Re: What did you do to your Imp today?

Hi Scott. Mine has rusted / bubbled on the rear drivers panel between the lights. I’d be really interested in a repair panel / cutout to replace that.

Re: What did you do to your Imp today?

Steve The Blue one would be good for that, there is a good covering of body filler spreading from the lower corner where its been repaired but no rust around the light area. £25 The good news is I'm coming over for the Irish Experience at end of May so can bring it with me.
