Re: Merry Christmas

A very Merry Christmas to everyone, and thanks once again to David, Steve and Angus among others for their work and everyone for their continued interesting and (mostly) insightful discussion! :bigrin: :lol:

Re: New member

Hi Harry Welcome to the forum - I’ve seen your work on various Facebook groups, and it’s always been very impressive. Nice to hear from a fellow Derbyshireman too - when I’m not doing my PhD, I’m straight back home to my favourite place, I love Derbyshire. Keep an eye out for Derbyshire events as my...

Re: 2019 NEC Classic car show - my Etype

Richard and I visited on Sunday and had a great day. A perfect excuse to visit a nearby Chinese buffet restaurant I knew from my days in Brum also :wink: Some photos from the day - as ever a good mix of all sorts on display. Saw your E-type Chris - it looked lovely. https://i.imgur.com/jHXi2iS.jpg T...

Re: Newspaper report E type in crash

I saw this and was asked about it, given the E-type featuring and the fact that the incident was around a mile from home. I haven't seen or heard any details about the parties involved either, although the convoy of police cars and ambulances came speeding through our village when were were outside ...

Re: Windscreen scratches

Just to bring this one to a close - I had a new windscreen fitted last Thursday. Quite an interesting process to see, and I'm delighted with the results, and excellent value for money. Superb optical quality, no smears or anything of the sort to worry about. Brand new screen had glass polish then Ra...

Re: Windscreen scratches

Thanks for the responses, gents. I have had a ring round a few places for some quotes for new windscreens + fitting and the quotes weren't half as past as I was dreading them to be. My car is actually only insured 3rd party fire and theft, so no windscreen cover, although the excess would be most of...

Re: Windscreen scratches

Not as far as I am aware, Christopher. Certainly over the past 4 or so years that I’ve known about the car, it hasn’t been exposed to those environments. I think I will get the opinion of autoglass or someone similar It does seem a little strange admittedly. Can’t remember it being a problem last ye...

Windscreen scratches

OK, this on is my "daily driver" (as opposed to anything else I have the occasional access to! :lol: ) but I'll probably get away with it. The windscreen on my car is showing plenty of age-related marks, particularly noticeable are scratches following the arc of the driver's side wiper. Polarised le...

Re: New member in Lancashire

Hi Kenny It may be worth dropping Paul Brown (of Paul Brown Classic Jaguar, Ripley, Derbyshire) a line if you're on the hunt for cars. He occasionally helps to sell cars on behalf of his customers. For example, I'm sure he has a V12 OTS for sale at present (which needs a little work but is a good us...

Using the FHC

Richard sent me this picture which made me chuckle.

Squeezing the engine frames from his light aircraft in the back of the FHC - they've been off for welding and painting.

Couldn't do that with an OTS! :lol:

Re: Breakfast Meeting - Sunday 1st September

A few photos from last Sunday's event Once again we had a fabulous turnout for breakfast - 20 E-types and the lovely XJS invading an otherwise peaceful Derbyshire village. Difficult to get them all in the same shot, but we did have 20 at one point! We had a lovely mix colours and series again as wel...

Re: Local fete.

Some interesting points Stu, and I’m merely promoting discussion. Richard’s 3.8 - despite being as original as reasonably possible, is not without its modifications. New style repro radiator, 5 speed gearbox, Fosseway braking system, the list goes on. Similarly, John Darvell’s (V12 Epyte) has a stun...

Surely I'm not the only one wondering about the unregistered S1 with a variety of "obvious" errors - did they keep the bonnet down throughout the show? :scratchheadyellow:

Re: V12 Engine man

If other avenues fail, I could recommend having a word with Paul Brown (of Paul Brown Classic Jaguar) - he knows E-types inside out and always seems to have a few V12s on the go. The only thing is that he's not particularly local as he's in Ripley, Derbyshire. I have his mobile number which I can se...

I did get one more shot of the OTS - it was on the E-Type Club Weekend way back in 2015 now. It does seem to have something about it!

Re: Colour

Paint codes aside Bob, it looks particularly nice with the dark blue hood - you don't see many coloured hoods out and about. I once saw a gunmetal OTS with an oxblood interior and dark red hood. Wow!
