The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

Having spotted one of the steering rack gaiters was perished, I'd bought a new pair to fit. When I couldn't get the drivers side on in place I pulled the rack out. So replacing the gaiters turned in to decrease, clean-up, prep & paint. 20200509_163646.jpg Now I know it could do with new mounting bus...

Well, it got moved out the way so I could work on my coupe. After blowing the worst of the dust off with an airline, I gave it a quick rinse off

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

I'm not a fan of the bullet mirrors from a functionality point of view, which is why I went for a rectangular mirror. It's just the range of adjustment is quite poor.

Welding Practice - 1995 Jaguar XJR

DARK STAR Possibly without lock down it would have been painted by now who knows. It's got a few more joins in than when it was new though! b.c.flat hat The under pinnings are quite an old design legacy really. The complexities of the rear suspension are similar to Jag designs going back to the 60'...

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

The plastic rings, that retain the glass, on my wing mirrors were falling apart, so the glass was going to fall out. I’d temporarily (about 6 months ago) taped in the glass on the nearside. 20200501_193221.jpg I’d identified them as a Ford mirror, but I couldn’t find anywhere to get spares or replac...

Rear anti roll bar bushes

You might struggle with anyone else having an after market rear anti roll bar. It might be easier to measure the outside size as efi_sprintgte asked, then get in touch with Powerflex / Superflex (email or phone rather the website) & ask them what they've got that will suit with the br diameter too. ...

That was clearly 9 years ago, as it was your 40th birthday. I think it's a sign of age when you start saying where did the time go...

I'll dig out my fancy suit to try on Nick!
