True enough, very true. In fact the "real" thing cannot be beaten, only imitated ... In my opinion. ;)

Well done Naki,

I saw one of those boot liners for sale a couple of years ago and haven’t seen one since. I have a set of the rubber interior mats.

I love all the period accessories. I recently bought a Hella warning lamp as featured in the 93 accessory catalogue, but I’m not sure where Jaguar recommended this should be installed in the boot. There were a couple going around on eBay with installation instructions, so if anyone can help, please let me know.

Plus adding the boot remote release for a 94 model. The original switches are rare I think, but it seems the X300 version can be utilised.

The Tool kit is Slimmed down version of the normal one? Is the screw driver correct though? Looks to be a generic item? It fits though at least.
The screw driver in the normal tool kit is Jaguar Branded with a red or black handle.

I have the rubber footwell over mats too, though I only use them in winter if it’s wet (if the car goes out in the wet).

the screwdriver is correct to the kit, but i do know what you mean about the red and black versions,

RJ has only ever known about 3 ( i think its three ) of these particular kits, and we cant discover which model they came with , but they are 1993 or 1994 items


personally , i would call an ' accessory ' as an item that goes ' with ' a car, not ' on the car ' , so fist aid kit is an accessory , but map reading lights, or blinds, etc, are not accessories, but would happily debate this , lol

Maybe someone is willing to let one go?


I have one that's not being used at the moment, if anyone interested wants to make an offer?

Most likely made for a specific territory, (not the U.K.). Hence why you do not see them here much.
Somewhere where small spanners and spark plug wrenches are outlawed?

Now, not so easy to stain?

I have looked out for one of these for years! Only just got hold of this now.
You have to unclip the tool box elastic though when fitting it. But there is space for the toolkit still.


This looks like a tough vac-form moulding - would that be right Naki?

If so, I use a chap for moulding some boat parts - i will show him these photos and get his view on how we might make some copies.

I have an idea that I can use some moulding latex - coat a releasing agent on the bottom and maybe 6 inches up the sides. Once cured, remove latex from master and cast a hard impression of the bottom of the tray. Add this to a wooden frame the same size as the inside of the tray and, voila, a tool for vac-forming new trays!!

I will see what he says..................

Too big to 3D print then (yet).

You could have a burgeoning business idea here reproducing all these parts.
