First, we sold our red Series one Jaguar XKE, and its new owner is getting alot of enjoyment running it through the gears… We are still in the process of finishing three other Jaguar E-Types and then we still have a few others that will need restoration. Within the next couple of weeks we will be done with the metal work on the ’67 E-Type roadster project and then it can come off the rottiserie so the finish work can begin.
Our current service workload is also very busy with newer Jaguars and Land Rovers. We are working on a Land Rover Discovery II engine overhaul which includes our improved virtually “bullet proof” engine modifications. Our daily workload has included many Land Rover Discoveries, LR3’s, LR4’s, and BMW era Range Rovers. All major jobs which have been keeping us very busy! The 2004-2008 Jaguar XJ8 (X350 & X356) sedans have also been a popular sight within our workshops. At least once a week for the past couple of months we have been doing timing chain component upgrades on the 4.0 liter 1997-2003 Jaguar XJ8 and XK8 cars. There seems to be a renewed interest in these wonderful V8 Jaguars.
With the great summer weather we have had this season, its no surprise that we have seen our fair share of convertibles. Many Triumphs, MGs, and Austin-Healeys have come in for repairs or maintenance. Several Jaguar XK8s have been in to upgrade their convertible top hydraulic lines. We upgraded a few before the customer’s got the “dreaded green shower”, however some came in too late… That’s a messy ordeal!
I guess we are very fortunate to have so much work to keep us busy! Thanks for all your confidence in allowing us to take care of your cars.
