The old Jaguar comes home, as a replacement for our Jeep.

Cosmetics on the old Jaguar are attended to in a first round of sponge/toothbrush action.

You could perhaps try Macon Park Motors in Crewe (on the little industrial estate next to Crewe Alexander FC's car park) for a quote to do that bumper. I've heard from a few people that they do a good job, but I don't think they're a bargain basement outfit, and I'm not sure what your budget is. So perhaps have a chat with them and ask to see some stuff they've done before making a decision? Nothing is cheap these days car repairs wise, but I always think a poor-quality, cheap paint repair will be grinning at you every time you look at the car.

Thanks VFG will bear them in mind.

Lots to see in this evening's video: Ford V8 Pilot outing, classic BMW sighting, Harrier jump jet, Avro Anson at Sleap WW2 airfield, grey Fergie tractor, & classic race car trailer movearound.

If you could get a good colour match it would not be a hard job to do the bumper repair yourself. You need a paint suitable for plastic and although metallic paint has it's challenges, if you have the patience it is achievable.

I do applaud your choice of Jaguar. What a lot of car for the money they are. Yours is a particularly nice unspoilt gem; I quite envy you!

(I am particularly interested in the Jaguar marque and have been an Honorary Life Member of the JDC for many years.)

They used to say add a couple of drops of silicone to the acrylic paint to paint plastic parts. Do not know if it works on 2 pack or other paints.

I would bet if you get any silicone in the paint you will get 'fish eyes' in the finish.

I don't know about fish eyes but a panel beater told me that is what they do or did. It was some years ago as they all use 2 pack or water based paints now.

A unique collection of 1950s-1980s colour photos and slides relating to cars and motoring went live earlier today. Oddballs include what could be a pre-production Morris 1100, and the one-off Ferguson R3F.
