  • Re: 1954 MK7 Jaguar


    That would be bitchin'! sorry, Should have caught on sooner that it was steel. I was under the assumption that Jaguar made all their cars from Aluminium.
    That's funny I had a few people tell me at the show that the car looked so good and how did I get the aluminium to look that good.
    One of that other things that happened was I walked into the shed that it was parked in and there was someone sitting in it, I could not believe it

      update on the project, I had to get some new wheels for the frame table, so instead of buying them I went to my old work (alloy yachts) which has closed it gates and got a old work bench that had wheels on for two boxes of beer, down here to get caster wheels to take 800 plus Kgs it would cost you about $150 each, so I was happy with this deal , once I got the wheels on the frame table I could drop the chassis down and out and then put the body on the table, now the the frame is out from the body I can start setting up the running gear, LS1 and a 6 speed are to be fitted,

            No update so far, I got a LS1 and a 6 speed manual for a good price, then I had it shipped from Aus,😃 it landed 3 weeks ago and I still have been able to pick it up, gov paper work 😡

              Damn Auzzies...... Or maybe damn Kiwis?

              Hope that resolves soon.

                    Guess what, I was aloud to pick up my motor and box today, LS1 and a T56, this is going to make the old girl get up and go, so now the hard work will start and that is fitting and getting it all lined up

                            Cool that you sprung the drivetrain out of jail!

                            I've forgotten - is the Jag RHD? Either way it seems to fit reasonably well if the steering and exhaust will play nicely in a limited area. Please keep the updates coming.

                              Hi Dan, yes she is RHD, steering I think will be fine, but exhaust will be fiddly, this is the put I have not been looking forward to

                                On the Volvo I was able to fit in a set of Mustang shorties but I had to modify 1 tube on the driver's (left) side to clear the steering shaft. I tacked the modified pipe in place and took it to a local guy with a TIG to finish weld it. Anyhow, it now fits well. Hope you can find a similar solution - pretty painless.
