Re: Daimler Double Six - 1993 - J6DXJ

My subframe brackets turned up, and look more than a little smarter than the ones I took off. The replacements seem to have drainage holes in them, maybe Jaguar addressed the issue for the X308's ?? https://rs.rvdz.me/xj40/images/60921/60921___5af2c5f3ba643.jpg As Naki said the rust history on the M...

Re: Dodgy work done by Classic Car Garage

I was back under the car tonight

I still can't find any new bolts.

I certainly would expect replacement bolts to be new and not 2nd hand

Re: Dodgy work done by Classic Car Garage

Two bolts just next to the bushes(you can see one in your pic) took me 2-3 hours to get out on my own car, one snapped too. They were one of the worst bolts to remove on the whole car. Ah that is interesting - I didn't see those when I was replacing the brackets - maybe it was those the garage were...

Dodgy work done by Classic Car Garage

First proper job I've farmed out to a Classic Car garage, and I don't believe it has gone to plan. I tasked the garage to replace the rear subframe bushes. I got a lot of stories from the garage .....the bolts are seized, hope we can get them out .....after a big fight and a lot of time, we've got t...

Re: Daimler Double Six - 1993 - J6DXJ

Thanks Naki I'm okay for subframe brackets - a pair is winging its way to me. I've got some rust issues still to sort out underneath I know. MOTs are far too subjective on older cars to have too much merit IMHO. But I will bring the old girl back up to par. The boot seems to be dry at the moment - m...

Re: Daimler Double Six - 1993 - J6DXJ

Car has been in storage for a little while. But I picked it up last night, and I've got updates :D But I've been busy getting rvdz's wheels refurbished, and fresh tyres. Very happy with that for a look, especially as it has just come off the jack, and the suspension will settle a little. https://rs....

Re: Bulkheads- what’s the current consensus?

I think new owners of XJ40's are going to have to face some decisions. 1. Pay best part of £10K to an enthusiast or respected dealer for a mint car, and hope it is as described 2. Pay £2-£5K for a car that looks good, but keeping some skill/cash back for the necessary fixes 3. Go all around the coun...

Re: Daimler Double Six - 1993 - J6DXJ

My car is in store at the moment, so I'll have to wait and see what I need, what I get sent, and then come up with a plan of action.

Watch this space :)
