My Pepperpot wheel project is 99.9% completed. Tires have
been remounted and are back on the car. She looks a lot
better now than when she was on the jack stands that
supported her while I took my sweet time refinishing the wheels.
As I mentioned before I am super impressed with the quality
of the AutoGlym wheel silver paint. After a few coats of
clear coat over the top of the AutoGlym one would be hard
pressed to tell the difference between my efforts and a
brand new OEM wheel. My worst effort was the wheel I had
designated as the spare and that was only because I didn’t
take as much care in preparation on that wheel. As it is you
have to look really close to see the imperfections.
Here is a link to my PhotoBucket album that I have updated
to show the Pepperpots.
I said, I am 99.9% complete. I still haven’t heard back from
Robert Laughton on his offer for a hold down bolt. I am
guessing he is still off camping someplace, see his previous
My wife doesn’t share my passion for Jaguars. When she asked
me ‘‘why’’ did I replace 4 apparently nice wire wheels with
these wheels I replied it was all Gregory Andrachuck’s
fault. Ever since he sent me a picture of his black cherry
mistress a couple of years ago I have wanted Pepperpots.
Simply put, to me they look ‘‘quintessential’’ Jaguar!!!
NOTE TO CARL HUTCHINS: My Michelin X P215/70R15 radial tire
mounted on a Pepperpot wheel just fits in the spare tire
well. It is snug but I can still latch the 1/4 turn
fastener. See if that works for you on one of your old Kent
wheels. Probably really don’t need the tie down bolt but I
still want it to make it right.–
