Jaguar Mk2 Restoration

Hi, thought I should introduce myself and my project. I've been a very inactive member for a few years but I have (finally) found the time to get stuck into my bare shell restoration of my Mk2. This is a local car that started its life in 1961 in Carmarthen. My father bought it in 1966 and any of you who lived in Cardigan around that time may remember the white Mk2. I bought it from him in 1973 and ran it for a few years but then laid it up due to bodywork issues (it was a Jag after all). Tragically it was then flooded in the notorious Mwldan flood of 1986. That forced me to either scrap the car or do something to rescue it. Of course I did the right (expensive) thing. The bodywork was beautifully restored for me but pressure of work has stopped me doing any more to it for too long. Now retired and living back in this area I can finally get stuck in to the rest of the work. Just hoping I can find all the bits. I'd be very interested in getting in touch with other 'compact' Jaguar owners in the club, especially those heroes who have done any restoration work.

Hi Chris, the main advantage of having electronic ignition is better starting. It also means no more fiddly points to change or set. There are many systems available on the market. I don't know what v
