Looks like a great project to be honest, and like Fluffyduff says never underestimate how well that red will polish up

From the pictures, looks like the paint only need a proper detail, but if you say it's f3cked, then it's f3cked..

good luck with it, and post as you progress along.

Wow-nearly looks in as rag order as my 155.

I have a set of manual mirrors that I might not use-in red.

I know of a bumper-but it has no headlight washers

You can get an aerial (bee sting) cheaply on e-bay (you're lucky you still have the mount, mine is missing).

My spare wheel is the same as the rims that are on your car-I don't really want it, so if you have a different spare in the boot, I'd be happy enough to do a swap.

All the best, parts are scarce enough.

P.S. I'd be interested to see a price for the Ragazzon too-didn't know if it would suit the 155.

Cowboys Ted, they're a bunch of cowboys!

hey best of luck with the project, you'll have one hell of a car there when its finished. I bought a project 3 years ago, a Lancia Dedra (funnily enough based on Tipo underpinnings as the 155 was!), it was sitting around for 3 years before i bought it & there is a long way to go to get it back to looking its best!
Take your time with it, enjoy the project, i know i am!

Andy fair play, I love to see lads keeping 155s on the road. They are getting a bit popular now over here for some reason. There is a a few lads on here now with 155s so feel free to pm myself or any of the other lads for advice. This thread has a few of the 155ers from Ireland

Honestly?
In my opinion if its that bad then you're better off buying clean 155 and keeping that one for the parts....

i'd agree, if you're going to have to buy another 155, probably buya decent one & use the current one for parts.

Ok so this 155 is now mine-cheers Andy.

I reckon this will become my 'road legal' 155-biggest job will be the paint. I have plans for the other 155...m04 do you have a 155 track car??

Yes, got that cheers.

My first 155 isn't really fit for road use, so I'm going to make a 'proper' track car out of it-strip it down and make it as light as possible first and then take it from there.

If you were to ask me for one single part to upgrade for track use I would say it's the rear ARB.

The brakes on the 2.0L cars are fine for track use. The 1.8 brakes would need to be replaced if you plan on pushing on hard.
