Re: Bonnet/hood wire question

No not a dumb question Andy, though as you've indicated there's no "under bonnet" lights why have wiring for them. Apart from a retro fit maybe ? I have a very vague recollection of this wiring where it disappears at the "Radiator" side (underneath) ... I seem to remember it kind...

Re: One less XJ40

I wouldn't be at all surprised if the driver / owner were not to be visited by the Ghost of Sir William himself .... Indeed it may have been a sighting that caused the crash in the first place :?:

Re: Looking to dip my toes back in

I've been "looking" to purchase another 40 since realiasing I'd gone from three, to zero, (none) in a very short space of time. From what I can tell at 2k (£££'s) the decade between now and then means the "bargains" have gone, the World has turned a few more times and the bandwag...
