Hello everybody,
What would be the best way to polish up the stainless
steel trim around the windows and windscreens. Mine
has lots of scratches and I was wondering if it would
be ok to use wet-sand it with a fine grit sandpaper?
Any suggestions?=====

Michael,

I had all my stainless buffed by a local metal polisher - it came up
beautifully, and didn’t really cost that much, especially considering the
hours and hours I would have had to put in to do it myself. Your could use a
very fine grit wet-dry paper, but you will still need to buff to bring back
the shine.

Good luck,

Headhunter (Can we have your real name please?):
If you are in the US, you won�t find one. The Series III V12 was not
sold there. If you are in Canada, the 1984 V12 car will be a Vanden Plas
(no V12 badge). If you are in Britain or Australia, the car will likely have
an HE badge on the boot lid.

Yes, you can use 2000 grit wet/dry paper followed by a good polish such as
Autosol.

Hello Dr.A,
I put the new springs in that Welsh Replaced for me.
Wow! What a difference new springs make…I had taken
out a couple of friends and they all complimented how
wonderful the ride quality is. Even on these sometimes
rought New York City streets…the ride was superb! I
am considering new tires next month. Which Michelins
were the ones that you recommend?— Dr Gregory Andrachuk V12-VDP@shaw.ca wrote:

I use a small buffer wheel attached to my die grinder. I got the buffer
wheel attachment, stainless compound, and lots of other cool stuff from the
Eastwood Company (www.eastwoodco.com). If you are searching by category,
look under Buffing & Finishing/Buffing/Buffs. Alternatively, you can search
for item 13039, I pretty sure that’s the wheel I’ve used for this purpose.
Note that you will probably also need the arbor adapter described with the
buff.

In my case, water-sanding was not necessary but there’s no reason why you
couldn’t do it if needed. BTW, in relation to another thread, the wheel
could probably be used with a dremel too.

how do I tell an 84 saloon v12 from a regular xj other than the
motor?

there are some clues: 215 tyres for the V12 vs. 205 for the XK; the
HE badge on the V12; the speedometer reading up to 160MPH/240kph on
the V12 would be the most obvious. Personally I wouldn’t buy these
cars after just a “quick look”.

happy “hunting”:)–

Hello Arnoud,

Maybe there are market-differences, but the speedo in my '82 goes all the
way up to 260kph; I’d assume they all do, the early HE’s were tested up to
237 kph in standard form. (that’s a lot of speed for an almost 2 tonne car)

Cheers!
