    My 3.0 X

    Hi

    Been around on the forum for a while and been meaning to post a pic or two. Finally managed a quick snap after a wash the other night, its a nice day so might give the old girl the full treatment today and take a few more!

    The car is totally standard, except recent centre cap upgrade for more modern ones from fleabay.

    Looks good. Have thought about changing the side repeaters for clear ones?

    Had not thought about that, but worth considering. Cheers.

    Hi

    A few new pics after a number of hours cleaning yesterday.








    A wheel refurb is on the cards once we have cleared winter, drivers side front has started to oxidise in a couple of areas

    And I am also after upper and lower stainless mesh grilles.

    You've overdone the cleaning on that rear number plate!

    Looks tidy.

    I've already suggested the clear side repeaters, but you could also replace the tired looking wheel centre caps.

    Green/Red/Black available, £20 ish from fleabay. I got a set of OEM red ones ages ago, looks good against the green body colour. Yours is BRG, where mine is Jaguar Racing Green, but it would still work well.

    Cheers guys. For sure Robbie1003, still feel the same about mine. Lol big cat little cat, believe it or not the caps were only bought last summer from ebay! They are quite a light shade of green, actually are in good nick, guess it's the poor quality photos from my camera phone to blame
