First JEC post ever!

Postby DaimlerE17 » Tue May 21, 2013 8:56 pm

Brand new to the JEC and new Jag owner. Mine is a Series 2 Daimler XJ6.

My radio has packed in. Seems that no retro style radios will fit - size of my original radio is 180mm by 55mm. Anyone know ova solution/supplier. I don't want to fit a modern radio, to be honest.

Cheers all.

Hi John,
Welcome to the JEC and with such a nice car (I have a 1978 XJ12). I have a couple of radios at home which may be of help. If not try giving Ken Jenkins a call:

I have managed to source most of my parts through him.

Many thanks. Think I have solved the problem with a smaller radio and a blanking plate.

Funnily enough I spoke to Ken (twice) last week over a speedo angle drive! Small world.

Thanks again,

Jon

OK,
Well glad you have sorted it. I was going into my garage this weekend (yes it is that full it takes all weekend). I will have a look anyway, as I probably need to shift a few bits.

Great stuff. If you find a series 2 lower grill in there I'm after one of those too!

Lol, afraid not,
I replaced the lower grill on mine, old one was ruined, went to the scrappers, sorry.
