Re: New member - hopefully.

Another year. Another MOT passed. Celebratory photo! 2019-07-14_10-34-02_143.jpg She’s looking as fine as ever. I still chuckle that you thought you would only have one 40. Yes, I didn't believe it either. I thought surely one of these is enough for anyone! I put it down to the fact that this one t...

Re: 16th June - Senlac Classic Car Show, Bodiam East Sussex

Finally got round to a pic from the show now that we have pic hosting. Unfortunately, the weather didn't help - so the turn out wasn't great. However, it was good to see Chris again, talk some cars, and eat cake and burgers. 2019-06-16_13-15-45_135.jpg Thanks to the rain, photo opportunities were ke...

Re: 16th June - Senlac Classic Car Show, Bodiam East Sussex

Yes, but only sent off the application form yesterday! No matter, even if the paperwork doesnt come through in time I'll be there anyway. Just the XJ12 though. Which until 2 days ago was refusing to start.... If your paperwork doesn't turn up Chris, you can have my second pass if you like! The Daim...

Re: Suspension rebuild/upgrade questions

I'll be able to give some input very soon (hopefully). My Daimler has GAZ adjustables all round, but I'm currently rebuilding the lot. Including having the dampers rebuilt by GAZ. Bushes are being upgraded to poly and new springs, spacers etc. The only polybushes I could get for the rear through we...

Re: Suspension rebuild/upgrade questions

I was lucky enough to pickup a complete set off of eBay. They were not in great shape, but they went into the car anyway as the existing suspension was absolutely shot. They have since gone back to GAZ for a rebuild, and come back completely rebuilt and ready to go again. Just waiting to put them ba...

Re: 16th June - Senlac Classic Car Show, Bodiam East Sussex

Hi Chris.
I'm going to book both in, but not sure if I'll be able to bring the Daimler.
It's looking a bit sorry for itself at the moment. Lots of leaks, suspension and cooling woes at the moment. Still putting it back together.
Jag will hopefully be there though!
