West Coast Customs and is pretty reasonable considering the amount of work these need. They are not just flat aluminum, the backsides are arched to contour the body panels.

Yes they will, Yamaha will go under before either of these companies do.

Highly doubt it.. there is a big difference:

Yamaha - successful diversed company that is making money. It will never go under. They put out a top notch product.

Fiat / Chrysler - two failed endeavors joining together - two wrongs don't make a right - and they will take each other down. And both their products are fucking junk anyways. I won't lose any sleep when they go under. Fuck em.

That is my story and I am sticking to it.
