Re-furbished Front XJS / XJ6 Sub frames
The XJS subframes are becoming harder to obtain, we have a large stock of subframeswhich are blasted, metal primed and coated in a finish of your choice. Generally we use hammerite, this is because of the durability, often we find mechanics use the subframes as jacking point which will damage normal 2pk paint and powder coatings. Hammerite is easy to maintain and will keep the subframe in good condition for years to come.

Idle control Valve ICV
The common problem with the V12 engine idle. When Jaguar brought out the injection system in the mid 1970’s this idle control valve was fitted to V12 engines.
