I noticed on The Jag forum you were working an a E-type interior removal document.I an currently restoring a 1971 coupe series2 and would be interested in a copy if available. email@example.com
I’ve just taken the rear hatch off my E-Type Series 3 FHC….I found that the two hinges both seem to be worn, with a lot of movement. Can these be refurbished? Or must I buy new ones? And if so, do you know who stocks new ones? Best regards, Alan
Sorry, I’m not familiar with the Series 3 cars. I would suggest posting to Jag-Lovers.com Etype forum. There are lots of knowledgeable folks there.
