New acquisition. The car has been off the road and apart for 20-25 years. Last two owners didn't complete restoration. My turn now. Still assessing bits to see what needs to be done. Originally from CA so the body has little or no rot. I hope all the parts are there. It's my "Jag-In-The-Box"!

Your restoration is looking great, Mike. I owned 1E30036 (now in Denmark) from 1982 until 1998, and finished it in the same colors. Hopefully, I can pick up another barn find and repeat the process. In the meantime, good luck with your restoration and drop me a note if you hit any snags--these pics look all too familiar and I still have my notes. Looking forward to seeing this one finished and on the road!

Original interior was dark blue with light blue piping. Probably looked very sharp when new!

I predict that it'll look very sharp when you're finished with it! Light-blue piping on dark-blue seats may have been a special request by the original owner. I don't recall seeing that combination listed in any of my sources.

While the BRG looked nice in photos, it had not been stored properly since being painted about ten years ago. Also the paint job was so-so. I had all the paint removed, top and bottom, inside and out. This wasn't the original plan, but it seems those never mean much anyways. After paint removal, the whole shell was sealed with epoxy primer. There are a few past sins to rectify and then paint. The plan is to stay with the BRG; base/clear coat. A new biscuit interior came with the car and that will look nice with the BRG. Time to start thinking about all the mechanical bits; lots to do there. The engine had been professionally rebuilt, so I'm hoping that will need little attention. The Moos Box will need to be looked into; that should happen next month. The big deal will be the rear end which looked to have never been out before.
I wish I was ten years younger; might need the time!
Mike.

Finally back from paint. Used a Land Rover Green that's not as dark as some BRG's. Will look nice with the biscuit interior. Now I just gotta finish everything else!

Entering year seven with the rebuild project. Nothing has not needed attention. Did a re-paint a few years back. The Land Rover Green was too "yellow". Found a correct Jaguar BRG and had it duplicated. Much better. Next step will be getting into the interior. Looking for help on some of the tricky parts. Onward...………..

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
