Replacement offside rear door and carpet.

I need to have some welding done to the sill ends and floors, so all the carpets will want to come out. The car has the oatmeal colour to match the original doeskin (beige) interior leather, I've acquired a dark red carpet set to refit into the car as a replacement. It needs a really good clean up, but I think it'll look great with the black leather in my car, something a bit striking and out of the ordinary.

I've also bought a drivers side rear door, £0.99 from ebay! I'm going to build up a set of four to be repainted and swapped on the Sov.

XJ40 replacement front wings

Time for an over-due update, I've not done a great deal on the cars but I've been an making a little bit of progress. Rust has become worse in recent times so I've been slowly gathering up some panels to freshen the car up. I've put together a pair of front wings that are in very good shape so those are tucked away ready for some paint to go on when the time comes. Panels like front wings that are more or less rust free are getting increasing rare to finding now. I'm also looking at putting together a set of rot free doors as they are starting to hole through too.
