Jaguar - Paint shop

Visit to the paint shop today. The rear end is primed.

I dropped off a data sheet to remind them of the make and year of the Jaguar for their inquisitive customers.

Some Jaguar trinkets.

Made a mounting bracket for the right front bumper for the JCOF badge.
Purchased this card holder at the JCOF Concours d'elegance show in Lakeland May 15th. Holds my JCNA membership card and JCOF name tag.

Jaguar - Paint shop

Coming along. Maybe some primer next week.

Rear fenders out enjoying the Florida sun and good weather.

Rear fenders almost there as far as preparation goes.

All the customers that come by the paint shop ask about it. I'll have to make up a fact sheet for them.

Jaguar - Paint shop

Visit to the paint shop. Still working on sanding, filling, preparing for primer.
I have been going over the parts catalog and trying to identify other additional parts I need to order.
No firm date on when the paint will actually go on.
It is going to end up better than when it left the factory (birth?) June 28, 1952. Build (conception?) date was May 22, 1952.
