Re: Do not open windows....

I’ve only seen something resembling this as a joke sticker on a VW camper van.

Re: Front brake caliper thoughts

Another thumbs up for Classic Car Automotive, they made an excellent job of rebuilding my master cylinders with stainless sleeves.

Re: Where to buy a "Bonnet Hardware Kit"

For what it’s worth, the spacer washers I removed which looked original were the same as Andrew’s (Abowie) at 2.5mm hence re using these rather than the repro ones. Bonnet washers are one thing but I have to say with regard to the tolerances and material spec of safety critical items such as brakes,...

Re: Hardura Panels

Stephen, The Hardura panel in the pic above goes on the side of the footwell and wraps around A post where the bonnet release and hinge is. This is fixed to a sheet of milboard that is attached to the inside of the footwell and sill area to create a flat surface. Rory a member on here made these rem...

Re: Boot release will not open?

I’m not convinced it is the hinges David. There is enough flex in the boot lid , hinges, mountings that applying the force mentioned by the OP on the lock edge, the boot would come up further and something would bend. The hinge to boot mounts are quite flimsy. I might be wrong but if the boot is com...

Re: Hardura Panels

Hi Stephen, The back should be like the picture below and is quite absorbent and moults a lot. If you prime it first with brushable contact adhesive and let it absorb and go off completely it will give the next coat of contact adhesive (spray or brush) a much better surface to adhere to. If you deci...

Re: Hardura Panels

I found with all the Hardura panels it helped to prime them with a coat of adhesive to stabilise the backing that has a habit of moulting everywhere. You can then glue, Velcro or fix with magnets as you choose.

Re: Boot release will not open?

Reading that the boot opens a small amount, I’m inclined to think that as Ralph suggests, something is trapped in the mechanism. Ralph I did try a coat hanger type piece of wire first but found it wasn’t strong enough and bent rather than operate the lever. Another very good point Ralph mentions is ...

Re: Oil Filler Cap, Gap to Bonnet, and Improving Breathing ?

Hi Rory, Only a thought. What about the larger XJ6 S3 breather? Rather than keeping it black you could polish it. I might even have one I can post to you to experiment with. You could still fabricate some alloy tubing and polish it to replicate the look of the original but just a larger bore? Link t...

Re: Dash trim detail help please

Some pics that might help. I bottled trimming the dash panels and got Hutsons to do it for me and included the tabs. The tabs you see were glued to the back of the dash panel metal with the studs going through them. It shouldn’t be difficult to achieve the same effect by slackening the dash fixings ...

Hi Jeremy,

Yes black vinyl the same as the dash. I can post pics if you need but I think it’s self explanatory.
