Looking for a 93/94 front spoiler panel (USA)

Postby Lightweight » Mon Mar 02, 2020 6:36 am

The lovely mechanic who trashed my car (prior to my ownership) decided it was better to cut the front undertray off rather than remove the lower spoiler. Now everything is exposed and the roads here are worse than I remember in the UK.
So I am on the lookout for a good replacement. I'm not in a hurry as Joleen is off the road currently.
There seem to be very few Jaguars in general in Utah so the chances of finding one in a local breakers are remote.
Thanks, Andy

If it’s any consolation, I have seen that happen loads of times. The same on X300 too. Most bad work/ abuse seems to be by unscrupulous garages rather than owners themselves.
Why spend 15 mins removing something properly when you can rip it to shreds instead?

I have some good parts here, but the overwhelming issue will be the huge cost of transporting a part of this size to you.
Message me for details.

Thanks Naki. I will reach out directly. It may come down to shipping to family in the UK and my collecting on a trip over. Although not sure how well it will survive the baggage handlers..

The part itself is made of fairly robust plastic. Obviously good packaging helps when transporting. When the lower trays are torn off, it would take quite a lot of force to actually do it. A significant effort required to ruin them. But clearly an effort worth making for so many people!

Anyhow. I have a part here of you decide you want it.

Judging by the way the metal was all bent backwards against the normal direction of travel they took great effort to screw things up as much as possible.

Mine got torn up backing up in a snow bank and grounding out on high parking lot concrete stops.

I have a spare in good shape from my parts car, Diamond Blue Metallic colour though so haven't decided whether to bother painting it and fitting it. If not, I'll let you know.

Shipping from Vancouver Island wouldn't be cheap either!

That’s a good point. They can get caught on footpaths/ kerb edging too. It’s usually scrapes off the bottom of the radiator drain cap too.
