Nice Jag, Dominic. Good idea, IMHO, about going to Pepperpot wheels

Dominic:

Outstanding. I’ll bet you walked around with your chest trying to
pop the buttons on yur shirt and a hat that wouldn’t sit down on
you head.

Why not have two sets of wheels. You can change off to change the
car!

What’s wrong with the ride height? It looks fine to me. I think it
is to be 24 5/8’’ at the center of the inboard light!

Great work!!

In reply to a message from Cannara sent Mon 23 Jul 2007:

Thanks for all the replies. As well all know…hours upon
hours of work go into these vehicles, and to actually get
this jag on the road after it sat in the garage for 3 years
while I spent long nights in freezing weather to finish it
up within a reasonable time frame felt very good.

Chris, does that mean you have a set of pepperpots for sale :wink:

Carl, it felt great to have such a nice machine as a ride,
and the interior seats are fantastic with new leather and foam.

If anyone is interested in information on how to convert to
the euro bumpers, its quite easy, finding the parts is
another story.

I will be posting more pictures shortly of the interior
trunk and the trunk mounted tool kit.

Dominic,

Very, VERY nice Sir! I particularly liked the ABSENCE of the
obligatory leaper on the hood. I really like to look much better
without it. Joust one old man’s opinion of course but if I recall, I
don’t think they were delivered to the dealer with them.

Really a very beautiful automobile Sir Dominic!

Lovely Car, Dominic.

Out of interest, is the centre console contemporary with the door
cards? I’d always thought the ‘three tier’ console came in along
with the later door card type (e.g. with the relocated mirror controls).–

Just for the record, Carl - it’s 24 5/8" on the outer lamps…:slight_smile:

Welcome back. After cavorting with the yung’uns, this place will
seem sedate!

Yup, your right, you caught me on the measuring point before. You’d
think I’d learn!! Outboard it is. At least, I got the numbers
right!

In reply to a message from Justin Hill sent Tue 24 Jul 2007:

When I was having the interior recovered, I had my guy
recover the center console in biscuit, although not original
from the factory (only on VDPs and late model v12s, and of
course isis blue interiors), I think it looks much better
than the black vinyl.

Gorgeous car Dominic. Just goes to show what patience and hard
work can accomplish. Forgive my ignorance, but I can’t see a whole
lot of difference between your bumpers and my regular US ones
except for the fogs. Are the Euros tighter in or shorter ? Is it
that they don’t have the 5 mph shock absorbers ?

Right. The Euro type only protrude an inch or so…the black rubber part,
that is. The USA/NA type protrude 3+ inches.

And, if you want to exclude variations in tire & wheel heights, measure from
the body to axle – from the lower lip of a fender to the center of the
growler cap is good. This establishes the correctness of the suspension.–

True, of course.

I look at it this way, though. There’s only a 1% chance that I’ll get hit on
any given day. There’s 100% chance that I’d prefer the way the car looks
every day :slight_smile:

See? I can make things come out just the way I want :slight_smile:

In reply to a message from Doug Dwyer sent Wed 25 Jul 2007:

I agree Doug,

Of course, I also thought of the safety aspect of installing
the slimmer bumpers. The most important aspect of the car
at the end of the day is the safety of the occupants. At
more than a 5mph crash, the body of Jag is going to
ultimately absorb the impact anyway.

My first jag was an 86 BRG with wires, I ended up T-boning
a less than cautious driver who ran a stop sign. I bent the
aluminum bumper beam in half, destroyed the oil pan,
radiator, fenders, hood, steering column, frame…you get
the idea. If I had the euro bumpers, the damage to the
body, frame, engine probably more significant. Although
probably not more to myself as an occupant.
