The hardest part of doing something unique is getting the balls to make the first move. When Cam Grizzly decided he wanted to bag his 2012 Fiat 500 Sport, he knew he’d better act on it fast because there were a ton of technical challenges to new body Fiat 500s aren’t like your typical car. Since they are so new to the market, getting North American aftermarket suspension parts for them can become a little that this journey wasn’t going to be an easy one, Cam decided to take his ride over to Dorbritz Designs in Texas to maximize his chances at first obstacle to overcome was removing the factory sport springs and aftermarket goodies that the dealership added onto Cam’s 500 without his consent. This proved to be just as costly as a deposit on his bag setup, which forced him to reinvest his money twice into what should have been a one-time past the limitations of having such tiny suspension components proved to be Cam’s next big ordeal. Being no more than 10″ tall and 6″ wide up front and 10″ tall by 4.5″ wide out back, finding a rubber air spring that would sit properly wasn’t going to be, Drew Dorbritz knows his air ride and was able to work out a custom strut setup that proved to be both functional and safe. This allowed him more time to focus on the fun part of the build: the years of driving a static Mazda3, he didn’t want to waste time fiddling with switches to get up and down his driveway each day. He needed a solution that would handle all the guess-work for him. AccuAir E-Level proved to be the only solution Cam wanted in his slim, 3-gallon tank went into the trunk of this micro car which proved to hold just the right amount of pressurized air to lift and lower his ride whenever need months of hard work, Cam was now able to power his ride down the highway and around bends with ease. All he needed now was a simple wheel setup to set her off at MemoryFab was quick to answer the phone and promptly sent Cam four clean 16″ x 8.5″ M Technical obstacles proved to be not only challenging, but fun as well. Thanks to the hard work of Drew at Dorbritz Designs and Dave at MemoryFab, this Fiat is parking harder than any other 500 before
