9781907085062: E-type Jaguar DIY Restoration & Maintenance: A Kind of Loving

Want to own a fabulous E-type Jaguar, the sexiest and most loved sports car ever created? Can't afford the tens and tens of thousands of Pounds or Dollars or Euros to go and buy a superb example, or have one professionally restored? The alternative is to restore one yourself. Can it be done? Is it even possible and practical to restore or work on one yourself at home, or will it all end in tears, and be an expensive, depressing mistake? This book can help bring the dream to reality. This is the story of how one man did it, how he completely restored his beloved E-type Jaguar, transforming it from a complete wreck into a gorgeous and usable example of the most iconic sports car of all time. Drama teacher, Chris Rooke, has had no engineering training but his uniquely candid approach to the subject is both instructive and fun. In these pages, he freely admits his many mistakes so that others can avoid them, while giving masses of practical advice that could only be written by someone tackling the challenge for the first time. This hard-hitting book is copiously illustrated throughout with over 550 colour photos. Chris' camera was always to hand as he worked, and this has allowed him to illustrate many aspects of the work, the pitfalls and the solutions. A down-to-earth enthusiast through and through, Chris' passion, honesty and determination are inspirational. He overcame every challenge and helps the reader do the same.

About the Author :

Chris Rooke was brought up in a mechanical family, inheriting his love of all things mechanical from his father, who was always tinkering with clocks and engines. Where he gained his love of motorcycles from is anyone's guess! His first bikes were a Vespa 125 and a Lambretta SX200 at the tender age of 13, followed by a Raleigh Runabout, and then a Casal moped when he was 16. He purchase a BSA Starfire 250 when he turned 17 - the first bike he ever rebuilt that went again afterwards! After a short dalliance with a Suzuki Rebel 350 he bought the love of his life - a 1954 Matchless 350 GLS Heavyweight single that he stripped down and turned into a bobber/chopper, and this remained his sole means of transport for many years. Sadly that bike was stolen, and after rebuilding a Triumph T100 for a friend, he purchased a Triumph Bonneville T140, which was duly rebuilt and pressed into service, but later sold to fund a house purchase (familiar story?) and for many years he remained bikeless. When his fortunes changed for the better he bought an E-type Jaguar 4.2 FHC Series II which he completely restored from the ground up. The whole process took nine years, but as soon as he completed it he had to sell it for financial reasons. Undaunted, he was then able to buy two Triumph Tridents, a 1973 T150V and a 1975 T160, which he completely restored - these are the subject of another of his restoration manuals. He has now turned his attention to one of his most coveted classic motorcycles - the Kawasaki Z1. Having lusted after one for so long he bought two - a 1974 Z1A and a 1976 KZ900! The complete restoration of the latter and complementary work on the Z1A forms the basis of this real life restoration book.
