It was a bit tight! I had broken one rule and started to do some work on a car in our 'stables', so the yellow MR2 and the XJC had to be squeezed in somewhere and that's where they ended up! 'House rules' for us are two cars in the workshop at any given time, but in theory that rule applies only to cars being worked on so my argument was I bent that rule, not broke it like the other one
When working on projects I tend only to take photos of unusual parts of builds, or modifications like fitting the Defender clutch return spring to the Jaguar pedal box and the custom instrument cluster. I'll try to do better now I am on this forum so other people get a better idea of how I do some things.
Now the weather is warming up a bit I will turn my mind to a thread for the valve body rebuild for Bast. After doing some research I have discovered what is causing Bast's transmission to throw a transmission light once her transmission is hot. Interestingly enough I found another thread on here from a couple of years back with the same 'mystery fault' on another XJ81, so there will likely be others come up over time. I have also bought a shift correction kit (sometimes referred to as a 'stage 1' kit) for Bast's transmission and will fit that as well since it can be done with the transmission in the car and will increase transmission clutch life. I'll have to psych myself up a bit to do this one, mostly because I hate working under cars no matter what and a lot of this will be under the car - oh well.
