    Re: 1954 MK7 Jaguar

    Bryan -
    Sounds like good stuff. Who makes it? We get lots of international brands of refinish products here and I might be able to get it if I knew the mad chemists who brew it.

    In addition to DuPont, Sherwin-Williams and PPG (and other US brands) we get (or can get) Glasurit, Sikkens (our local PPG dealer just went to Sikkens/Wanda), and lot of others so it might be available.

    Thanks
    Dan

                I know it has some time, but about two months back I got a second job after hours and I have doing a lot hours and I have no time for the jag but the work load is not so hard now so I can get into the project car once more, so here is today's job on the car done, it is the last of the doors so now I can move onto the body, I hope to have the body done over Xmas and have on a trailer for the Kumeu hot rod show, it is one of the biggest shows in New Zealand, every year I have done something to one of my cars and last year everyone got to see the start of the project, the raw car, so this year they will see the hard work that has been done.
                Today's hard work


                This is the car I had at Kumeu car show last year

                            Knucklehead has carpet paws and has the run of the house so we keep him pretty much out of the shop except for an occasional visit. He stays clean and I don't have to keep an eye on him.

                              Merry Xmas, It has been some time, but I have not being sitting on my hands, so here are a few photos of were I'm up to. The body has been taken back to bear steel now and I have started on the inside (this by the way is were most of the rust is) very dusty but I have to say the old girl is coming up good, next thing is to paint the inside black (rust killer) and then I can hang the panels and start some panel beating.





                              here is a pic of the dash, this will need some work.

                              and a pic of the rust, this is the worst bit in the car,


                              so hopefully in the next few days I should have some pics of the panels getting hung and the inside black and I have to make up some body mounts as well.
                              Merry Xmas and a happy new year

                                Actually, the car looks darn good and that's VERY little rust for an old car. Please keep us in the loop!

                                Merry Christmas (or do you folks celebrate it 6 months from now?).
