Re: Door Drain Hole Shroud

Simon Yes, you are right: I also like pragmatism. If you take a closer look at the shrouds, the first thing you can come to is that Jaguar‘s (British Leyland’s) penchant for saving money is the reason for the change in this part with the introduction of the Series 3, especially since two pop rivets ...

Re: Door Drain Hole Shroud

Hi Joe I have not found a supplier for the shrouds for series 3 (shrouds for series 1 and 2 -BD 20878- can be purchased from the usual suppliers). However, you can easily make them yourself; they have a simpler shape than the series 1 and 2, as you can see on the attached photos of the original seri...

How to fasten seat belt retainer

Dear all How to fasten the seat belt retainer (BD40747) to the seat, I assume BD35681 is rivet nut (?); are there standard drill holes in the seat back or do you have to drill them yourself, is there a template for the drill holes? Thanks Holger https://i.postimg.cc/sXTbsjFj/8-DDAD579-C61-A-4844-85-...

Re: Trying to locate BD38047 Seal retainer

George,
I‘d recommend refurbishing the old part (if still available): I had to experience that the repro seal retainers have a very bad fit.

Re: Original soundproofing material

I used Armaflex (www.armacell) closed cell foam sheets. This material is used for insulation in industry. 3 mm foam for door sills, 9 mm foam for replacement of original soundproofing sheets. I bought the material as 1 m wide plates from Amazon.

Re: Original soundproofing material

Hi, series 3 uses a foam material. There is a disadvantage with the original foam material: the foam consists of open cells, i.e. acting as a sponge when it becomes wet. A few weeks ago I was also faced with the decision to use the original foam material (as a kit) or to deviate from the original an...

Re: SNGB Web Feedback

Dear Julian,
I appreciate the new version of SNGB homepage; it works well with both Windows 10 (Firefox) and iOS 13 (Safari). However, the German version still contains numbers of translation errors. I for myself prefer the English version because the German SNGB web confuses me.

Re: „Wish price days“

Dear all,
I failed several times with the windscreens of this German supplier due to horrible fitting; by the way: their windscreens are from a Chinese source.

Re: Bonnet catch

just to add: I am not sure if the shape of my bonnet safety catch is original, however without its bent shape it would not match with the catch bracket.

Re: Bonnet catch

Bernie, the bonnet safety catch did not change during the production of the E type. You may have a repro part installed; the original part has two holes in the latching arm.

Re: series 3 vs Series 1

interesting discussion...from an aesthetic point of view I would prefer a combination of series 3 and series 1: the series 3 OTS body, but with the short wheelbase of series 1. The wheelbase and the doors of series 3 are simply much too long. But this is just my personal opinion. Nevertheless, I hav...

unidentified electronic object

In my E Type there was an old alarm system from the nineties, which I removed. Unfortunately I had to find out the following: the wiring harness is a pure tinkering orgy. At the moment I‘m busy to get rid of the mess and restore the wiring harness to its original condition. At the contact switch of ...
