Re: Sick Tipo...HELP!

Serious MOT fail, so it looks like the journey with my Tipo is over. I am gutted. I can't bear to scrap it so if anyone wants a 1.4 DGT project let me know!!

What's up with it? I can't see you've uploaded any photos showing the number, so we can't check the mot sheet.

I'm sure someone would be interested - hopefully to sort it out, rather than breaking it, as there are very few left now. If you give a bit more information, maybe we can find someone.

Re: Sick Tipo...HELP!

Hi guys, there's loads wrong with it! Reg is F586GGP. Trying to see how expensive the fixes would be and if it's too much if I can store cheaply for now, or pass on to someone who'll love him!

Sorry about this. It looks like a mix of the usual grot spots, which eventually on a Tipo of this age that has been used normally have to be faced. Sill to floor doesn't sound too difficult, the inner wings/anchorages if they are holed are more of a faff. When all put together, its a lot to do. If storing, ideally needs to be heated and/or all the salt removed so it doesn't dissolve quicker so best bite the bullet one way or the other. I've tackled most of this on my silver Tip o so if you need any opinions on prices or repairs I will try to help.

Thanks all for your advice. Appreciated.

I decided to bite the over £300 bullet and attempt to save Salvo.

He's back! MOT passed yesterday.

Some light in the coronavirus gloom. At least I can see him from the window!

A small price to pay for keeping a very rare car on the road. Have you thought about having the entire underside cleaned off and rustproofed?

Yes, I'm definitely going to sort that when this crisis is over! Should have done it earlier, but life got in the way.

Thank you everyone!
