They definitely look more sporty.
Considering the original XJR had Quads, I don’t know why they changed them.

If you ever need to get the tanks done though, for another car, here’s a place that offer the service, in Kent too.

Blimey, and another year rolls by.
Well, it’s nearly time to get this out of storage soon, as the RJ XJR MANUAL day approaches in August. It’s invite only don’t you know.? ;) will it be the first chance to get all three surviving 40R manuals together? Will Steve make it in time?

I have the rear shock top bushes to do, (then hopefully a clean MOT pass to follow) that’s been on the list forever. Hopefully an update on the next week or so.

She’s out of the garage to run the engine up and get a few requested pics (for the certificates).

Oddly the battery seems to go flat even though the negative lead is disconnected.
I have a trickle charger to go on there now. Well it has been there for two months, and I only just remembered to fit it.

The tick over settled after about 30 seconds. All dash lights go out.
Passed the Pre MOT checks all except the screen washers have decided to stop working. Suspect relay....

MOT to get booked for the second week in August. Not cutting it too fine :?

As suspected just a simple poor contact on the relay.
Simple fix,( I just did have time!).

Just two small drips of PS fluid on the left side of the steering rack. Wiped away and no more have come through in 20 mins running. Hopefully that won’t turn into something....

Why does it take so long to do all these details?
I can finally leave the battery connected.

I forget just how interesting this car is, Naki. Really great to see it being stored and monitored and actually enjoyed! The colour combination is really mean looking, the 40 really suits a dark colour with its angular face and sleek lines, just looks like it takes no nonsense.

Look forward to the pictures of your exclusive event! Only 3 left? Makes it even more important to keep them in check!
