FSO 125p help - Restoration - 04-04-2008, 12:54
Hello (I'm new this morning, so if this isn't the right place for the topic I do apologise).

Basically, I need some help.

A few days ago I purchased this;

I have managed to start work on it a small bit;

Then I've started to cut away at some of the panels;

It's really bad, the rot is like nothing I have seen before. Everything has been effected: Sills, panels, engine bay, steering mounts, suspension mounts, all the wheel arches, front and rear bumpers as well.

I do plan on getting it road worthy again, at some point. But I don't know where to start. I think getting the engine out would be a good idea to begin with.

Any tips/advice or help would be mega.

Cheers for reading.

I remember seeing this on ebay a while back. Glad it is hopefully going to be saved. The biggest problem I think you will face is finding new parts and panels. These cars are rare in the UK now. In an ideal world it is better to carefully remove everything from the shell and store it. Then you have a bare shell to work on. I would suggest starting at one end (front or back) and working through one bit at a time. When removing old structural panels such as sills for example I would suggest adding lenths of box section to brace the shell and stop it moving during any repairs. Things like steering and suspension mountings must be in exactly the same place as the designers intended! Be sure to check out and where you will meet some other Fiat enthusiasts and might also get some help finding parts and so on. Good luck and keep me informed of your progress!
