Re: Wales Fiat Club

hopefuly i wont need to go to the scrappies as ive just scrapped a cinq and have most of the parts, ill keep n eye out for you though. well altogether it needs a bonnet, slam panel, headlamp, indicator, rad, bumper and wing. cant see anything else damaged. there is a sort of scraping on the cowling of the stearing wheel so i hope the stearing aint f****d. so ill start striping it tomoz see whats what and go from there. gives me a gd excuse to put my abarth kit on now and get it sprayed.

Re: Wales Fiat Club

Is it scraping when it's moving or just when you steer?
I got hit from the side in my old stilo by some d**k in a mk1 panda with no lights back in december. The idiot spun me a full 180 degrees and damn near flipped my stilo MW he hit me that hard. The body damage on mine wasn't too bad but I had a bent rear axle. Game over for an 03 plate stilo!

His panda was well buggered though

Probably just body damage but it could quite possibly have bent the axle just enough to cause the wheel to drag on steering.

I know right?
Bastard is suing me for wiplash for him and his 2 kids* as well! The cheeky bugger! Now I'm stuck in a piddly little 1.4 with a crap gearbox.



*By the way. guess who wasn't in the car with him at the time of the accident?

Re: Wales Fiat Club

i think i just put the steering wheel outa shape a lil coz i bent it the other way and its ok now, i manage to save the wing, found a rad and headlamp with indicator in the garage and got my old abarth bumper. ive pulled the slam panel out with another car earlier but i think ill put my punto back on the road and take my cinq off the road untill its all sorted.

He never said his children were in there when they wasnt did he?

i would go and pay him a visit when its all over and give him proper wiplash lol

I had a 16v in my old mk2. I was trying to get myself a 6 speed for it for ages! Never got one though.

Shame about the Cinq though. Are you going to replace it or just stick with the punto?
