Hi Ron
what parts specifically do you need ?
i do not have a 38 SS DHC but many of the Saloon parts are interchangeable

Dick,

I'm trying to line up a few parts sources in advance of beginning the project.  Initially, I would like to find someone who makes (or can make) a correct reproduction of the wiring harness.

CJA member Cordell Newby (dba Western Jaguar) in Portland, Oregon can supply pre-war wiring harnesses.

Dan
this is a VERY new forum and not many people have signed up yet
and the ones who have do not check in very often
as i told you in the PM i have never owned an E type so i can't give you much help
hopefully a member with an E type will check in and give you advise

Dick
Ron your car is looking good
are you going to put your top on ? or have it done ?

Dan, with all due respect to CJA, if you have an E-type you should be on the JCNA E-Type forum which is very, very, active.
The url is  http://www.jcna.com/forums/main.php?Vfnum=130
I think you can view the forum without joining JCNA, but you must be a member to post or reply.

Dick, we're going to put on a new hood (top). Currently looking for semi-original mohair fabric, but so far no results.
