Re: What did you do to your Imp today?

Well its official new formula paint strippers suck, great for the environment I'm sure but does nothing for its effectiveness. Stripped a number of panels ready for further repairs including a bonnet, removed the inner panel and it's easy to see the reason for them rusting out - absolutely no protec...

Slightly confused with the last post but it has been a long day, just back from Irish Experience.

If the pic of the latch is the new fitting, that is the correct way, if it was fitted otherwise it was wrong before.

They are around but not cheap, mainly squirrelled away and difficult getting people to part with them - rightly so.

Makes restorations much easier and better quality.
