hi folks
iv'e been a bit busy lately what with work and getting on with the imp so thought i'd put an update on progress .
little bit of rot on the front wing to front wheel arch, but it was the only bit of rot apart from a piece 2 inches x 1 inch on the rear passenger floor Shocked
all repaired

repaired and primered


body primed and ready for painting in ford Daytona yellow .




inside ready for paint




undersealed underneath .in wheel arches and sills and box sections using my own concoction of oil grease and bitumen paint sprayed in an underseal gun. ive used this for years on my classics and it too be honest it is as good as the expensive well known brands also this time i've added a tad of phosphoric acid to the mix to help kill the rust too. did a test piece over the last few monthes and it looks promising Cool





more to come when things progress a little further
