Neil

Welcome to the best place for advice, help and occasional banter about the E Type. Tell us more about your car, post a photo or two. Is it in need of restoration or are you waiting for spring to get out and put some miles in?
If you add your car type to the signature area it'll mean people will know which model you've got when your asking for advice save you having to include that info in each post.

Hi Neil,
Welcome. Its a really friendly and down to earth place for help and advice. I only lately got into Jags and mainly owned muscle cars. I'm down the road in Egham if you want to keep in touch.

Quick update on progress.Turns out,the body resto was pretty good,the mechanical side,not so good.Over the last few months,all the front ball joints,recon rack,rear uprights sorted.At present,doing an O/D gearbox.When that is back in,all rubber mountings being checked,new osf ww hub,probably,nsr as well.Get the exhaust raised as high as possible.May sort the radio.That is about it,for the moment.
