Richard Hammond's Jaguar restoration hasn't gone to plan

Motor

2020 was the year of the Jaguar for Richard Hammond, with the DriveTribe founder kicking off the restoration of two classic Jags - and XK120 and an XK150. The '150 is very nearly finished, but a mechanical gremlin has stopped this beauty from hitting the road.

    Not gonna lie. The montage of you showing of the bodywork reminded me of when you made fun of exactly that on Top Gear.

    Look on the bright side, he can still sit in the driver's seat and make the growling, screaming, whining noises an 8-year-old boy might make when trying to mimic the sounds of a race car going like the clappers. On a serious note, that XK 150 is looking absolutely beautiful.

    Milk in 1st. Of course the milk goes in 1st! That way you bring the milk and the tea up to temp together. Milk in last will scald the milk as the 1st drops are over 90C. Milk scalds at 86C. Shame. you can test this with temp gun. Send Richard out the back to find and clean al the left handed screwdrivers and hammers.

    My BFFs Brother rebuilt a crashed XK140 and was interviewed by the British Welding Research Association for his first job. The interview took place outside beside his rebuilt car. Result - Bevan Braithwaite became the CEO of the The Welding Institute as it was renamed and advised on all aspects of metal construction - Globally - throughout his career.
