    XK120 OTS refurbishment

    Sadly, my (Dad's) old XK-120 was damaged in a house fire last May. Happily, the damage was only cosmetic and repairs are currently underway. Attached are some before and after pics, and the repair work. "Refurbishment" will include completely repainting the car, all new interior, and some new chrome work, where required. She'll be gorgeous (again) when complete!

    Refurbishment was completed about a year ago. Even more gorgeous than before (fresher now), and ready to "trade up" to an E-type....

    Just got back yesterday after some front end work - now drives stable with none of the dreaded wobble that sometimes afflicts these cars. Happy about that.
