Hi everyone
Not posted in a long time but there hasn't been much happening lately because of the bl***y snow :evil:
The welding is nearly done!!! :D
Working forwards from the back the battery tray needs welding in, the front of the driver's side sill needs doing, there is a small hole in front of the driver's side front wheel and there is a tiny hole on the floor on the passenger side.
So not much welding to do now and when thats done we can put the car on the trailer and get the bodywork looking the right shape as it will be much easier to work on at that height :)

Hi everyone
Rolled the Imp out of the garage because dad had been having a go with the new sander he bought for the car :)
It is brilliant because the bottom/sanding face covers a large area and is very flat which is vital for getting the panels right.

Just the one picture of the rear driver's side arch :)

Sanded abit of the black paint off the roof to find the original gold paint :D

Hi everyone
Got home to find the hole at the front of the car welded up and properly shaped with a light skim of filler :D
Image
The sander i mentioned yesterday has to be the best £16 I didn't spend (see what i did there :lol: ) it is brilliant for the long flat parts of the car and gets them straight as anything :)

The whole front of the sill has been welded up :) Thanks Dad :D
Just the battery tray, small hole in the floor and a small bit of corrosion on the front left wheelarch to be welded up and it should be solid :)

Hi everyone
Quite happy with the progress made the last few days :)
Between us, me and Dad have got the driver's rear quarter about right, it will need a bit of finishing when it comes to prepping for paint but I'm quite happy with it :)
Image
Image
Image
I need a front seat, the same colour and pattern as the one in the picture.
Image
I also need a rear bottom seat squab.

Hi everyone
Got the Imp out after school today.
I have now got a nice clean shiny underseal free driver's side sill :D I just need to finish taking the dent out with the light skim of filler I put in there earlier today
I have also sorted the dent that was on the very rear corner of the driver's side
I got so into the work outside I forgot about being pretty cold and about taking pictures so I will try and get some tomorrow.
About 15 minutes more light and I think I might have been able to get the sill, bottom of the door, front corner and the back of the front arch in primer :roll:

Hi everyone
Yesterday Dad cut the rest of the old heater box out then started making room for the blue heater box i was given and we reckon it will be fine when it's all welded in and it will add the much needed strength back into the front panel.
Image
I need to make the small panel that you can see missing in this picture next to the heater box.
Image
The heater box looks a right mess in this picture but i spent a bit of time today cleaning it all up and it is solid which is the main thing.
I'm happy with the driver's side and how its come out after i put it in primer today, i re-did the swage line above the rear arch because it was no where near sharp enough for me :)
Pictures! :D

I extended my heater box, so I can fit a large heater matrix, and put a 90 degree angle on the heater intake (gives loads more fresh air into the cabin) , and still fit the horn in here

This will save you from blanking the rest of the hole in the front panel!

Hi Jeff
That looks very smart thankyou for the pictures :) Me and Dad spoke about doing this with my one but reckon we would do a much better job of it if we had a band saw so that both cuts in the boxes would be dead straight, and I think Dad is welding the standard box in as we speak but I will definitely keep this idea in mind if I ever do the heater box again.

Hi everyone
I got the driver's side front wheel arch in primer today
Image
Image
Image
Ignore the bits I didn't paint, i will do them when I take the front suspension off :)
Talking of suspension I am thinking of doing the wishbones and trailing arms in red primer then matte lackering them becuase i think this will give a dort of 60's/70's look, any comments or opininons on that would be good.
We were about to start welding in the heater box but the wire line that the welding wire runs through was knackered which is a pain because it would of been good to get that done :(

James, what about using a chassis black for the suspension arms? :idea: It is available from Frost's Auto Restoration Techniques and probably other suppliers too. I think it is basically a tough primer but one that doesn't need a top coat.

It's a pity that the liner in your welding machine was knackered. :( I don't think they're very expensive or difficult to come by. :wink:

I hope you get that heater box fitted soon and continue to make such excellent progress on the car.

That heater box extension by Jeff is a great idea and a useful modification! :mrgreen: I know you're not doing it on your car though. :wink:

Hi everyone
I have got both passenger side wheelarches in primer today :)
Image
Image
Once again, ignore the bits i missed on the front wheelarch i will do those when i take all the suspension off.
We had a poke around on the front wheelarch, we knew there was som filler there but as always it turned out worse than it looked :(
Image
Image
I hope to get the rear part of the passenger side sill "right" tomorrow, and i also want to get a bit done in the engine bay :)

The arches look smart, James. I think your suspension arms will too, in lacquered red primer. :wink:

That front wheelarch looks gnarly. Will you or your dad make a section to let in or will you buy a repair panel and cut it to suit?

Hi IM
I think we'll make a repair panel our selves, we have done for everything else apart from the rear arches and the rear sill sections.
Thinking again I'm not so sure about the red primer'ed suspension arms, I think they'd attract quite a bit of attention from the old bill :roll: I do think they would look quite smart though.

Hi everyone
A bit more progress today :)
I had only stripped a bit of the engine bay and primered it so i did the other half of it today.
Image
This was it before.
I took the coil and the luminition off, I'll probably flog the luminition on eBay unless somebody else wants to make me an offer, its no use to me becuase i don't have the bit that goes in the Dizzy.
Image
Image
This was the engine bay afterwards, there was a lot of underseal on the underside of the parcel shelf so i got all of that off aswell.
I also had a poke around at the rear dampers, found a suitable screwdriver and tried adjusting them and I'm so happy that they still work, Set as soft as they'll go made the rear nice and bouncy with quite a bit of travel and set as stiff as they'll go made it feel like a race car when you press on the rear wing :D As long as they suit the spring length of Monte's then i will most likely use them on the road :)
Image
Image
This is the rear sill extension on the passenger side and as you can see from the photo isn't quite the right shape so I spent another half an hour on it before i came in from being too cold :roll:
Will get some more pictures tomorrow.
She is starting to get somewhere now, quite slowly but i can see the progress :)

Hi everyone
My number plates that i ordered from Race Retro and I'm really happy with them :)
Image
What do you think?
After coming home from Race Retro i had lost all enthusiasm after talking to Peter James himself about insurance, it really made me feel as though what i was doing with this car was completely pointless, My aim is to be able to use the car, not just for it to sit there :( :roll:
But ahh well, we will try and jump that hurdle when we get to it :roll:

I'm sure something can be worked out regarding getting you insured, James. It may take some doing, though.

Hi everyone
Not alot has happened lately due to the weather which has really put a dampner (sorry :lol: ) on everything :(
Me and Dad have been talking though and I think that if I can't get the car insured for me for a sensible amount of money, I'll just leave the race springs and dampers on, put the bucket seat, roll cage and harness back in, put the 875 sport in the back of it and do some autosolos in it, Dad will have to add it to his insurance so that he can drive it to the events, though.
So watch out Chris Benoy! :wink:
I will crack on with the car when it's not arctic outside, I promise :D

James,

On the insurance front PJ has always seemed to match or beat FJ in recent years so hopefully he'll come up with a competing policy for 17-24 yr olds now that FJ have announced their scheme.
If I told you I was a pathological liar, would you believe me?

Have faith man! :) all will be fine, i think the best bet would be to get a cheep modern car and insure that in your name (in the same company as your dads classic policy),then get your dad to add you to his classic policy! ( then you will be able to drive his stiletto also! ;) added bonus!

Anyway this is what i plan to do, i am hoping it should work out to be the cheapest option :) best of luck!

We've got a ford fiesta that I suppose I could be a named driver on, I'm not sure Dad would let me anywhere near his stiletto, it's his baby :)
When you say get Dad to add me to his policy, do you mean add me on there with brown Imp?

Have faith man! :) all will be fine, i think the best bet would be to get a cheep modern car and insure that in your name (in the same company as your dads classic policy),then get your dad to add you to his classic policy! ( then you will be able to drive his stiletto also! ;) added bonus!

Anyway this is what i plan to do, i am hoping it should work out to be the cheapest option :) best of luck!

We've got a ford fiesta that I suppose I could be a named driver on, I'm not sure Dad would let me anywhere near his stiletto, it's his baby :)
When you say get Dad to add me to his policy, do you mean add me on there with brown Imp?

Yes i did, sorry i forgot to add that bit! :)

Not alot has happened lately due to the weather which has really put a dampner (sorry :lol: ) on everything :(
Me and Dad have been talking though and I think that if I can't get the car insured for me for a sensible amount of money, I'll just leave the race springs and dampers on, put the bucket seat, roll cage and harness back in, put the 875 sport in the back of it and do some autosolos in it, Dad will have to add it to his insurance so that he can drive it to the events, though.
So watch out Chris Benoy! :wink:
I will crack on with the car when it's not arctic outside, I promise :D

While I hope you do manage to get insurance on it and use it as a road car, that plan B sounds rather good 8)

Well once you have passed your test you are welcome to have a go in the Clan as well. (Can do solos from 16 onwards without licence but need to be in a 4 seater + car with less than 1600cc engine I believe)
