genuine carbon is on the list to be done at some point, although I wasn’t aware engine cover was an option

I know it’s not to everyone’s taste but I am a fan... if you come across it and are willing to part ways, please message me

Will find it. We made a few for Jaguar. The supplier they use ended up with the retail version costing an eye watering £2300. Lets just say we ended up more reasonable.

Oh that’s cool to know! Dear god, think that’s a bit more than eye watering

Thanks for the picture too, very pretty

Drop me a mail and if I can dig it out I will agree a sensible price. Jags mark-up was pretty criminal.

Contacted Jaguar UK about history, they’ve got no record... So I started contacting all of the dealers who’ve stamped the book... noticed that the handover address and first service address were the factory... how odd!



The dealer that last had the car, in April of this year, have no record of it being there, either against the reg or the vin...

Annoying, but such is life! Went through the boot and found a multitude of receipts and things, nothing to give me info on the owner specifically.

Sent of a V888 form, as there’s a few things to send to the previous owner that I’ve found in the car:

Checked the oil after some ‘new car excitement’ driving, went to pick up some oil and rear pads as I’ll be doing them Friday afternoon:



Can see the chain and a pipe:



Here’s an example of the ‘theatre lighting ‘ option:



Here’s a new rear pad, look rather thin for a performance car, but I’ve never had one so not sure:



Replacement boot seal arrived, featuring that awful white paint pen writing all breakers use



Here’s why I needed a replacement:





Removed the boot trim:



Pulled off the failed seal:



Cleaned the seal up whilst it was off:



Here it is fitted:





Then treated the rubber:



That’s all I managed on the jag tonight...

I did also take the private plate off the bmw and is now on retention ready for tomorrow... I took the last few pictures for BMW sale and will list it shortly.

I’ve got a fair whack of parcels due this week, will hopefully make some good progress on sorting some of the smaller issues. The bodywork and wheels will likely be done after winter

One of my bosses has one of these. Loves to eat rear pads.

His is an 09 plate. One owner car which I have first refusal on when he sells it.

Definitely follow through on that first refusal, so much fun! Im looking at machines capable of winding the callipers back so I can do the pads at home... I know there are ways around it, but like things to be done properly and an easy life is a happy life
