Re: Sick Tipo...HELP!

Brilliant advice both, thanks!

This will be the next mission, hopefully it will be something obvious.

...I'm also looking to spruce up the exterior bits - does anyone know a decent supplier for Tipo badges? Mine are faded to beige... I'm after proper blue ones or a potential way of restoring these!

Ta, as always!

Re: Sick Tipo...HELP!

I did have a go at trying to restore one of mine. Blue paint not too difficult to match but didn't look good with the chrome worn off the lettering and no real answer to this. Eventually found all badges for my 1.4 i.e.S model on eBay and replacing them is straightforward (I used a gentle application with a heat gun to soften the original glue)Some badges are interchangeable with other Fiats but you might struggle to find the DGT side flashes which I think are unique to early model Tipos. Good luck!

Re: Sick Tipo...HELP!

Thanks both - think I might have found the DGT badges from an Italian eBay seller - typing 'Tipo DGT scritta' seemed to do the trick! I did consider paint, and still might give it a go, but realistically I think import is the way to go - for the DGT badges at least and the early Tipo boot badge. Others look possible through Partsworld. Ta!
