Re: Looking at a Series 1 LHD car - Car Number

The car does appear to be a Series 1 but as people point out its a bit of a Bitzer, bits of this and bits of that. A total restoration is required and this will cost you around £100,000 to a high standard unless you are doing the work yourself. This could increase if you require extensive floor work...

Re: 2+2 rear seat

Just resurrecting this thread as I think my rear seat hinges for my 2+2 series 1966 are lost. Looking at SNG they list a replacement for Series 3 but nothing for series 1 or 2. Does anyone know if the seat top half remained the same in terms of structure and hence the hinges would have the same dime...

They call it Jaguar Hatch Finisher and Manners call it rear door finisher. Manners also sell it in Black for £33.60 including VAT. Thanks all for pointing me in the right di...

Re: Help with rear boot trim

If BAS, Aldridge, Skinner’s and seemingly everyone but Lakeland do not seem to sell this profile what do trimmers normally do?

Would this profile have been interior colour?

Do they just use a flap of vinyl from the aluminium panel below?

Thanks

Help with rear boot trim

Hi, I have a series 1 2+2 1966 and it is currently being trimmed. The trimmer tells me there should be a piece of trim that goes between the boot openings rubber (lower part) and the trimmed piece of aluminium that goes vertically below the boot opening. He thinks its mouldable plastic that you appl...

Re: Covered headlamps - water tightness

Did you slot the surrounds or cut the bead.

Looks spot on.

Re: Covered headlamps - water tightness

I would also like to know an answer to the Authors main question. Does the bonnet chrome pipe go under the eyebrow chrome or butt up. We have been fitting the surrounds and the bead kicks them up considerably. One solution we contemplated was filing a semi circle in the surround to accept the bead. ...

Re: Vacuum pipe hose clips

Once again thank you for your help. For my benefit and for anyone finding this thread later. On the Vacuum side I count 16 of the C15886/5. Barratts quote this throughout the following drawing. https://s22.postimg.cc/4x71s7sg1/vacuum.png On the hydraulic side I count four clips and Barratts quote C4...

Re: Vacuum pipe hose clips

For the record.

Richard Smith has the clips for £4.00 + VAT but he could not tell me about the dimensions of the hoses in the Vacuum system so any help here would be appreciated.

Of course I could leave the purchase of the clips until I have all the hoses which could be the best idea.

Thanks

Re: Vacuum pipe hose clips

Thanks;

Just reading in Factory Fit: viewtopic.php?t=2006&start=10

That the 5/8 clip will not fit the other hoses so only 4 can be used. Does anyone have experience of this?

Thanks

Vacuum pipe hose clips

I want to use the correct hose clips for the Vacuum pipes and I believe there are 22 of them in total. The price of part: C15886/5 at between £5 and £7 each from the usual suppliers seems crazy high. Would anyone have a source for the correct hose clips. I know Robeys do theirs at 65p each but they ...

Re: Series 1 2+2 values

I am going through a restoration on a Series 1 2+2 at the moment. As a consequence I have taken a real interest in prices over the last 2.5 years. There have been quite a few LHD automatic cars around in the last 2.5 years and all of these in driver condition and ranging from £25,000 for one needing...

Hi, My series 1 1966 2+2 was an auto but we have changed the complete tunnel to manual and I have a new radio console from Robey. With no reference to the fixings from my car I need some help please. There seems to be a mix of fittings including a domed nut (cam cover nut) a knurled nut and a chrome...

Re: Radio Console Outer Panels Series 1 4.2 1966

Fantastic information I will get the panels ordered up.

I might make the gaskets as I guess they are just to stop vibration how hard can that be.

Sounds like you agree there is an outside panel which appears to be held by a standard Cam Cover style nut at the back.

Radio Console Outer Panels Series 1 4.2 1966

Hi, I am putting together the radio console for a 1966 series 1. Mine has gone from auto to manual so after replacing the tunnel I am having to source all the correct parts. The SNG Barratt drawing of the console matches what I bought from Robey. However I note that some of the best restored cars I ...
