The handle has been repaired

When it’s a gorgeous summer’s evening here in Suffolk there’s nothing better than taking out your beautiful 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 for a drive. Maybe find a local pub, grab a bite to eat and enjoy a couple of ‘cokes’ and watch the sun goes down whilst chatting to all the admirers looking at your car.

What you don’t want…or more to the point, what your passenger doesn’t want is the the door to keep flinging open when they least expect it.

Unfortunately that’s the issue we were up against when this one came in to us.

Upon closer inspection, the rod inside the passengers lock had buckled which was causing the latch to remain in the open position…not ideal.

A new handle and locking mechanism was required, once this had arrived to us John got working on fitting back up.

Now the passenger can enjoy the drive just as much as the driver!
