Hi All. The "Triple C" project Imp is indeed in my workshop needing a bit of a rebuild. It is looking a little sad for itself. The front has taken a battering,the front suspension mount is back and up about 3/4" and the front panel and spare wheel well are rippled. Luckily I have a very good used front panel complete with SP well and legs. Not too much rust in the shell but it had a cover sill on the drivers side. When removed it revealed a big dent running from 1/2 way along the door aperture to the rear wheel and the floor edge is pushed in about 1/2" and the o/s/r wing has been replaced before becoming a rally car and 1/2 of it has been popriveted on. Another problem I have discovered is that because the cage wasn't pointed round the shell the 'B' posts at waist level are an inch further apart than they should be and the driver's side rear pocket bin has cracked and lifted from the rear seat pan. Nothing that can't be put right. The sand blast man was in yesterday and is going to pop round when the weather allows and test blast an area to see if the paint will come off easily, other wise its Nitromors. Will post some pics when I get round to taking some. Cheers. Mike
