1970 Jaguar E-Type Series 2

1970 Jaguar E-Type – work complete

The work on our 1970 Jaguar E-Type is now complete. Donna has replaced the leather on the torn and worn centre arm rest with brand new. Mauro has replaced the existing door rubbers with lovely new rubbers and Pete and Hal have carried out a full and thorough service and re-commission ready to get her back on the road.

First outing will be Martlesham Heather Aviation Museum for this weekend’s classic car show.

Replacing the E-Type door rubbers

We have now removed the old rubbers from around the door and are currently removing the glue.

Once the area is completely clean we will fit in the new rubbers.

Recommission after 1 year off the road

The current owner has owned our wonderful 1970 Jaguar E-Type for over 25 years. Just over 1 year ago, on a drive back home, the brakes seized on causing a burning smell. They soon free’d off but when home the car got put away in the garage where it has not moved ever since.

A fantastic example, our E-Type will be re-commissioned and prepared ready for the Suffolk roads once again. the brakes will need to be overhauled and a thorough service will be undertaken.

The door rubbers will be replaced with new due to the existing ones being heavily cracked and would inevitably let in water.
