I tend to get my Isetta parts from these people

There is the Isetta owners club of GB  part department and also The Bromley Bubble company but nobody is selling the parts cheap.
Its strange that with so many LHD cars produced around the world that a RHD car turns up in France! ;D  Hope you find what you need.

Doesn't look too bad bodywork wise, usual areas around the front wings. Floor good? They didn't slap too much paint there and the rust tends to form between the ribs and the bitumen sound deadener, the front part usually goes first.

Not tried these people, but their panels look okay in the pictures, and they do a pretty extensive range.

I usually buy at "oldtimertiele" they are fine, but the steel parts are very expensive ... I think the car is not very big yet ...

in terms of the car , the body is completely bloody ..
I need a new door and all the floors are down.

during the return trip the counterweight crossed the floor ...

but it was complete and in France ... so I will not quibble !

isetta this going to help me rebuild my first isetta (purchased already dismounted ... )

Hi Tibo,
Try Jim Hacking Junior at http://www.micro-car.net/index.php/2/
All panels are made in house and are of high quality.  Contact young Jim via : jim@1offsheetmetal.com

I am sure I recognise your Isetta and if it's the one that I think it is then you have a very special car which needs to be restored to a high standard.

They only sell floors and door bottom repairs though don't they?

The floopans look very expensive, basically £500 with the VAT. A new new floor from Germany is half that.  I believe Jim's floors are galvanized, but it still seems a high premium.

Another company that does panels is Radford. Thes were recommended by the IOC, and I expect they produce the repair sections available through the club spares scheme.

Correctly spelt on the page itself, however.

These chaps do what looks like a very nice floor at 239 euro (not sure if that includes tax). However i don't know if they do a RHD floor.

They supply sweeties with the bits!  :D

Tibo,

I have been talking to Tony Marshall and realise the Isetta you  are setting out to restore once was the very proud possession of Lynne Marshall.  It should be on the Register, ask Alastair to check.  Anyway I am sure once the 'gang' know which car it is, its restoration will be followed avidly. All the very best.  Jean
