The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

The heat control cable wasn't connected to the valve on the engine when I bought the car. Nick (previous owner) advised me that it didn't work, which is why it was disconnected. At Curborough, I asked Nigel from QRG, he didn't have cables, but suggegted leaving the outer in place & replacing the inn...

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Hi Chris,

SRE 353G (900): I bought it in April 2018, it's in Warwickshire.

I did email Matt, when I bought it, but his list has not been updated.

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

I had no intention of making a new heater unit, just making the most of what's there. Definitely not Project Binky style.

Yep, the XJR is an auto.

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

Hi Stew, The SS1 is close, I was having a push on it. However, having recently got myself a workshop; I've diverted to fixing the car that the coupe was supposed to replace... My Jag XJR 6 has been sitting with no MOT since the end of May. I was undecided whether to sell it for spares or repairs, or...

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

Well done.

The rust isn't going to polish off the chassis is it!

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

Hi Nick, yes I know the pipe to the rad is none standard. It was the hard pipe to the back of the water pump that I changed.

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

Yes, doubled up anti roll bars. It was a period mod for a stiffening up the front roll.

The heater hose was replaced with straight silicone hose. Fine at the water pump, a little tight to the rocker cover at the top.

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

The nights are starting to get chilly and my coupe didn't have antifreeze in it, as I'd done some flushing & topping up a few times and the heater matrix started leaking (currently by-passed). I know it's needed for anti-corrosion, but I wanted to change a couple of pipes first, and just hadn'tgot r...

Alternatively, you could drop the chassis on to casters. A board or wooden frame with castors screwed to it, something like these (but a cheap home mafe version):

Alternative master cylinders

I've used Tilton master cylinders on a few different competition cars. I've not had any problems with them. They'd be my first option for future projects, decent quality at a reasonable price. Theu don't win any prizes for looking original though if that's your thing

There was a tastey Rover SD1 Vitesse in the car park last week.

Coupe alloy rad

Here are a couple of photos of the alloy rad in my coupe. It's from Alloy Racing Fabrications. I don't have any more details on it, as it was fitted before I bought the car, but thought the photos might be a helpful reference.
