Donor Parts

Building » Stage 1 : Donor Vehicle » Donor Parts

Any Fiat Seicento can be used as the donor although a non-power assisted steering column is needed. As the Animoto can utilise so many of the components from the donor it is advisable to purchase a complete car rather than buy seperate components. This also gives the right to register with an age related plate rather than a Q plate. It also requires rear brake caliper from VW/Audi for rear disk conversion. For hydraulic clutch conversion also requires clutch master and slave cylinders from Fiat Punto.
All donor parts are detailed in our build manual.
