Re: Rust and more rust

Pure luxurious gorgeousness there, you lucky chap.

My seats have this dishevelled wheatfield vibe going on. Some days I literally yearn for grey!

How is the bodywork coming along?

Re: Rust and more rust

As soon as it warms up a bit I'll survey the wreckage again. How lucky you are to be whizzing around in a functional Tipo bar exhaust, even a wheatfield lol !

Re: Rust and more rust

Hi , Jonti , thats one hell of a good job you are doing with the Tipo , I have never seen one that bad !
I am a big fan of the Tipo , I bought mine at 1 year old in 1990 for 5500. and still have it , planning to post some pictures but I think you need 5 posts before you can upload photos, as you can see I am a new member.
Keep up the good work.

There was a slight catastrophe which forced a workaround. I've been taking pics of progress however and I will get something up in the next couple of weeks

Re: Rust and more rust

How's the Tipo coming along, Jonti? I've been away awhile... Hope all's going well with the rebuild!

Cheers for asking, the red one has met it's end after next door's caravan rolled back down the hill and collided with it. I'll post a pic of the devastation when I can extract it again from my garage. However this enabled me to acquire another Tipo and I'll start a new thread about it. Autumn was devoted to getting this one back on the road and it needs much more work - looks are deceiving. In the meantime here's a pic. I myself like silver on a Tipo, although many cars are silver these days.

Both doors and the rear wing, also the inner rear wing were taken out, it's a big caravan

Added to which, rust in the floor, front sills and inner wings behind the front wheels were problems still to solve. On the silver one, the first two were basically intact, though the inner wings were equally bad.

Re: Rust and more rust

That's a great shame.

You're lucky, not only to have found another Tipo, but to have found it so quickly!
