A nice series 1 XJ6 here for recommissioning after 20 years sat idle, along with the 2 major jobs below were many other small works including removing and cleaning the 2 fuel tanks which contained lots of debris, 1 new fuel pump, fitting electronic ignition and a general checkover replacing all fluids and carrying out all necessary repairs. First job was to get it running, with bent valves and no compression on 3 cylinders it was time to remove and recondition the cylinder head. Once the car was running the rear suspension was removed so that new brake discs and callipers could be fitted along with new shock absorbers A service along with a good clean and detailing before moving on my low mileage Vauxhall 2300s which had served me well as my daily driver for 2 years. This car was in amazing condition and had never been welded a perfect survivor that was also very reliable and never let me down. Engine service and tuned ready for the new owner The successor to the Vauxhall Victor an Austin Princess 2200 HLS, the car had stood for a long period parked on grass and the damp had caused a fair amount of corrosion underneath as well as being a non runner with faulty brakes. The car was stripped and the welding completed first, new floorpan repairs were made to replicate the original shape and welded in. Other welding work was required to outer sills, 1 rear wheelarch, a replacement used wing and repairs to windscreen pillars. With the only available panel being a rear wheelarch repair there was no option other than use good secondhand panels and fabricate the repair sections. Wheelarch repair section fitted. Underneath stripped and primed. Schutz finish applied underneath. Rather than send this car to the paintshop, I prepped and painted it myself. Topcoat of original colour Sandglow applied and the build up in progress. An early MK1 Interceptor, as one of the earlier cars this car had opening window vents and kingpin suspension. It arrived with a long list of faults the owner wanted attending to including full service, ethanol resistant fuel pipes, repair to leaking radiator, replacement of brake callipers and flexible brake pipes, new wheel studs and many other minor niggles. Bleeding the brakes after repairs completed. Final checks before returning to customer.
