Glyn I have two 1963 Lucas wing mirrors removed from a 1964 S type. They are complete but the chrome is pitted and the glass is faded as old mirrors fade and lose their silver.

personally I don't like wing mirrors, they obstruct working in the engine and are not effective for rear view. Yes they look pretty but are not effective.

that's why I replaced the one Lucas door mirror with XJ-6 electric mirrors. I would not go back to fixed mirrors. Today's traffic requires safety equipment to protect the car from envious savages. haha!

Yes ~ I will fit the wing mirrors for show. I'm using a clip on door mirror at present & it's fine. One can't fit modern mirrors to a concours car & it's never going to be a daily driver. It's a toy for high days & holidays that I will not *******ise in any way.

Purely out of interest, how are the “side rolls” of the head lining fixed in place? I don’t intend to replace the head lining on mine (1965 3.8 auto) I’m just curious .

Richard ~ They are glued with a Furflex type tab/tongue running their length & trapped at the front by the upholstered steel moulding above the front screen & rear by a chrome clip where they meet the C pillar rear window surround.

The woodwork holds the rest in place which is screwed from the doorjam under the rubbers.

EDIT: Just to muddy the water further ( I was not going to mention this as it is of little interest to most) ~ but on SA CKD built cars with vinyl headliners the centre piece was vinyl over foam glued to the dome & the side roll was premoulded in soft touch plastic with the same/similar pattern as the vinyl.
