Re: New member from Australia - Introduction

Hi Trevor A belated welcome from just up the road in Leeming! Blame not logging on here much these days.....and broken email alerts. That’s a pretty tidy example you’ve acquired. Congratulations! Funny thing but headlining is on my list as well, but I need to sort out an aircon compressor seal first...

Re: eBay motor bin.

Its a real problem at present as when Border Force went zero tolerance they didn't establish any guidance as to what procedures or processes to follow to ensure a car could pass inspection. So you could get a car inspected overseas before shipment but they may not accept the inspection when it gets ...

Re: Classified Adverts Down Under

It looks like a decent car by all accounts. Judging by the leather, it must have been imported or very well looked after? Further digging reveals that it received Australia Compliance in late 2009 so its a private import. Decoding the VIN number suggests that its either imported from Hong Kong or J...

Re: Classified Adverts Down Under

The asking price for this one is a bit on the low side, even allowing for the fact it’s a private sale, so it could be a private import. Private imports here always sell at a significant discount. Still it puts the asking price of the XJ81 mentioned by Pim in perspective, eg a tat optimistic :) http...

Re: eBay motor bin.

Replacements required on a yearly basis? Not that often and depends a lot on how much heat and sunlight the car sees. My Discovery only lasted 9 years, Old Range Rover 14 and Lady P at 25 years will be getting her first recovering this year. Interesting. Probably why I had a chap from Australia enq...

Re: eBay motor bin.

Tin worm is not a major issue here. If a car has any significant rust it’s usually parted out. The major problem here is interiors. Leather and wood don’t like the summer heat. Ditto headliners but replacement is not expensive.

Cheers

Re: Classified Adverts Down Under

Just copying a couple of posts in the eBay page for an XJ12 for sale in Oz. OK, it's not on the 'bay, but I didn't want to clutter this forum with a standalone topic. A good friend thought I'd find this funny: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Jaguar-XJ12-1993/SSE-AD-5833900/?Cr=0, and I deci...

Re: Living with Lady Penelope in the Wild Wild West

I had posted an XJ12 repro condenser source in another thread: https://www.xj40.com/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=998442&p=184981#p184981 No need to go through the hassles of having a custom unit made. This one fits and works. A belated thanks for that link. A lot of googling here turned up a number...

Re: XJ81 Air conditioning condenser

Just to add an update. I can confirm that an X300 condenser will fit and with a bit of rerouting, the top hose from the compressor will connect, despite the X300 top pipe exiting at 90 deg compared to the XJ81 one. Further details on page 12 of Lady Penelope's Blog. https://www.xj40.com/viewtopic.ph...
