I love cars with picnic tables. The ones in the Daimler look fairly good all things considered. They move in and out smoothly which is more than I can say for my last Daimler.

Just a bit of clouding in the lacquer, unfortunately X308 models are prone to the lacquer clouding and there is evidence all over this car....

I don't think that's remotely fair and if nothing else, it may make people think twice about posting because in your eyes it doesn't constitute a "proper project". That's a bad thing - I want people to post more, not less.

If you, or anybody else doesn't like what people are sharing you don't have to read it. But just because something doesn't fit your criteria of what constitutes a project doesn't mean that there aren't plenty of us who find it a valuable contribution. It takes a lot of effort to put this stuff up on here and I am grateful for everybody who does it.

Just found this thread not sure how I missed it.

Cracking looking car and one well worth saving.

What's the difference between the Daimler and the Jag?

Thanks, a Daimler is sort of a top spec version of a Jag. A bit like Maybach was to Mercedes. They are special editions with softer leather, luxury options like the individual rear seats, and more wood trim inside.

Oddly Jaguar killed the brand off in 2010, but it might come back one day.

Thank you for explaining.

I honestly had no idea that Jag ever had this top spec brand.

Keep up the good work and the updates coming.

P.S ignore the comment above any restorations or projects like this are more than welcome by me. I love reading them all in an evening

The boot looks pretty good - all carpets are in nice condition, just need a hoover and clean.



Obviously there is a pushed out area to the passenger side, where the accident damage is. The CD changer has been pushed into the boot. I have no idea if it works.

Some minor damage to the latching mechanism, although its just cosmetic.



The boot toolkit is not complete, but I suppose at least we have one.



An eccentric previous owner has put the locking wheel-nut in this tiny blue bag...



This battery seems in good order. I have the receipt for it and it is actually due for replacement in theory, but it seems strong for the time being.



Poor mans version of umbrella hoops....



This connector sits unconnected by the battery; I wonder what it is for?
