[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Laura has been busy all week working on the bonnet of our 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series 1, the racing car!
The bonnet headlamp diaphragms on both sides are badly corroded as are the mudguard panels so we have decided to purchase a new set to work with rather than spending time and money correcting the existing ones.
If you are looking for these parts yourself then they are readily available from any of the main Jaguar stockists and the SNG Barratt part numbers you need are:
BD16422 Bonnet Diaphragm Right Handed
BD16423 Bonnet Diaphragm Left Handed
BD16382 Mudguard Bonnet Right Handed
BD16382 Mudguard Bonnet Left Handed
Be aware that different suppliers us different part numbers but you tend to find they all recognise each other’s part number. The same numbers above from Martin Robey are MRE84CLH, MRE84CRH, MRE84RH and MRE84LH.
Many of the key classic car vehicle suppliers have fantastic diagrams on their websites, they are hugely beneficial as they help to pin point the exact component that you require.
Here’s an example:
There are so many classic Jaguar parts stockists available to choose from. We find the prices are very similar to one another but if time is on your it is often a good idea to phone around to check on stock availability as well as costs.
As we all know, restoration costs can easily run away with if we are not careful…[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”9474,9475,9476,9477,9478,9479,9480,9481″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
