It's that time of year again where I start to remove more rust from this.

Drivers door has been removed and looked at.





The water from the roof drains via a tube into the door cavity, which is double skinned round the hinges. This makes it rust.
Most of the car seems carefully designed to trap water wherever possible, and to rust.

HERITAGE.

This is a good one.
Seriously, they are full of designed in watertraps, and no cavity protection at all.
Its astonishing that there are any left.

So to sum up, you're driving to Wales to buy another, better Daimler?

And how are you getting the doors, bootlid, parts, windows and so on back home? Is it using the Jaguar mkX chassis underneath and the straight six engine at the front?

Parts are home.
Just to add to the Heritage, they changed the internals a few times. The doors seem to be from a pre '71 car. This means I have to strip out my doors and transplant the internals to the good doors.
I also have to move the door lock and make good, drill new holes for the winder mechanism, cut out and weld in the door latch area and the internal door pull handle area.
The boot lid catches are very different too, I think that will require some more thought.
Still much easier and more successful than trying to repair the original doors.

Those differences stem from Jaguar-Daimler's ongoing commitment to rigorous, continuous development. SIMPLE AS.
