92 Black Cherry XJR Manual

Postby naki_k » Fri Dec 28, 2012 1:11 pm

i thought i would start a new thread for this now, as i know it will turn into one of my usual resto threads!

sorry for the delay. here are the long awaited pix, with customary water droplets all over. the car is tucked away under the carport now (3.2s now relegated to outside under cover), so will start drying out all the wet carpets and boot :roll:

started a bit fo tidying/ replacing worn parts, with the easy stuff.

changed the manual ski slope for one in better condition, from my stash. and i still have another spare for my conversion (if and when). the gator had some holes in it too, so changed for better one.

Excellent “wet T shirt” photos as usual Naki, she is looking good and will look even better when you have given her a once over. Interior is awesome, very Costa del Crime, and the red stitching finishes it quite nicely
It would seem that our Naki has lost his heart to a cherry and not lost his cherry to a...........

also, am guessing my front door speakers are aftermarket, as they looks a little odd? and one has a missing cover.
will prob try and change them back to OE down the line

What do you expect from me, Wet T shirt pictures on top of just been handling the Au Pair's pair. It is just way too much for one day. Talking about Costa del Crime, have you checked the boot. :o

I'm simply jealous, even with the "Check Engine" light. Love that Red and Black interior... Very... Sporty ?

Weird front bumper as if it could have 2 fog lamp on each side.

Nice car.

They are probably additional air scoops for the brakes eh? Naki.

Have just been looking at the photos again, your area of Devon looks idyllic, BLOODY WET, but idyllic all the same.
In your estimation, how must more storage area (in 40s per sqr meter) do you still have left?
You are seriously rivalling Jenner Towers as it is.

check engine light is on, as the engine is not running, but ignition on.

the only crime in the boot, is the amount of water that was in there!
