Been working on the interior for the last couple of days with a Suffolk n Turley kit bought form Classic Jaguar
So far so good… I had done the seats a couple of months ago so the car could be test driven.
Only minor gripes so far is that the kit didn’t come with new seat diaphragm and trim clips. No big deal
One thing I regret is not having taken the old interior out myself but when I took the car to the body shop it wasn’t supposed to turn into a full restoration… bits and pieces have been lost along the way incl the cubby on between the front seats, a window handle and the door crash rolls and arm rest.
I ended up building a new cubby today.
Taking a few liberties along the way incl doing the center console in leather (always hated the series 3 plastic), adding a dual USB outlet, removing the ash tray. Radio console was already redone in black leather…
I had decided not to reinstall the rear bench before ordering the kit so I m building shelf instead. The boot floor boards were twisted so I m rebuilding them with marine structural foam core glasses on each side. Much lighter. Finally I m using carpet instead of vinyl for the boot floor and storage where the rear seat buses to be.
Overall all these modifications can easily be reversed but I like it this way… my way
More pictures coming in the next few days.
