Re: Tyres for V12 E?

After the overwhelming number of replies/opinions to this post :D I decided to go with the 205/70/15 Blockley radials and save £200 a set on the Pirelli's. If anyone else is interested or looking for tyres for their series 3, you can get Vredestein Sprint Classics online at Camskill for around the s...

Tyres for V12 E?

Anyone bought tyres for their S3 V12 recently? The P4000's are long in the tooth and one has picked up a large nail. Having done a quick search, it seems that it's either Pirelli CN12 £238.80 at Longstone or Blockley at £149. I don't seem to be able to find anything modern in that size with W speed ...

Re: Gap between windows and top of hood V12 Roadster

Looks like the fabric's contracting and pulling the frames back?
Especially since it's happening on both sides?

Take it back to Aldridge, their prices do cover advice on this sort of thing at least
Thanks Richard, yes, I'll give Aldridge a call.

Gap between windows and top of hood V12 Roadster

Apologies if I'm missing something or being daft but with the hood up and the both the passenger and driver's doors closed and windows fully wound up, there is a gap (side to side, not top to bottom) of about 1cm between the hood and the top of the window, so that the windows are outside the hood an...

Re: Headlining - the different GRP products or recover OE?

Thanks for your replies. In view of my experience with a trimmer replacing the XJ40 headlining and it coming down 6 months later, I think GRP is probably the way to go unless someone knows differently. I saw a video which showed how flexible the myrtle/jaguarheadlinings.com one is and it rolls up to...

Headlining - the different GRP products or recover OE?

The garage owner who I'm taking my car to in Macclesfield says he can always tell straight away cars that have been fitted with GRP headlinings and that they don't feel as right as those with foam. I presume this is because they don't kill sound as well as the original etc. He does fit them though a...

Re: X300 Original Body Colours

Does anybody know all the red colours Jaguar offered for the X300? I think our car colour (can't remember the name but it's like a signal red) was a special order. It's a Sovereign 4.0 registered 1 Jan 1996. Dominic Try http://www.car-nection.com/jagbase/ Good photos of each car in colour: http://w...

X350 colours - Salsa

Does anybody know of an X350 in Salsa red? My father who has recently passed away, has two cars, an X300 and an X350 bought from the same first owner who specified bright red on both cars. JDHT can't search the archives by colour apparently and so I wondered if anyone has ever seen one in Salsa, as ...

Re: Dynamo to Alternator conversion - Wiring

That's really interesting. I was looking at that, as I'm near Manchester anyway. I also like the fact that you can turn it off if required. Is it necessary to convert to an alternator if using this?

Re: Power Steering Again...

Just looking at my C48 Dynamo (a little bigger than the C42), it looks like the Eaton pump would happily fit on to the end. It certainly seems to.

Would this dynamo be ok for use in the MKII with the parts I have?

Re: Power Steering Again...

Also, I saw this on the AES website and assume this is what I need if changing to a dynator;

"We can also supply the LMDC42 with rear drive provision for a power steering pump, as fitted to various Jaguars and Alvis's etc. This is our part LMDC42RD - Negative earth."

Power Steering Again...

Sorry for bringing this up again, I have looked at the other comments on this subject, some of which are quite old. I have had my MKII 3.8 for 10 years and tend to use it every other day from Spring to Autumn. It needs a few things and whilst I'm at it I would like to improve the steering experience...
