Light Tan

Hello everybody!

Does anyone know any source that can supply the correct carpet and moquette for a 1965 Light Tan interior? It seems impossible to find.

Re: Jaguar Sport V5C

You are correct Steve regarding the name of the car thats at least what was possible to register in uk in the old days. But this is not intended for uk so I thought a question wouldn’t harm

Jaguar Sport V5C

Hello everybody!

Probably a strange question but anyway. Does anyone have registration papers (V5C) for sale stating a Jaguar Sport registered Before 1966?

Re: What causes plugs like THIS??

Could it be some kind of additive in the fuel that has been mixed in totally wrong proportion? Or oil/water from the crankcase breather pipe?

Re: Knob for heated rear glass switch

If it’s of any help I have made a few for my C type project in brass because they are the same. I can make another one but you have to sort out the chrome yourself.

chrome beading

Hello everybody!

Does anyone know if it´s possible to find the chrome beading pipe that runs along the "Crash Roll" roof cantrail on a FHC? It´s a round tube with a slit exactly the same type as on the bonnet to wing beading but slightly smaller in diameter.
Part nr BD.24414

Re: Security stuff

There is a Product on Amazon that as far as I have seen should be easily installed without doing any moderations to the car. Would be very interesting if someone have some experience from this. Remote controlled main switch for the battery. https://www.amazon.com/WirthCo-20395-Preserver-Automatic-Di...

Re: Shock absorber colour

Hello!

When you paint old Girling shocks are these still usable? I mean from a driving point of view it seems strange that these still are up to the job.
Or is there a way to service/renovate them?

Hello Steve! I’m not an expert but the main diffrecenses is probably that the inlet cam don’t have the rew counter adapter thread at the end and that they are 4 bolted to the front sprockets compared to E-type 2 bolt.
