    I guess I am worried it will change the color, or not come out evenly.

    Recommendations? I'll try and get some pictures of my interior and seats in the next couple of days.

    Wow an XJS and a Jenson Inteceptor... plus what looks like a Lamborghini?

    Nice collection!

    Thanks, Chris -

    The yellow car is a de Tomaso Pantera - Italian style, with Detroit Muscle. It has an Italian body, with a Ford 351 Cleveland V-8. It is a fun car, very fast, and stylish. The "working man's GT-40".

    But on a more serious note - I am worried that my XJS is projecting the wrong image of my lifestyle (NTTIAWWT). Does anyone else have this condition? It is very pronounced on the right side of the car...

    Who invented these nutty cars?

    I decided I would be a good owner, and change my differential fluid. So I drained the diff.... Then I spent about an hour trying to figure out how to get a square 1/2" drive into the differential fill plug! Nearly impossible from under the car, and the one time I thought I had it, I felt like the corners of the plug were rounding out - so I stopped before I damaged anything any more!

    So I did some reading, and realized there is a round access plug behind the spare tire! Whoo-Hoo!

    So I prized off this plug, and learned that it's offset from the fill plug by about 6"! Ha! No surprise, engineering submits drawing, accounting approves expenditure, production procures tooling and plug, and the line tech chooses easiest spot to drill (independent of where the hole SHOULD go!)

    So I got out my trusty hole saw, and cut a 1" hole in the trunk for perfect access to the fill plug. With this new access hole, I was able to remove the plug, fill the diff (without spilling a drop), and replace the fill plug.

    I then used the piece of metal I had cut out as a centering piece on my new seal-plate, and RTV'ed everything back up and tightly sealed the two access holes I had opened.

    It's madness that you have to drill / cut holes in these cars to perform repairs (trunk latch), or perform routine maintenance. I hope I don't have to work on my fuel injection, or my motor mount! I'll have to saw a hole in the fender!

    I wish I could post pictures, but I have used my quota.

    But my car is running great and my wife is enjoying it! That's the important thing!

    Sorry - not sure why the pictures are rotated....


    Here's the big hole, and my smaller access hole...




    Here's the fill plug, and the access hole sealing plug / plate.

    I have heard of others who have cut a hole in the bulkhead to access the diff filler plug.

    For those who prefer not to cut the body work, the plug can be removed from under the car (I have done it more than once). Its fiddly, but no special tools needed - I just used my regular socket set as far as I recall.

    Crikey interesting discovery.

    Incidently - if you want to post more pictures you can, you host them on other sites.

    Try www.tinypic.com

    You upload them there, then in the body of your posts you add the link to them, with [img] and [/img] either side.
