Ah yes, I remember now ... H203 BNB, Blue XJ-S and yes it needed a radiator, amongst lots of "other" things. I wondered how on earth I was going to change that, single handedly ........ :o

Ah that other one ... Hmmm, Jaguar Classic it would seem may offer a "warranty" service then ? As far as I can remember the radiator was fine and dandy. The support frame on the other hand, was not quite so ... Maybe the two are connected :?:

I believe there must have been some kind of Warranty.
I chatted with the new owner at Wroxall, and pointed out to him that his power steering fluid was mixing with his coolant. So it’s gone back to get the Rad replaced with a new one. Though it will be a 94MY version rather than a 93 i expect? Unless Jaguar will make a new one off in 93 dice just for him? Apparently they can do that, though it’s not advertised.

I must say it all sounds very "top drawer" stuff to me, most impressive. I'm pretty sure with the facilities at this particular workshop they could create just about anything they wanted (In fact do, Lightweight "E" Types for instance ?) ... I wonder how many Manufacturers are keeping a sideways interest of things going on there :?: Just imagine what could be brought (back) to life from a Workshop dedicated to marques from the past by Manufacturers such as Ford or Mercedes to name a couple :?:
