A Mostly British Obsession

E-Type Painted

1961 Jaguar E-Type - Just Painted

Mark Jones of Britsport just sent me a few photos of what happened in the paint booth today. Car will sit for a couple of weeks in the booth, and then it shows up here for the big mechanical pieces to go in, and then back for color sanding and polishing before exterior trim and interior.

Of course, I have none of those mechanical bits ready to go in yet. I need a windfall–and my mother was just mentioning the accidental death insurance she carries…hmm. I like her, though; I should probably stick to trying to raise money honestly. Anyone for a mortgage derivative?

Progress is glacial, but it does eventually happen. (Of course, glaciers are in retreat all over the world so perhaps that’s a more apt analogy than I want!)

    Wow, I need a moment alone with that picture.

    Stunning – looks like a flying saucer on that stand.

    stunning! don’t completely dismiss the idea of becoming a rent-boy,though,to help finish all of this…it’s not honest, either, but it is honest toil and besides,on the island you would have the market to yourself !….just a thought….j
