SESH, I'm not sure which is worse, running round naked or in white stilettos? :lol:

Glad they found a virgin somewhere so we can enjoy the sunshine another day.

Solar eclipse

Have you heard of the panic in Essex? (Or Norfolk, or as you wish!)
They think the solar eclipse is a warning from the gods of the end of the world.

Now they are desperately searching for a virgin to sacrifice :lol:

Thanks Simon. Looks necessary to ask the suppliers to check the boge shocks including the combined shocks/springs before they ship them

Do we have a final solution for the rear springs as I hope to order complete shock/spring sets in two or three weeks time and it would be nice to be certain about whether it's safe to order them? Seeing comments on another thread about badly made shocks are any supplied in reliable quality? Thanks G...

Experian and others do a vehicle check for about ?25, even the DVLA can provide information. Although the Jaguar Heritage certificate can not be issued I believe you can ask them for a bit of information that might be of help. Try to get someone knowledgeable to give the car a checkout, worth the co...

Graham, welcome to owning and driving an E Type. I'm sure you and your wife will have as much enjoyment as my wife and I and so many others here on the forum. Has she volunteered to help wash and polish the car yet?

Get out and have a good time. All the best.

Chat to SNG to get their feedback, maybe?
Can you make up temporary extensions to replicate what you had to see if that gives you a working circuit?

Sorry, wish I could help more. Good luck

Hi Lusso, page N20 of the service manual should give you all the information for removing the door trim. Be careful when you fit door mirrors, there are several threads on the forum discussing the options and (dis)advantages. I have a pair of Tex mirrors from SNGB, but it took a lot of fiddling to g...

Thanks for the responses. It was someone I was thinking of using to help do the work on my hub carriers when the IRS is out. He said about making sure you have graphogen for the hub bearings.

Is Graphogen used in any other areas than the engine.
EG in a diff or on bearings in the hub carrier?
Just something been said to me and wanted to see if they were talking with forked-tongue.

(Or maybe they meant another grease/lube in those areas?)

Thanks
