[concours] Re: [xj] Sill (door) plates

Dennis: two types of plates were used on the S3. The early plates to 1985
are anodised aluminium and cannot be restored (but new ones are being made,
I have been told. They were unavailable for a long time). The 1986 to 1992
plates are highly polished stainless steel and yes, they can be restored to
new condition professionally or you can do a very creditable job yourself
with LOTS of elbow grease and metal polish. The marque plates for the centre
are available from Jaguar if yours are too far gone.
