Re: Jaguars visit RR, revival weekend

Hi Naki,

I will enquire and find out what I can organise, normally if we get enough and you all come as a club and in your Jaguars of course :) we can park the cars in the courtyard.

Regards
Gary.

Re: XJ40 4.0 re-birth.

If you ever get to removing the rear a-frame here's a worst case scenario. Naki recently supplied me with a spare a-frame which must have came from a sunken 40 as it was very rusty and both bolts next to the bush were proper seized solid and completely rusted. On one side even the large spacer was ...

Re: First ride in a Cullinan

For me the Phantom that we first built was a fantastic car, big, brash and in your face and unashamably a Rolls. Gary. Me too. The Phantom has huge presence, and still looks brilliant/ every bit what a Tolls should be. Another car I would happily own if the chance ever presented itself (ie lottery ...

Re: First ride in a Cullinan

Forgot I posted this up. Some interesting takes on the name :? Sadly the comment about the veneer (wood) is that the days of highly polished walnut burr and Birdseye maple are considered old hat and the current fashion is open pore wood finishes as in this particular vehicle. However, whatever venee...

Re: Rust is our enemy and we shall defeat it

I'm currently experimenting with rust removal on my old calipers. As you probably all know, Deox-C works amazing when it comes to rust but not the cheapest stuff around. I normally also use citric acid as it is cheap, super safe, and works very well but also someone recommended me oxalic acid(you c...

Re: XJ40 4.0 re-birth.

Very professional looking boot infill panels there, Gary. We expect no less from you :) . But how did you make the little clips that hold them in place... weld them onto the metal surrounding the holes? Hi Aidan, Thank you, the clips are automotive cable run clips that are a sort of a flat S shape ...

Re: Rear subframe removal, step by step guide.

Hi Craig, By No means a step by step guide, but Katar83 replyed in one of my posts about putting off removing the rear axel assembly as it looks a lot more complicated than it actually is, his explanation makes a lot of sense if your handy with the spanners. This is it below...... Regarding the fram...

Re: XJ40 4.0 re-birth.

No more sausages, bacon and fatty meals for you then? I'm addicted to bacon so not sure how would I live without gallbladder and a little pork every now and then :lol: Regarding the frame, its really easy to remove it, as far as the big bushes come off their mount(mine did) and the bolt next to the...

Re: XJ40 4.0 re-birth.

Another milestone reached today, With the exception of the boot light not working which still has me scratching my head, all other electrics are fully functioning as they should including all interior lights. Bulb failure light is now out on the dash. :D My attention will now turn to the underneath...
