Re: Wiper parking adjuster

Best thing I have found for feeding wiring, tubing etc is wire curtain rod, because it is flexible, you are able to feed it just about anywhere you wish, just tape whatever your using to the wire and away you go! Put a small 2"-ish kink at the end so if it hits an obstruction, you can twist the wire...

Re: External door handles?

Hi Steve, Yes I came across that thread when I did a search, hence my confusion re: S1, S1.25 & S1.5, so far it has been confirmed by two sources as being a sepaerate lock, so we'll see what turns up in the boxes of bits! Luckily, SteveJaguar is only a short distance away from us with the same model...

Re: S1 Seats

Quick update on the seats. Converted the 2nd passenger seat into a drivers seat, sewn in new panels on the base and had a very quick wipe over with restorer, re-newed the back of the backrests to match and very pleased how they look now. The side chrome or should I say rusty seat hinges will soon be...

External door handles?

Couple of questions Re Door handle/locks. I have done a search and turned up some info, however, still a bit confused with the mention of S1.25 & S1.5 so: Car is a S1 4.2 2+2 first registered July 66. New doors were purchased, but I am assured they are the same as the originals having only cut outs ...

Re: Sunroof

Yep, it's an early Golde roof, if memory serves me, they were later fitted into FORD motor cars as a factory fit, first one I can remember working on was a MK1 Granada estate, yours looks like the manual type but the later type were operated by a winding handle (Wire cabled) at the front near to the...

Re: Refubrishing series I seats

We are just in the process of doing just this, and so far no problems. When I get a chance, I will put a photo or two up but as lockdown is back, I'll not be seeing the seats for a while.

Re: Sunroof

I used to fit sunroofs for many years from mid 70's to mid 80's. Your roof looks very similar to the Hollandia sunroofs that I used to fit (But earlier), however, they were held into the roof by clamping a metal jig inside and ontop of the appeture then hmmering about a half inch down then using a h...

Replacement front screen

Can anyone recommend a supplier for an S1 2+2 front windscreen that is a good fit? I did a search and it brought up an old thread where there were a few problems fitting, so wondered if anyone had any recent experience with a reliable supplier. Car has the original fitted currently but has delaminat...

I'd settle for a Mini skirted, 60's style leggy brunette dolly bird! The ideal optional extra for an E-Type.

Re: S1 Seats

We have come up with a solution for the seat base cover, and also to match the rear of the backrests to match the original spec, so they should be done by January, only thing holding us back is, it's bloody cold in his garage! Also been digging around in my garage and found loads of AF/UNF nuts, bol...

Re: Cracks in the sills at the door corners.

I was brought up to use only aluminium reinforced body filler on metal panels/parts as it is more flexible, less absorbent and gives a metalic finish when correctly wet & dry rubbed (Technical term we used was 'knocked down') and dries/sets harder than polyester filler, it is more expensive but so m...

Well we managed to get hold of another passenger seat complete with the frame. bit rough but we should be able to sort it and get it into the drivers side without much hassle, still looking for an age related drivers seat base cover or even a piece of any make/model material that I could cut and sew...
