Over the years with the Jags we've experienced the good and the bad.
As you could imagine Jaguar owners only want the best.
A jaguar purist own Sterling Electroplaters at Heidleburg and his work is A1
And it has to be as he's also a club member and you don't wanna upset the fraternity.
Cheers Phil

New purchases this week...
Bought the TMI Sport R Foams and OER 67-68 Camaro seat frames.
Going for a custom leather trim instead of the original Nova buckets & PUI covers.
Figured i've already spent a small house worth of cash...i might as well go all the way.

You should be careful what you say, that could come back and bite you when she is out shopping.

'Bout bloody time i got to do something on my engine.
Now that the car's in the panel shop, i can spend some time on it, also been helping build my son's 179 Stroker which is up to final assembly.
So for mine, it's block clean up, fit main bearings, big end bearings and measure sizes, measure crank journals and calculate clearances.

Hi Lyndsay
Now i have engine envy....
Im still sticking with the LS1 but its stroked to 383cubes, AFR heads, Holley Hi-Ram manifold and stack injection.
I kick myself now & then for not going the 6.o litre but...oh well.
The LS1 will still crank well enough, when its eventually built.

Ive had too many other toys to play with... 1st world problems eh?

The boys at Motorvation have put in a stellar job so far and they're a great bunch of blokes.
