Jaguar E Type (XK-E) Interior Trim Upholstery Specialists

Jaguar E Type (XK-E) Interior Trim Upholstery Specialists

During the May 2014 edition of the Jaguar E-Type Club Magazine, Malcolm McKay did a feature of the specialists of the E Type (XK-E) interior trim and upholstery restoration world.

This article took an in depth look at “soft trim” that was featured on the  Roadster (Open Two Seater OTS), Fixed Head Coupe (FHC) and Two-plus-Two (2+2) Coupe E Type models. It featured thoughts on what parts of your current / original interior trim may be salvageable and what parts would most likely require replacing; and if this latter route is taken, where to purchase these kits, and what they comprise of.  Please refer to attached PDF to read this article, by clicking on the magazine Front Cover Image at the bottom of this page.

Jaguar E Type (XK-E) Fixed Head Coupe (FHC) 3.8 litre – The Day That Started my Love Affair – Part 6

Seems to be an reoccurring theme these days – and long may it continue – John Skinner (Manufacturing) Limited have been mentioned again in a feature story in the E Type Club Magazine (July 2015).
