Morning all,

A handsome machine with lots of potential ... ?

I'm surprised to read that the chassis rails are in a poor state, is this a common weak spot on this model?

Oh yes! Bet money on that one. There are crossmembers with no drain holes and Jaguar thought it would be a good idea to put rubber bungs in the ends of the chassis so that any water getting into the main rails canít get out.

It does look very familiar to me, I am sure I have seen it advertised before.

It has indeed on at least two previous occasions.
