XK8 floors are regular rust spots which are quite easily fixed, there is a plate under the floor which is a moisture trap - I sprayed grease from an aerosol between the plate and floor anytime I was under it and didn't get an issue.

The 4.2 us a better engine as the chain tensioners don't need replacing, if that is needed on a 4.0 the repair can cost what the saving between models might be.

My garage? That's my place of business!

The Jag is back in the unit to be flatted and cut and polished, after which a drive-by *might* happen. God knows when we'll find the time as we currently have 2 other (less exciting) projects, along with normal work.

We have been asked to paint a light aircraft and we have bought a touring caravan that we are gutting and turning into an office...

Well, it looks like a nice garage and so I still want it cool

Fingers crossed for the drive-by.

Sounds like you're diversifying rather well there Jim.
