Re: 1966 The Air Ride Imp

The centre caps are very hard to get hold of, for the time being I'm going to try and buy universal ones or make something

Re: 1966 The Air Ride Imp

Ive got a wheely big update 8) 8) I love how the new wheels look, they'll make a great road wheel- the ronals are still my show wheels.

Re: 1966 The Air Ride Imp

I haven't driven it yet but there seems to be an improvement in both speed and accuracy when moving between saved heights, so fingers crossed it'll be worth it.

Re: 1966 The Air Ride Imp

The imp has had a lot of attention this weekend, its been set up on the rolling road and I've fitted the interior and taken it out for a drive! These pictures show its new colour, a metallic green that is pretty damn close to the shade of forest green. https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xa...

A local body shop let me use their gear for the respray, it wouldn't have been possible without them!
Those wheels have now gone to a new home :( I couldn't justify keeping them.
