Re: Winter layup advise

As the fuel will evaporate during lay-ups, don't forget to let the carbs fill with petrol BEFORE cranking the engine. Another tip is to over-inflate the tyres to help prevent flat-spots if left for a long period.

Re: Built by Many

please share your tips below
Take as many digital pictures as you can before item removal and strip down, these will become invaluable
as time passes and your memory fades!
Never throw away the old part until it has been "compared" to the replacement item. :fingerscrossed:

Re: Built by Many

Should a 1968 have closed headlamps? It has the S1 side/lights etc, yet Looks like a S1.5 with rocker switches, and S2 ribbed cam covers car not listed on XKE data. They have set themselves a challenge selecting this model, will be interesting to see how "correct" they intend to make it. Always good...

The car has their wedding date as a personal number plate, does this mean Harry gets to keep this car?

After reading some have used Admiral, I decided to have a look but noticed this on their website...

Re: Series 1 2+2 values

Bonnet is a series 1
should it not have faired in headlamps then? I see the car has toggle switches so its not a S1.5 ?
is the chrome trim around the headlights a left-hand drive thing?

Re: Another one bites the dust

Surely that's a good thing Chris, it keeps new blood coming in, and gives others the chance to try E type ownership. Before prices went mad, cars would have changed hands much more frequently giving others a chance to own the car of their dreams.

Re: stolen

Mine has to be in the garage if within a mile of my address over night. Mine would not have been covered. That's because when you took out your insurance, you stated that your car is kept in a garage overnight. Because the stolen car was kept in storage, I assume the owner does not have a garage at...
