Better car lighting have produced a complete PL headlight using LEDs I believe. It might be worth giving Gil a ring on 01789576102.
I confirmed i’ve made that upgrade with superb results

Re: New Reproduction Parts for E-Type's

I wonder what "better chance for the enamel to stay on" is in real world. Apart from that, I bought replacements for the manifolds from SGB three months ago and the aspect was superb (I don't know if they are or are not the new ones Julian is announcing now)

Re: no keys for door locks

Thank you Tim. Is this provider stamping the key with the Wilmot Breeden marks, as the originals?

Re: no keys for door locks

Hi. I've just tried to reach Pete Groh petegroh@aol.com, but it seems the email address is not working anymore. Does anyone have any idea about other address or suitable provider for Wilmot Breeden keys, not in the US? I'm looking for reproductions of the original Wilmot Breeden (UNION) keys, made t...

Re: Mysterious holes nearby the fuel pump

Just an fyi to prevent confusion in the future. That is the fuel sediment bowl not the fuel pump. If you develop a problem with fuel delivery you need to look for the fuel pump in the boot. Yes, apologies for the confusion. BTW, I've been surfing (again) the Factory Fit 3.8 section and I'm not find...

Mysterious holes nearby the fuel pump

I'm trying to identify what was missing nearby the fuel pump of my LHD FHC, October 62. I've marked one of the four or five holes I see nearby the fuel pump. Any ideas?

Correct in a 3.8?

Are these two pieces standard equipment on a 3.8 October 1962? Picture is from Jonathan Wood "Jaguar E type - The Complete History", and referred to the 3.8, but I haven't found them but in the 4.2.

Re: Refurbishing door handles/locks

One question related to keys. Does the Series 1 have two separate keys, one for the doors and the other for the ignition?

Re: Securing clip for luggage lid

Thank you. It is a pity there are no current providers for such a piece. As you suggest it is probably a matter of crafting something

Securing clip for luggage lid

I'm trying to find any providers of one of the securing clips for the luggage lid, which is badly damaged in my car. The piece is depicted in the attached picture. Any reference most welcomed! I haven't found replacements for this piece in any common Jag materials providers: https://i.postimg.cc/mDb...

FHC Luggage mat doubt

Is the piece circled in red standard in FHC Series 1 models (after the luggage mat was split in two)? I’ve seen in different models, mostly restored to make easier to raise the part of the mat where the wheel is located. I did not found the answer surfing the forums. https://i.postimg.cc/QtBhHyj3/B5...

I’ve found here a satisfactory result with SNGB after 2,500 miles; perfect running-in, mostly highway driving and no driving in the rain, thought: https://forums.jag-lovers.com/t/experie ... /377254/55

Re: re enamelling exhaust manifolds

I'm interested about practical experiences members have with SNGB exhaust manifolds reproduction. They indeed seem to be glossy and faithful to the originals, but how resistant they are on the long run?
