Re: XJ40 4.0 re-birth.

Good work. Anything that can be done to improve cosmetics is usually well worth it. There’s a good reasons these are many people’d Pride and joy.

Re: XJ40 4.0 re-birth.

The exhaust system is an area that needs a little work before I get it on the road, its mostly very serviceable with the exception of the centre boxes, the future plan is to replace it with a stainless steel system but that's an expense that can wait until its on the road. For now I need to get the ...

Re: XJ40 4.0 re-birth.

Very professional work there Gary. I doubt most professional bodyshops would even do that much prep. Nice idea for the cup holder. I assume you aren’t drinking the unleaded though! Well, I think that I'm doing it right based on what I have read up, I'm not a bodywork expert just trying to do the be...

Re: XJ40 4.0 re-birth.

This morning managed to get some time in and do some more prep work on the rear arch, i think that I'm almost there and started the wet sanding process as i think I'm just about at the point where the final finessing is in sight. https://xj40.rvdz.me/images/60760/60760___5cd7396a610f3.JPG Fuel fille...

Re: XJ40 4.0 re-birth.

Been in the garage tonight to carry on with the repair panel preparation but while i was at it i had a go at refreshing the quarter light window surround as the black had faded and the edge along where it meets the door frame had lost it edge over the years and every time i looked at it, it always a...
