Re: fiat cars in scrap yards.

Does anybody know of a Car scrapper/breaker in Mansfield? As it may be cheaper to get a dash from a scrappie car that still works

Re: fiat cars in scrap yards.

Hey you guys

For a while I have been trying to find a front wing for my Bravo in a specific colour but im a bit stuck now. I have called all the scrap yards in reasonable driving distance. Then had the bright idea of messaging everyone on ebay who listed "breaking fiat" still no luck.

Id like to find something sooner rather than later as the pillar on my car has a small spot of rust near the panel gap. Its making me a bit paranoid so I want to fix the rust and replace the panel in one long weekend.
I can arrange a TNT collection through work so distance is no obstacle.

passenger side front wing in colour code 387/A (very Light purple/gray)
(The colour code can be found on the back of the boot lid on a black and silver sticker.)

Car is; Fiat Bravo P-Reg 1996


If spoted in a scrappy let me know
Cheers

Re: fiat cars in scrap yards.

Just wanted to say hi to everyone who is passionate about fiats. with regards to scrap yards its a crying shame they end up in there. i have owned lots of cars over the yrs, and i must admit that driving a fiat is so much fun...

Re: fiat cars in scrap yards.

Black derv Tipo 3dr, two Uno's one white and one blue not sure on any other details, and a blue Tempra again not sure on engine details in Loom's in Derby.

All cars seemed fine bodywork wise so I suspect engine or electrical fault.

The tipo is minus a wiper motor and right hand side indicator however thanks to moi and stinks of cigs so I wouldn't touch the interior.

Always a fair few Puntos in there too, but Tipo's are generally hard to find, so heads up everyone!
