JRS 898F - MK1 Sunbeam Stiletto

Post by impanator93 » Tue Feb 04, 2014 4:47 pm

Hi Folks,

After being persuaded by my local impers I thought i'd put up a thread on my Stiletto.

I got the car not long after I turned 16 as my first restoration project (and first car) and I'm still working on it to date! My Initial plan was to get it to in a road worthy state and use it as my everyday car when I passed my test - oh how things have changed! It has ended up being a full scale bare metal restoration.

Although I started working on the car straight away, I took a couple of years out when I started my Uni course. Since then I've been working on it most days (and nights) for the past year now and I finally have a solid Imp, all be it currently a shell!

Thanks for having a look Imp028

Dan

Then I moved on to the body work. The Imp needed all its wheel arches (inner and outer), rear corners (inner and outer), front Corners, section to the rear of the floor, H brackets, section to the front of the window replaced and lower sections of the roof under the vynal sorted out. I think there might have been more if I'm honest :lol:

After all the welding was finished I stripped the car back to a bare shell and sent it off to get shot blasted and etched. Since then All the running gear has been blasted, painted and I painted the floor too :D

Now Its just a chase of getting it back on its wheels and off to paint!!!!! YALDY! :twisted:

Hats of to Daniel for tackling this as a first project with no experience and little help.

All the work is being done outside with a fencing panels for a windbreak and a roof as his only shelter - so doubly outstanding.

I second that, i met Daniel at the Perth national and he reminded me very much of myself when i was younger, i could tell he is very keen about imps, happy to get his hands dirty and stuck in to the job, which i find these days from many youngsters is super rare (maybe you Scots' are just a hardy bunch :D ), in years to come you will have gained skills that only come from getting on with the job, even when it doesn't got to plan you have gained experience, and my friend says; experience is proportional to the number of tools and hardware you've destroyed :lol:

Dan you're doing a great job and i look forward to the updates.

I look forward to seeing more piccies of the build-up.

Thanks for the kind words guys it means a lot :) The club and it's members are such a help. I think Scott's inbox must be bursting with questions from me, Brian u've had your fair share too! :lol:
experience is proportional to the number of tools and hardware you've destroyed
I must be getting pretty experienced then haha :oops: :lol:

I've not long messaged Fiberclass for a set of fiberglass doors to go with the boot and bonnet I bought from him previously (what a quality job he does btw!) So needless to say I'm pretty excited but I bet the posty is going to hate me even more... They should relocate their sorting office to my back garden, would save them a fortune in fuel for their vans haha :lol:

Tonight's job is going to be building up the rear wishbones so hopefully that goes to plan!

Scott - I spoke to Bob at the club spares and he's sending out the bushes and seals for that king pin so hopefully I won't have a wobbly kingpin soon :roll:

nice project, keep the updates coming as it always helps others and gives enthusiasm. It's great seeing young people involving themselves in classic cars, it's what the future of the hobby needs.

Hi Daniel,
Good so see the great work that you are doing to bring JRS back to life. It is also good to see the photographs of the restoration of the car which held fond memories for the Scott family. I am delighted that it has found a new life in your ownership and that you will enjoy the pleasure of driving it soon. Keep up the good work look forward to following the progress.
All the best
Mike and Fran Scott

Hi Mike,

I'm so happy you've seen the thread! I was really hoping to have it done by the forthcoming eccoss but unfortunately my self and the car cant make it :oops: I think it should be finished later this year if I keep working at it but I doubt it will see the road till summer 2015 when there isn't a gritter in sight! :evil: I hope you're all well, say hi to Fran for me please! :D

Today I received a set of competition rear shoes for the imp from Mike on the forum, they look really good. That's the last piece of the puzzle for the rear arms, everything has been blasted and 2 pack painted, new wheel cylinders, adjusters and bolts all nice and shiny :wink:

I have been smited with the worst form of flu on the planet this week.... MAN FLU! So I've not worked on the car so far this week. Hopefully I'll get a good crack at it on Saturday!

That Man flu was some serious stuff at least its over now!

Today I stripped the roof of all the old glue and paint and any bits of the car where some surface rust is starting to show. Tomorrow when i can get ahold of some etch primer ill get it covered up.

I'm really starting to get itchy feet about the car - it needs painted.... NOW! All the suspension is on it and can go back on its wheels at any time so I feel like I'm just dithering about now :lol: Unfortunately because of where the car lives, more or less outside in the cold , I wont be able to get the shell prepped and and primed myself to save some pennies. I'm going to try and get the painter to come out and give me quote for it getting it painted inside and out, I just hope ill still be able to afford to eat for the rest of the year!!!!! :? :o

I JUST WANT IT FINISHED :twisted:

Hey guys, not posted for a while! I have had my head in books studying for exams handing in courseworks for Uni..... not much fun!

I got a quotation from a painter for a bare metal respray on the imp and he quoted me £5K - As you can imagine my jaw hit the floor at that one! So my plans have changed and I'm doing as much of the filler work as I possibly can before handing it over to a painter to finish it off and make it shiny.

I decided to start on the rear wing and corner and it is TAKING FOREVER! every time I think I have it straight I find another imperfection, this being said I think I should have the panel as good as I'm going to get it by mid week and the painter can finish it to 100%

Keep at it with the body work, Dan. :wink: You would be amazed how much work it can take shaping panels, even those that don't seem too bad to begin with. :shock: When you think it's flat, dust a guide coat onto it and hit it again with the sanding blocks. Then fill, shape and guide coat it again... And repeat... And repeat... :mrgreen:

It can take a long time but you should be rewarded with lovely flat panels.

Cheers IM! Its the way my back panel seems to flare out the way behind the door, i think ive accidentally made the body a bit wider than standard :lol: so it's so hard to block out cause I end up catching other little bits of the car. Whilst doing this I have decided to smooth the arches too, they are already rolled and flared so should make it look even more aggressive when its got some alleycats stuffed under them haha :twisted:
If you want it good you have to pay, its how things are I'm afraid.
Oh don't I know it pal that's why everything has cost me a fortune on this car :D

It doesn't have to cost a fortune, it just takes time, I used a long steel rule to make sure the contour is smooth and the crease line flows properly, don't get too hung up on smoothness for a start, get the shape with 80 or 120 grit then go to 240, personally I use them dry or you can have trouble later on with micro blisters. First coat of primer on bare steel ideally should be etch primer, then follow on with a high build primer

Don't sweat the tiny imperfections, you can locally build these areas with primer, it's what the pros do. When you've got a panel close to straight get some paint on it in a similar colour, it will be a good base for the metallic, but also seal the primer.

Keep at it you're doing a fine job.

Thanks for your input guys, it's always helpful!

I'm going to go along to the paint shop this weekend and get some more supplies. I need some more filler, primer and I'm going to buy some gloss paint in a similar shade of blue to the final colour to seal the filler / primer as Brian has suggested. Hopefully this will be the last shopping spree before the final paint goes on! :shock:

You'd be better doing the doors first and then finishing the bodywork around them other wise you may find the gaps/ swage lines/ flushness may not be what you want or expect.

Hi Mike,

Oh yes I'm still enthusiastic! I'm working really hard on it at the moment as I'm trying to get it in paint for my birthday (5th anniversary of me having the car :o ) Then I think the car is getting moved to a family member's garage to avoid it getting fenced in by the builders over the wall - can't wait to put the heater on in winter! :D I'm praying I can get it finished and insured for next summer.

Best wishes
Dan
