Obviously the real reason he sold it :lol:

Then of course any other work he'd done you were not aware of ,

The front view from this height is quite aggressive.

I love the bonnet line from this angle.

I'd check out the Vee mounts too, normally a giveaway for tramlining in my opinion!

JAG89's now had all the front bushes done.

To try them out we went for an outing with some friends to an old homestead in Takapau. About an hours drive from here.
Was still tramlining so I ordered some new tyres which were fitted today. Bridgestone Potenza RE002's.
Just a 10 mile drive home on them, but seems to be a big improvement. I'll have to give them a good run in this weekend.

Here's JAG89 with a Soverfriend.

common cause of tram-lining on these cars.

Yup, still the wheels JAG89 came with. I've only found 1 set of the original wheels down here, and they were on a dealer provided replica. The owner wanted $2500 for the set. I don't want them that bad.

The vee mounts were replaced last week. I suspect the tyres may have been a major contributor. They came with the car and may have been a bit out of shape.

Wildberry's garaged at the mo. I'm putting my funds into JAG89 first. Having said that, I've just received a pair of front fog lights from Jaguar Classic parts. Now I need to get the wheels refurbished and a new set of tyres. Lucky I've got a good tyre guy.
