    Interior help needed please.

    Hi all.
    I have a 74 M reg series 2 XJ6 LWB. It is a beauty but the interior door cards are a little worse for wear.
    I have been offered a rough 74 M reg Daimler VDP and the door cards look OK but the pockets, armrests etc are in different positions.
    As you all know already, the door furniture doesn't just hook on the door card, it hooks into specific holes on the door itself. So now you know exactly what I'm going to ask don't you?......

    Will they or won't they?

    I’d be tempted to re-cover the originals, there are places that can match the material.
    Jim.
    2012 XKR Black pack, Speed Pack, Aero pack, Rat pack. Past:-87'XJS 3.6L, 93'XJ40 3.2L gold, 95'XJ6 4.0L sport, 00'XJ8 3.2L sport, 2005 XK8 4.2L coupe, 2009 XK 5.0L Portfolio in that order and enjoyed all of 'em.

    I do not offer advice, I only say what I would do with the set of circumstances presented. Your choice always.

    To be honest they don't fit too well. I think they were made by a trimmer some years ago and they don't quite reach to the door capping so they sag outwards

    Hi Steve,

    Did you have any luck with your door cards?

    I have a 1974 Daimler Double six and am looking for some interior parts. Mines a bit of an oddball. Registered as a VDP but missing some VDP details!!
    Had mine resprayed and have just re fitted all the chrome.
    Now its the interior

    Did you purchase the VDP?

    If you did would possibly be interested in buying some bits.


    Many thanks

    Simon
