Glad to see the love for the older Jags here, there are so many fantastic projects here that I could spend hours reading!

Ziggy, nice to see a familiar name, hows the STR?

I love XJs - I remember constantly flicking through the pages of brochures of these and their Daimler equivalents after a trip to the motor show back in the late 70s. I agree the wheels are a bit marmite but other than that it's awesome.
