Re: X308 Quads into XJ40 (Fitted with Pics)

I like your ingenuity at solving a future issue of possible scarce parts and increasing costs of buying parts like headlamps and I must say it looks very good.

Well done.

Gary.

Re: Boot light

Hi Naki, Yes this switch looks like damp many moons ago has got to it, I'm going to strip it out and have a look. I'm hoping it's not a loom issue, the boot is a second hand one that I fitted and have fitted all my original parts to it and have re threaded the wiring in through to the rear of the bo...

Bulb failure light is now out on the dash. :D My attention will now turn to the underneath ...

First ride in a Cullinan

Yesterday I had a chance to get a ride in a Cullinan no less. You either love it or hate it, your comments good, bad or ugly are welcome. The interior surroundings and comfort are very cosseting and luxurious but a 4x4 RR, I'm not sure. Call me old fashioned, but a Rolls Royce should be a super luxu...

Re: Boot light

Thanks Derek,

Found it exactly where you said. I would never have found that hidden up under the deck panel. :?

Re: had a drive in an E-Type today

Oooh

What's it like to drive, have always loved the E type expecially the the fixed head model ( I think more attractive )

Boot light

Can anyone tell me what makes the boot light come on.

Is there some sort of switch that turns the light on an off as you open and shut the boot :?:

I can't see how this works, am I missing something really simple. :D

Hi Aidan,

Thank you, the pictures are deceiving, it looks almost finished but I still have a fair way to go until I'm happy for it to hit the road.

Re: XJ40 4.0 re-birth.

Looking good, nice to see a project nearing completion! So many promising projects end up unfinished, well done. Thanks Carl, I agree, many projects can stall and end up unfinished. I keep focused and concentrate on one job at a time without trying to do multiple parts of the car at a time. Failure...

Re: XJ40 4.0 re-birth.

The light at the end of the tunnel is getting a little closer, most of the assembly work is done but there is still many hours and weekends of work to do and of course all the fettling and detailing that will need doing. I still have the near side rear wing to finish off and paint due replacing the ...
