July 2020 News Round Up


 

Welcome to the latest Xclusively Jaguar News Round Up!

This month’s cover picture features MWK 28G, the earliest surviving XJ6.

The picture was supplied by the owner of MWK 28G, which recently underwent a full body repaint at Painting Classic Cars after disaster struck at the NEC, Birmingham last November.

Keith Parrington of Painting Classic Cars tells the full story of the catastrophe and rectification of MWK 28G

After relating this story to the editor of Jaguar Magazine, Les Hughes has promised a 6 page feature on the history and significance of MWK 28G in a forthcoming issue of Jaguar Magazine!

From top to tyres, cleaned with Meguiar’s

I have used these 3 products on Brucie since I first discovered Meguiar’s and I believe that they have kept his paintwork in pristine condition. Used properly, and with adequate preparation beforehand they will bring an extra sparkle to the paintwork on your Jaguar!

Make the most of a summer without shows by using this “3 step deep crystal” system to prepare your Jaguar ready for when events resume!

Daimler V8

Ian Burrell owns a Daimler V8 which is just back from a complete carburettor rebuild and engine tune at Mike Stewart Performance Engineering.

Ian has spent five full years working on this car and after a final machine polish and wax he is happy with its current condition!
It still has its original Lucas foglamps fitted, so Ian found  someone on Ebay who goes by the name of “bingowings2” and had some Lucas branded covers made to protect the foglamps while the car is on the road!

 

The Apprentice!

With the help of one adjustable spanner and twenty or so phone calls to Rob Jenner, Paul Keating managed to gather some useful X-type parts from a local scrapyard, which he has now listed on ebay.

If you own an X-type and you are looking for reasonably priced used parts, you can contact Paul at paul_keating1986@hotmail.com

 

For Paul, a keen Jaguar owner who runs the XJ40 Register, the object of the exercise was to learn more about the inner workings of these cars and common problems (such as sills, in the case of X-types).

He has pledged to invest his “X-type Parts Earnings” in a proper tool kit!
