[Saloon-lovers] MK II Interior Redo Chap. II-rear armrest bracketsexposed?

In reply to a message from Mike Eck sent Thu 29 Apr 2004:

Hi Mike:
The thing that bothers me is that the car had a black interior, and
the darn things are white, which suggests they were covered
originally. I know I would have noticed them, as they just look
terrible. I gasped when I saw them the first time yesterday, and
immediately challenged the interior guy, telling him at absolute
minimum to paint them. I guess he was right, although I pulled a
picture of a 67 340 from the archive that is a much more attractive
solution, which I think I’ll tell him to duplicate.

I’m looking forward to installing your clock when the car is back
from the shop. After I change the polarity on the generator…–

Mark -

Just checked and the above is correct. There are two metal ‘‘arms’’
that run along side the arm rest. I have a black interior and the
two arms are black save for a little section at the base which is a
metal-ish color.–

See page 49 of “Original Jaguar MK1/MK2” by Nigel Thorley. It shows the
bracket.

I just switched my car to negative ground so I could install the new
ignition module I built, and it was easier than I imagined. The ammeter has
spade lugs on it, and enough slack in the wires that you can simply unplug
them and switch them.

Anyone interested in hearing about my new ignition module?
