Giovanni’s Accident Damaged 4.2 XK8 Recently Completed Restoration

Giovanni's Recently Restored XK8

Giovanni who lives in Italy has done a great job in restoring his 4.2 Jaguar XK8 to a top class condition. The car was involved in an accident causing serious front end damage especially to the right hand side.

DCR AutoParts were asked to supply a number of parts and ship these to Italy.

These included:

* Upper and lower wishbone arms
* Refurbished front wheel hub
* Front bumper cover
* Lights
* Right hand front wing.

I am sure the car gets many admiring looks in Italy.

Rear Bumper Guide block to side bumper bracket x 2 – NEW PART NOW AVAILABLE !

Jaguar XK8 / R (X100) Rear Bumper Side Bracket Guide Block HJA6554AB

The small but important guide block to side bumper bracket for the XK8 / R (X100) went obsolete from Jaguar several months ago. This small side bracket as marked secures the side of the bumper to the inner structure via a metal bracket. When you try and undo the 13mm nut the captive bolt within the plastic housing it may well just rotate round in the plastic bracket. This then requires cutting off the nut and trying to repair the bracket. DCR AutoParts have remanufactured a heavy duty replacement with stainless steel captive bolt and nut. With a good covering of Copper Ease this part will last a long time and speed up the rear bumper removal.

Jaguar XK8 and XKR Cooling Fans and Radiator Removal – How To

Reasons for removing the cooling fans and the radiator:

1. Radiator replacement
2. Condensor replacement
3. Cooling fans replacement
4. Access to the front of the engine e.g changing the timing chains and tensioners
5. Good access to the lower cross member which is a bad area for corrosion

This method avoids the need to remove the pipework for the AC condensor. If the condensor is to be removed this would require the de-gassing and then the re-gassing of the AC system.
