Pleased I found a solution for the front licence plate, but of course it is masking the badges on the lower rack, so some work required here
I’m having a bad day, month, or whatever, so what’s left of me goes out to you in weekend purple.
I have to say that the “Jag Forums” are anything but helpful! So far I have learnt nothing from reading them as they are, in the main, a load of worthless opinions founded on best guesses rather than fact or mechanical expertise. All very annoying.
Personal sitrep: Mouth still very sore, difficult to eat due to lack of teeth. total lack or energy, very suscepetible to cold, running nose and watering eyes. Sore hands and feet, but apart from that GREAT! Weight still at 159lbs which seems quite ridiculous despite trying to eat more. Better buy some teeth!
So success in the form of the number plate hanger but back a step on the design of the lower grille badges. No matter off it comes again, survey the problem, and now take out the middle section and two old UK shooting badges. New design looks good to me.
Nicely spaced, looks good, ……… but!
Forced into town as the rad leak from the Cadi is getting worse, but we have kept her that way for a couple of years so time for some more leak stopper for the radiator, ……. seems to have worked.
However, comma, on the drive into town the Jag wants to say thank you and pops up another message “ACC BLOCKED SENSOR” ……. another with one of it’s many AMBER lights. While I sit and try and deduce the clue and trying to think what it could be, of course the obvious is something I have touched, bumped, or otherwise nudged while working on the grille.
Offending badge removed, not sure yet
Home again and read through the “AMBERS” and as expected its airflow to the Radiator that I have blocked off with a badge. Badge removed and now it needs a road test to check if it comes on again
Clouseau checks from underneath, “itsa bodged blockee badgee”
“Thank you Inspector” Yet more thinking, perhaps I should get the Jag Repairers to do the boot and the Licence plate lights as I have neither the knowledge, expertise with Jag electrics, or as it seems any of the other many and various quirks. Better give them a ring this afternoon.
Right, down to the workshop and see what else will sell. 2 more items went on ebay, better find some more! Durango is ordering the parts for the boot and licence plate lights and I can sit and wait while they do it.
Back to the “JAG” ER for a rear end go through. Stop complaining I had to have it done 3 times!! ON ME!
Another enquiry about the bicycle rack, lets hope this buyer isn’t using those fat tires! Some hopeful purple flowers ……
Crocus today, used to have loads of these in the woods near where I lived as a kid
Weather turning crappy again, cooler and with yet more strong winds, surely there must be an end to this? I have some serious cycling to get on with!
She sits and …….. waits ? …… and waits some more
With all the Internet research I’ve been doing (getting nowhere) I might add, I did turn up the “Back door to Heaven” so if I have no “ID” when I get there or I’m not on the Voter’s List I suppose you go to the Tradesman’s entrance?
Amazing! Rough old side stand from a TY250A, put on ebay last night, sold and shipped this morning! Better find some more.
Quick test drive to see if moving the badge is more to Jaguar’s liking and so far no more annoying lights.
Wednesday morning and finally the bicycle rack is SOLD! taken a while but sold it is, and a good start to the morning. Weather says cold and VERY WINDY! up to 45-50 gusts. Well I needed a free day to read all about the other features not covered in the owners manual. Back inside after the sale, and I notice another ebay sale they haven’t told me about to somewhere in France for a front brake plate and shoes, can’t complain and another $45 in the pot.
Not one of these, though I have plenty, but a “glitzie” one
BACK TO THE LOFT!
