Thanks, Joey. Movin’ on to other pursuits like installing a trailer hitch on the XJR…by the way I left that car for five months over the summer with a battery tender plugged in and it fired right up when I took it out of storage. Also, thanks again for helping me sort out the computer reset on that car last year.

Lovely car, Eric. Hope to see it go to a good home.

Thanks, Nick. (and thanks for the bump).

Nice appearing car. You mention it was built to JCNA standards. Being heavily involved in JCNA over the years, I was wondering what standards those were.

I used the concours judging guidelines for the S1. The thinking was I might want to remove the upgrades to the car and show it some day. So the plating, paint, hardware,etc are correct. In fact I was really annoyed way back when the paint color for the brake/cluutch bracket was changed/clarified and I had to completely disassemble that area to change the tint of the paint. But there are clearly many non-compliances from the upgrades. Why do you ask?

I’d guess Eric means slalom tech inspection standard Dick, rather than anything to do with concours? Maybe he means the ‘Specials’ class where originality isn’t an issue?

That said, I know bugger-all about concours so maybe there’s a limit even in that class as to how far you can go down the Restomod track? Of course, I like to think I’m building my D to better than Lynx standards, that would depend on them judging it and letting me know whether I was correct or deluded!

I have people that are always looking for cars and had one inquire about yours. In looking at it, I could not figure out what JCNA standards it was restored to as it has a lot of non original modifications. Thanks for answering.

It would take some effort to get it back to complete compliance with the judging guidelines, but the bones are there if someone wanted to do so. For example the electrical system changes (primarily additional relays) were done with jumpers and rededicating wires in the original (brand new) engine harness, That harness with the fabric loom is under the plastic loom tubing so it stays nice. But if someone wanted the car back to the precise factory configuration, I could strip out all of the upgrades and modifications and have it in original “trim:” in a couple of weeks…a little more if I had to put incandescent bulbs back in the instrument panel. The original fan, starter, generator, etc are sitting on the shelf. The AC could be removed in a couple of hours. I’d have to buy a new lucas points style voltage regulator. But removing the upgrades would be ludicrous in my estimation. The only thing that needed attention was that shift lever binding issue I asked you about a while back, and I think I have that addressed…need to wait until it gets really hot outside.to be sure. You’ll be getting the cover/shift mechanism if the issue persists in the Spring.

I just had an inquiry this morning. I usually do not watch the classifieds. I used to run a couple of my Jaguars in the modified class as they were modified to my tastes and needs. No reason to remove stuff. Might be an added benefit to offer the original items with the car but these usually sit on the shelf as the more modern stuff works better. Like I said, nice looking car.
