Re: Tinted front screen, how dark are we talking?

I'm going to say 80% sure re Coventry. That said, I cant even remember what year we had that meeting, must have been 2012 or 2013 I think? Hopefully Naki or maybe Derek can come to the rescue :lol: TBH for daily driver that tinted band is a blessing, my friend merc w211 has it and its amazing, I hav...

It will be something like this:

I'm pretty sure I saw one 40 in Coventry with such screen and it looked ok. I wouldn't mind one myself.

Re: IN DESPERATE NEED OF

How about heating it up and then straightening it? Might be quickest way to sort it out?
While in there set the butterfly gap and TPS to operate correctly at ~0.6V when closed to as close to 5V as possible at WOT, that normally makes the biggest difference ;)

Re: 1994 Daimler Double Six

I've swapped few condensers on 40s and 300s, each old one was leaking and pretty much non removable because when you attempt to remove it, they fall apart :roll: On my old 40 I had to replace the condenser, drier and and top hose to get it running but after that all worked well, AC systems are gener...

Re: Which is the better purchase - 1990 XJ40 or 1994 XJ81?

Probably controversial, but I think the advantages of the V12 are almost entirely romantic. The 4 litre is much less trouble and effort for almost identical performance. The V12 also makes the car more nose heavy. The V12 makes the car more exotic, but a well maintained 4.0 can be used like a moder...

Re: New site from JCP.

Site is fine, you lot are overreacting :lol: To be honest, its mobile age and previous site wasn't mobile friendly.

Re: L275 WOR - Jaguar XJR 4.0 Auto

First one was cheapo chinese, rubber ring split and I couldnt find a replacement for it. Second one was a very similar Wurth which now leaks like a sieve :roll:
Sprayer bottle seems better now.
