Re: Solent Blue XJ12 L527KWC

Top marks for that repair piece, lovely looking thing! The large wiring loom grommet is also a PITA to sort, I had even been able to watch the water travelling through into the footwell of mine when I first started poking around. Keep up the good fight, lovely car you have to your credit.

Re: Restoring a 92' XJ40 4.0

Excellent, a spare parts car of the same year is a great idea. Keep up the enthusiasm and the updates, there has yet to be a problem that cannot be solved by this forum it is full of tormented souls who love cutting up and welding their cars :D

Re: XJ40 Lattice Alloys x5

Couple of things I've been asked: I had arranged with The Wheel Specialist in Inverness to refurbish these once I had got them home from collecting them. I promptly cancelled this once I had got my hands on them as I could live with the minor imperfections the best 4 had. They do not appear to have ...

XJ40 Lattice Alloys x5

Hello all, I trust everybody is staying safe, and getting on with some jobs that have been on the list. I've been kept busy with work which is very fortunate for me, I do however wish I had a bit more time for the Jag than work on the new house at present. An update for my car thread is long overdue...

Re: Leg room for the tall chap..

I'm 6'7, and drove my 40 daily for 2 years. You will already be used to being too tall for door frames and stooping into most vehicles, the 40 is a low machine, and it's often only noticeable after a full day on the motorway and getting out at the other end.
