Re: Cleaning wheels

To dry the wheels after spraying them with cleaner and rinsing with water, I have followed the recommendation of a fellow forum member and use a leaf blower. Works great!

Re: Underdash harduras

Hi Mich, me again. Looking at the John Skinner Website and pictures, they show exactly your underdash hardura pattern. https://www.john-skinner.co.uk/jaguar/e-type-fixed-head-coupe-fhc-series-1-3-8ltr/#trim For the 2+2 it looks different and a RHD has the cutout for the accelerator pedal on the lowe...

Re: Underdash harduras

I have a similar Hardura panel left over, because a very large 4 way flasher switch is installed on the left side of the steering column on mine. It does look a bit different, though and I got it from Aldridge. The straight edge needs to go to the outboard side of a L/H drive S1. https://i.postimg.c...

Re: Is the end near?

a couple of months ago, an AUDI A3 pulled up at a red light in the lane next to me and the young driver asked me, if my car is an F-Type, or an E-Type :?: . So it may be more a general thing; cars are not so important any more - the F-Type was surely younger than him.

Re: Is ethanol free fuel still available?

Hi Marek, Just gone through this investigation process last week. My investigation showed that the only one that could say that it was 100% entanol free was Esso Supreme 97 RON. I was putting Shell V Power in my E Etype, but have recently found that it can contain up to 5% ethanol. Kind regards Mik...

Re: Re-chroming side and tail lights

Hi Christopher & all, the name MAZAK is unfamiliar to me. You probably mean ZAMAK or ZAMAC (zinc, aluminium, magnesium and copper) for die casting. Prototype stamping dies are are also made from this alloy. BTW the chrome on my taillights is fine, the reflectors behind the bulbs could use some treat...

Re: Correct rear door hinge covers?

without looking at the parts book for a 4.2 (mine is a 3.8), it refers to PVC for the decorative material only. The covers themselves are made of steel - they need to be, because I had to pull and stretch the top material quite a bit to get it applied without wrinkles.

Re: Tyres

Hi Don & David, I just had to make this tyre decision myself, but opted for the Michelin XVS 185/80R15V on 5" rims because I like the pizza cutter appearance (I had Yokohama 205/70R15 on 6" before). I was told by two independent sources (my tyre dealer and my restorer), that the Michelins age slower...

Re: Boot Board Hinges

your three hinges should be BD20131
Fitted from Chassis No.
860581 to 861098. 886093 to 888301.

The later hinge is BD24400
Fitted to Chassis No.
861099 and subs. 888302 and subs.

BTW BD23142 is for the hinged panel striker and not a hinge.

Hope this helps,

Re: Trim question...

Just notice, that this is an "ancient" posting, but I post my question anyway...

Hi Chris,
but isn't this what you describe Hardura? Hardura is an embossed PVC coated fibre mat. What is on the back side of the material that you have found? My '63 was supplied by Aldrige with an Hardura mat.

Re: Help with rear boot trim

Hello Chris,

your trimmer is probably referring to this extruded trim piece.

I don't think that it's available in red :sad:
