Re: Moss Jaguar - Restoration work

It will be at Bicester, will also try to post picture of rear end treatment (lights, number plate etc). It looks fantastic, Angus and his crew have done a fantastic job. I'd be very interested in more pics of the rear light set up. Simon. http://i1076.photobucket.com/albums/w443/ernestdavidernest/b...

Re: Radio aerial

Hi I have just gone through the same research. I chose Pioneer TSG17321 6.5" (17cms) 2 way speakers for the centre consol. I have a relatively modern radio that has bluetooth connectivity, so can stream music from phone onto those speakers. However as I am going to be using the car for long journeys...

Re: Radio Aerial for a 1961 OTS

You can get replacement windscreens that have the aerial elements built in (and also heated windscreens), see the thread re Pilkington...I know that Angus will be fitting them, but you can get them separately I believe.
