Re: Another Tipo!

Thankfully I have perfect rear quarter panels I took off one of my scrap Tipo's.
I think the arches seem reasonably sound but I need to have a good poke around to confirm. The back window was smashed in this so as a temporary weather proofing measure I put another tailgate on it.

Ah, an inner arch repair under there, definitely time to practice that thin-gauge welding . Although the 'outer' inner arch is less pressed, from memory.

Re: Another Tipo!

Apparently the car is off the road since around the year 2000. Funny I remember parking up a 1990 Tipo the same year.. wish I still had that now!

Yes I do rather like the spoiler. My old 1990 Tipo back in the day had the same spoiler and the grille with the spot lights in it.. wish I still had the grille at least.
Unfortunately that tailgate is now off the car and not sure what the story would be trying to acquire a glass to replace the smashed one..

Re: Another Tipo!

Not sure about Ireland but over here there's probably one on a dusty shelf somewhere waiting for someone to ask for it....

I was lucky to find an exhaust system for a 1.4 1.4ie petrol 15 miles away in Chester, they had an Ebay ad for a similar one but with different flange fittings, I enquired about buying it and when they checked they found the correct one waiting on a shelf, just not advertised.

I did recently see a NOS front windscreen advertised for a Tipo over here however due to dreaded lockdown restrictions with Covid travel is not possible.

I shudder to think of all the useful bits thrown in the skip over recent years and clearouts of dealerships and motor factors.

You were very lucky with the exhaust find blueJohn and no doubt the vendor was delighted to shift it on.

Re: Another Tipo!

Here is my 1990 Tipo from back in the day. Wish I still had that now. Note the grille I really want! Also see the accessory catalogue snapshot. If anyone out there has one of these grilles please get in touch!
