Mia likes my new Tex rear view mirror

Fitted today and after setting the best view angle for the driver I went down to the Hout Bay Harbour.

Mia found a better use for my new mirror and this had me re setting the angle suitable for driving!

The Imp Club in the UK now stocks Tex products, I can recomend them for quality and service.

The Imp front panel, sans Lucas light fittings

Soon to be fitted and next week, we have a whole car to put back together, just starting was a mind game!

Click on the image to see it full size.

We found the car to be very straight and with hardly any damage that a little work did not correct, with 92,000 miles on the odometer this 1971 Hillman Imp Deluxe was in great shape.

Its also a one owner car!

South Africa's new Hillman Imp

The idea is to make the car as new as we can, the entire car has now been re painted, that is underneath, inside and out.

We will receive the car by a specialist road trailer soon.

The car needs a nice clean with a wash leather then we are ready to start re fitting the shell, all the suspension is in place right now.
