One thing about them, if I remember correctly, was that it was the only S-Type that didn't have folding rear seats, so as to retain the structural brace behind them. Never seen one in the flesh to check however.
Strangely enough James, the seats do actually fold, but pretty pointless unless you are prepared to unbolt the large Bracing Panel which is the same width & height as both Seat Backrests together, with a middle cut out for the Ski Hatch and Bag. The Cable Pull Releases are well hidden down behind the Boot side Carpet faced Material, unlike the other S Types where the Cable Releases are much more prominant.

Looks like you have done an excellent job on the cat, will be doing my fleet slowly over the next couple of weeks, as the weather picks up

Very interesting Doug, thanks for confirming the position. In many ways that makes it even more unusual, redundant functionality and all that.

thanks for the positive comments everyone. i took the opportunity on good Friday while the wife was at work to re-do the centre hubs of the brake discs and the rear electric handbrake calipers. last year i painted them by hand with a brush with caliper paint and they looked ok but not great, so i rubbed them down, gave them a coat of primer and spray painted them with 2 coats of high temperature paint to give a smoother more natural finish.

yes it's looking as well as it ever has Stu with this new compound that i have used, it gives a superb swirl free finish and shine. look forward to seeing your motors again this year. the concours winner MGF is as good as it gets.

That looks absolutely stunning, ziggy. Brilliant work!!

The best colour for a big jag, and the bright silver wheels really lift it to another level completely. It's incredible the difference a well prepared set of hubs, discs and calipers can make to the overall look of a car.

A real beauty you have there buddy.
