Re: Question on front shocks

Yes, they will fit in fine. Someone also told me that any new schock regardless of the brand would be a hell of a difference compared to the ones i do have now.

Re: Rear brake caliper fixing bolts

They might be just serrated bolts, later ones don't come with holes for safety wire either. 10.9 bolt would work just fine here.

Re: Rear brake caliper fixing bolts

I cant remember now but I have a feeling it was an M12, ~35mm, I've snapped one on mine. Just take a spare one to any shop and you'll get it with no problems, here or back in Poland.

Re: Rear windscreen - seal and rust issues

Re that rust at the back, Remove all the trim, wire brush on an angle grinder, clean completely, paint first in Vactan rust converter(cheap to buy on UK eBay), then a can of zinc primer(a must), then paint with a 2k color coded paint for your Jag from a can(also not too expensive), I'd say enough wo...

Re: Rear windscreen - seal and rust issues

One thing to add here, if this wont be sorted this year then it will be much more expensive to fix next year, its pretty much last moment before it turns into a rotten egg.
