A day at the office goes like this, Hillman Imp door glass fitting.

At the moment the total rebuild of the 1971 Hillman Imp Deluxe has reached the re fitting of the door glass, not my favourite job as they had specialists fitting glass when the car was new and its now a learning process,.

Coppaslip as was applied originally.

So just when you understand the process on the first door the second door goes so much faster and then you forget all about it as there may not be another job like this for some years?

The stop bar has to be in the correct position to make sure the vent window opens just far enough.

The frames were blasted and cleaned then sprayed with DTM black gloss paint.

Fitted and working well, even the original rubbers are in good shape.

One Hillman Imp vent light refitted, its a days work to do one and the wind down window in the same door.

How easy can this be?  try it and see!
