Possibly a long shot, but would anyone have, or know of anyone who has, a decent Y10 tailgate?  Doesn't have to be pristine, just not rusted-through at the bottom lip, as mine is.  I'm also looking for a glovebox lid in beige Alcantara.

Thanks very much for any information,

I may well be able too help but need to check my supplies. I recently acquired a stock of parts and need to sort out what I need myself. I have 3 spare tailgates but can't remember how rusty they are.

I have had a dig in the back of the garage. I have two tailgates I could part with but neither is perfect. One is rust free but has some nasty dents where I suspect somebody reversed into something with a bike rack on the back. The other is dent free but has the first hint of rust in a couple of places under the bottom lip. Is it a grey glovebox lid you need?

Sorry, I see it is beige alcantara you need and that I am sure I can supply.

Thanks Frank - I'll have a word tomorrow with the garage that's doing the work for me and see what their advice is.  I suspect the one with a hint of rust might be better as that can hopefully be stabilised, but I'll see.

thanks again

Not sure whether this should go here or a new thread in the Y10/Y sub-forum, but as well as the parts I've asked about here, I've also needed both doors and the drivers side rear quarter panel, all of which I sourced on ebay, 'new old stock' panels still in their black undercoat.  The rear quarter and the passenger door haven't been a problem, arriving quickly and just what I needed.  The driver's door, on the other hand...

The first one I ordered turned out to be a Cinquecento door!  The Italian supplier of this admitted it was their fault (having bought it as described from a FIAT-Lancia dealer) and has refunded my money, and the door is in my shed await a courier to collect it.   What makes this worse is that they also sent me the correct passenger door - you'd think they'd have noticed they weren't a pair!

No problem, I thought, I'll find another one on ebay, which I did, and it was meant to arrive today.  I came home to find on my doorstep, not a car door, but a pallet-load of 48 bottles of white wine!  Two orders have got mixed up somewhere and I'm hoping I can track the door down soon.  Still, I'm not as disappointed as the person who was expecting the wine and got a car door instead...

At least you can console yourself with a few glasses of wine while you wait for the door.

Here are some pictures. I haven't done anything to clean it up since acquisition and the circumstances for photography were not ideal. I can't work out how to attach them to a PM.

Following a dig in the attic here is a picture of a spare glove box lid and other sundry brown bits. I was sure I had a lot more plastic bits but I suspect I needed the space so dumped them thinking nobody would brown trim again. Anything I have is available if needed.

I definitely have a NOS door skin, just canít remember which side. Should be able to dig it out this weekend

It has plenty of light surface rust on the factory primer finish but nothing that wonít be removed during the paint preparation anyway

Thanks to Frank I now have a tailgate (dented but non-rusty), the glovebox lid, and plenty of 'brown jobs' and I'm sure there'll be a few bits left over at the end if anyone else needs any brown bits.  And some thanks (eventually) to the Italian shippers, I now have a driver's side door, which appears to have gone to Spain first before returning to Italy and then eventually being left on my doorstep last week.  So hopefully the bodyshop will be busy next week!
