As mentioned, a lot of the Imp’s wide body has been replaced with nonferrous materials. The most obvious is that deck spoiler, decklid, hood, fenders, bumpers, and doorskins. Dig the sewer pipe–sized hole in the grille that connects to the mouth of the mammoth supercharger? Dig the 6-inch cowl hood? Dig the vibe? Which way should you run? Chris did all the body modification at his Simi Valley home. He rubbed and rubbed and rubbed some more. Then it was time for the torch, actually a PPG ’62 Roman Red and clear basecoat, dutifully applied by that one-man orchestra named Chris. CHP
