  • Ideas how to customise Faema E98 Compact S1

    Hi guys,

    Recently bought a second hand Faema E98 Compact S1, which is in a really good condition for it's age (~17 years old). Replaced a pump, group seal, shower screen and tubes and it's in a working condition.

    But I'd like to change how it looks, so it's more modern. Any ideas what might work well?

    Below is the same model as I have.

    Thanks!

      I had the A1 version (rotary pump and volumetric buttons), essentially identical but a bit wider.

      You could easily paint (or vinyl wrap) the side and rear panels for a completely different look (bright red?).

      If you use vinyl you can easily re wrap in a different colour as you get bored.

      Cheers

        These are a solid beast btw capable of ripper shots and built like a tank. Cooling flush is the only bug bear, which is easy to do.

        Cheers

          Vinyl wrap is a great idea. Non permanent and cheap

            I have been thinking of doing the panels on the Alex, metallic red would be cool. Like you say it’s cheap and reversible.

            Cheers

              I use to have one of these, was a great machine, though it wasn't in as good condition as yours. Most of the panels come away pretty easy, I had plans of giving it a light sand and then buying some medium glitter car paint cans and making it sparkly gold....
