Re: Sherwood green on the E type

They just replied me that they are unable to provide the exact paint code on such a limited edition.
A pity.

Re: Sherwood green on the E type

I received today an email from Jaguar classic, with some paint codes as per the below. However, is still unclear to me if the codes relate to those of the picture in the 60 anniversary.

Colour Sherwood Green
Year Range 1957-68
Old RM # JA028
New RM # 7417
Glasurit # JAG-605

Re: Sherwood green on the E type

I contacted Jaguar Land River Classic Works. They asked me to contact Morelli, a company that supplies most of the paint shops in UK including theirs. Probably is known to some of you. At Morelli, they tell me they can help me, but they require a colour code from me as there are around 7 variants of...

Sherwood green on the E type

Hi all, I saw few weeks ago the F Type heritage 60 Edition on this beautiful Sherwood green. Color looks pretty good imo, and quite different from the classic one. Anybody knows how does it look in real life? Same as in the picture? I am about to paint my S1 in gunmetal and am seriously thinking on ...

Best type of exterior mirrors

Hi,

Is there any better type of exterior mirrors to fit in a S1 in terms of visibility?

Is it better a “bullet” type on the bonnet over those clip ones on the windows?

Thanks a lot

Car documentation when Buying in US

Hi Can anybody please tell me what is the documentation that a US car needs to have when you buy in order to import in Europe? I am not familiar with the topic, and I have seen a document called Certificate of Title for a Vehicle, but I ignore if this suffices or any other document is mandatory. In ...

Is Opalescent dark grey a S1 color?

Hi

Is Opalescent dark grey a S1 color?

I have not been able to find it in xkedata or other sites, but this is according to the car dealer the name of the color I like.

Could this be another name for the gunmetal?

Thanks,

Safety belts

Hi I want to install safety belts in a S1 fhc. I assume there are belts with two or three “anchor points” (I ignore the proper english term for this). Has anybody any view (installation, fitting, looking, etc) on two versus three points, besides that a three points is probably much safer in case of ...

Re: About to sign for my first S1 FHC

Thanks for all wise comments / advises. Based on them, it is clear I need the car to be inspected by an independent classic car dealer with a mechanic. Seller still keeps the original bonnet which goes with the car. I think it is worth to do so, rather than taking a final conclusion based on a coupl...

Re: About to sign for my first S1 FHC

Thanks to both of you for your advices. Yes, I have had somebody knowledgeable looking into the car. This person, who took the picture told me door was not properly closed, but was presenting no issues . Regarding the bonnet, apparently this was replaced by a fiber one to improve handling. But here ...

Hi Lual.....having a S2 engine still does not make this a deal breaker.....there are many E types that dont have their original engine....some have xj6 or 420 units for example.....I would check that the registration documents V5 if a UK car has the correct engine number on it.....you should actual...

Re: Help before buying S1 2+2

Hi Lual, If you live in Spain and intend to drive the car in Spain, then why would you look at a RHD? This unless I missed some point. There are plenty of LHD ones available... Thanks, Well, there are not so many S 1, in good shape ready to enjoy, 2+2 given my size. But is true I may be missing som...
