Jaguar Restoration

Pictures and posts about my Jaguar EType restoration project.

  1. Fuel Tank Restore and install

    I finally got around to refitting my EType gas tank. I first had the tank boiled out and coated with a rubberized tank coating to prevent rusting on the inside. Then I use glass bead media to strip the old paint and, while I know it isn't "original" I painted the tank with POR-15 to give it an extra bit of durability and rust resistance. I also applied some Road Kill sound dampening material in the boot where the tank sits.
