We've had a lot of emails recently from people requesting spare parts for Piazzas, yet when we've asked for the details of their vehicles, all has gone strangely quiet.
Now IPTOC will only provide parts to bona fide IPTOC members OR Piazza/Impulse owners who don't wish to become members (can't think why when it's FREE!) providing the requested vehicle and contact details are given.
We have to take this stance as a) our prime function where parts are concerned is to ensure parts availability for genuine Piazza and Impulse owners (how do I know the enquiries aren't from parts stockholders looking to push prices up?), b) because the chassis number/registration number is often critical when identifying the correct part and c) because the details of every Piazza left on the road/SORNd in the UK is still important to IPTOC - let's be honest!
IPTOC spend a lot of time (and money) searching out and investing in hard-to-find parts to offer ongoing support to keep Piazzas on the road and we're not prepared for that effort to be expended on those who show not even a passing interest in IPTOC, even just from a support perspective.
Please PLEASE be assured that, when providing information to IPTOC at firstname.lastname@example.org it will NEVER be shared with anyone else, you will NEVER receive any spam emails or phishing attempts, you will NEVER receive any unsolicited mail to your home address AND you will NEVER be asked to provide payment card details in any way, shape or form. For the extra wary amongst you, simple provision of a name and telephone number will suffice and I will personally telephone back as soon as I possibly can to help with your enquiry.
So, in the interests of only serving a genuine Piazza requirement, making sure you get the correct parts, and gathering as much, confidentially held, information about the last of our cars left in the UK in order to fully understand our demographic and therefore invest the stockholding money in the wisest fashion, please don't be put off by these requests.
We know of NO OTHER RARE VEHICLE for which such exclusive parts and technical support is available for FREE merely in exchange for a few details; is it really that much to ask? So, we're afraid:
NO DETAILS - NO PARTS!**
The same will apply to those seeking technical advice or scans from the workshop manuals.
**Details such as registration numbers provided for UK cars can, and will be, checked to confirm that they relate to an Isuzu Piazza and are not just a random number given to try and circumvent the system. Registration numbers given without any other required detail will not be counted as sufficient proof of genuine ownership of, or interest in, an Isuzu Piazza.

For those of you who have rusty front wings and have experienced frustration at the lack of decent second hand items, the situation has just got worse. Previously, US/Euro spec wings were still available from Japan (the only difference in them is that instead of a hole for the repeater lamp between the door and the wheelarch, they have a hole at the front end for a marker lamp).
I HAVE JUST HAD NEWS FROM ISUZU THAT NONE OF THE VARIANTS OF FRONT WINGS FOR THE JR PIAZZA ARE AVAILABLE ANY MORE.
IPTOC are looking for a solution but, with the ever-dwindling remainder of Piazzas in the UK, and the reluctance of the 45 or so cars which remain unknown to IPTOC to come forward, wholesale investment in tooling to reproduce wings, either in fibreglass or metal, is out of the question. If anyone knows of any companies or individuals who would be prepared to assist with the setting up of fibreglass moulds or similar on the basis that they would have the UK rights to reproduce such items exclusively for IPTOC, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with "Fibre Glass Wings" as the email title.
