Paul's (Browns Lane Beast) XK E Coupe (E-Type) Jaguar

Postby Paul » Mon Aug 08, 2011 8:37 pm

Well, many thanks to Aston's :D :D :D , I've now finally secured and XK E Coupe (AKA the E-Type) ! :D :D :D

The reason I've called it the "Browns Lane Beast" is that there were numerous Jags originally made in Coventry (both good and also not so good re: the BL days, on the latter).

I think I'll have a go at spray painting ( :shock: - this could be worse that the SG !) as I'd like it to be dark green - just like some of the old racing XK 120's.

As, I'm going for a dark green body, then it'll have to me cream leather seats etc.

Well the above is the latest theory ! :roll: :lol:

That would be one heck of a mix ...... would it help with the colour for the body work?

Easy...... make a stand, Blue Peter style, either use the shower cubicle or the bathroom Gaffer Tape required for the latter to seal around the door, And start to decorate.......

I'm not sure what year it is, but from previous comments, I don't think that there are any differences in the model - only the box

If I chicken out of spraying the bodywork dark green (with the cream interior) my other thought is to leave the bodywork red, but use the ash grey leather rather than black - not techically correct I know, but what the heck!

testing the wormhole you've created on your signature -
you'll need to spray paul -
there are casting seams that will spoil the looks badly -
so the order of the day is sanding those off and priming/spraying -
and you'll be doing it, even if dr julius and dr astons need to set up a painting guide thread for that purpose :mrgreen: ...

Whilst I'd prefer the Green/Cream, the Red/Ash Grey would better suit the coloyur scheme of my flat ! - What an excuse!!!!! :oops: :lol:
