I am so glad I found this forum. I have learnt so much already. Kirby’s “handbook” (rather a tome) is fantastic. I am excited to attempt the “silicone squeeze” next time I pop the hood open on my '89 XJ-S. I hope to not screw that up, being entirely mechanically inept!
I’ve wanted an XJ-S ever since seeing it the first time when I was a kid. Finally got one a couple of years ago and absolutely love it (including the few times that it has left me stranded, or needing me to push it across a busy Chicago intersection to safety, realizing the heft of the this machine!). Plus I can fit both my kids in the back when I pick them up from school, no minivan required. It is more fun to drive than my '13 M5, or the '70 250C!
Looking forward to continued learning and many more miles.
