Refitting the Jaguar E-Type Front Bumper After Re-Chroming

20110526 Collected - 20110527 Fitted

Day 1 when I got the car.... I always thought the bumper let the front of the car down.



The chrome after its been rechromed and been given a good polish Wink



Building it up...









The standard of the parts:











These sections were in poor condition and apparently after dipping there was more braise than metal on the inside
they did the best they could.



Before fitting it back together I gave it a good coat of hamerite silver smooth on the inside Wink

For that extra bit of protection good idea

Edward is now quite busy with Self Drive Hire bookings for March.

Also getting lots of enquiries Self Drive Hire for Weddings.

Image from a recent of drop off for a wedding recently.





Hoping to do a front suspension rebuild at the end of the season, plus I have a
new set of rocker covers to polish and fit for Edward so thats another job to fit in
but at the moment Reggie is taking preference...
