That’s a sizeable bill I suppose, but probably normal for a car needing a restoration. I assume your bodywork and paint are ok? That’s usually where the big money can go.

Stick some pics up. The new pic uploader is working now.

It’s looks first rate.

Are the flashing blue lights allowed for fire duties?

That's a lovely looking Jag - you can never beat the original paint. I like the blue lights too!
