Re: 1994 Daimler Double Six

Looks pretty good to me from those pictures.

I hope the suspension and air-con isn't shot like mine.

Good to see another DD6 gracing this forum :D

Re: Daimler Double Six - 1993 - J6DXJ

I bought a cheap set of A/C gauges, so I can see what is going on with my A/C There was no pressure in the system - but I kinda knew that. I used the gauge manifold to inject about 50psi into the system https://xj40.rvdz.me/images/60921/60921___5b098561d3bda.jpg The system holds air, not sure if it ...

Re: Daimler Double Six - 1993 - J6DXJ

Accelerator grommets and intake rubbers are new ones on me - any details would be gratefully received ;) The front suspension rebuild was done by a different garage, to the rear subframe bushes. The garage that did the rear subframe bushes, was linked to the storage facility I used to store the car....

Nope - still can't get it back in.
Think I'm going to have to make up a couple a little of longer hinges !!

Truly bizarre !!

Re: eBay motor bin.

Has anyone seen the Rose Quartz Sovereign on eBay? Very unusual colour, I don’t think I’ve seen one in that colour before. I had to go looking for that - it was quite something https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Jaguar-3-2-Sovereign-XJ40-53000-miles-from-New/142797572361?hash=item213f660909:g:~r8AAOSwtXta~...

Sun roof switch panel - can get it back in !!

I took the panel off, above the rear view mirror. The one containing the interior lights and the sunroof switch. I was just making sure I had the emergency handle for the sunroof - which I do. But I can get it back on. It sits about 5-8mm too far forward, so I can't line up the quarter turn fastener...

Re: 93 XJ12 Sold for 64k

Though I think any 40 achieving this sort of price can only be a good thing for the model as a whole. Very true 8-) If this one goes for anything like the £22.5K asking price - that would be good too. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Jaguar-XJ-XJ8-XJR-XJ12-6-0-V12-Morroco-Red-Full-Jaguar-Specialist-Hist-...

Re: Daimler Double Six - 1993 - J6DXJ

Me and the local Jag specialist have been making some good progress on the Daimler. Front suspension was never going to be cheap or easy. Full polybush kit, with genuine Jaguar bushes for the fat 6.0 anti-roll bar bushes, along with Boge front shocks. Once the garage dug into the front suspension, p...

Re: Detailing a luxury car interior

I reckon it was this one



I've just watched it, and it is worth 20mins of your time.

I'd like to know exactly what products he used, his website has an online store, but it doesn't seem to be working
