Re: E type full build

Bryan, if you do get into using imgur it will automatically resize photos, if that helps and your son can help you either set up an account there or use the advice Steve (mgcjag) gave.
Ask away with questions, this is the best place for friendly advice and help for all things E Type

Re: E type full build

Hello Phoenix, do you have a name instead of just a username? Why not add it to your signature area as well as the car version. It’ll help people address you in a friendly way and know just which car you’re needing help for in future postings. I use imgur to host photos online then use the link in t...

Re: Car Ariel

Harvey, if you plan to listen to DAB you won’t get good reception with an old fashioned aerial even with a so called booster. You could look at dabonwheels but you won’t find the pull up aerial type.

Re: Britax ignition lock switch assembly questions

Roy, I had a similar problem for my project S2 and have an XJ6 switch attached to the steering lock. Not fitted or wired in yet but by a series of tests to check which wires are live in each position I made up a matrix diagram of connections. Don’t know how similar the switches are but it could be y...

Re: re enamelling exhaust manifolds

Jenks was known to say that any car with enamel still on the manifold reflected a driver who wasn’t driving the car positively enough. This from a man who regarded 4000 as a good cruise RPM and who regularly took them up to and over 5000 :bigrin:

Re: Quarterlight seal

Andy, the fitment of BD27268 and shims can affect the closing. Mine had one fitted the wrong way. Like many of these things lots of fettling to get a satisfactory fit.
