Proper door sealing, window frame to door sealing & door card protection crucial. Cuts wind noise. Stops water getting to your woodwork & door cards. Original Prestik type material used by Jaguar to seal frames to doors deteriorated badly. Interior of doors liberally coated with Tectyl & longlife Polyurea Synthetic grease on all mechanisms.















Original car during stripping. Fortunately zero rust. Man they were liberal with contact adhesive.







Finished job.

Wow, just wow!

Visiting from the XJ8 (X308) section of the forum, (but have owned MK 2 and MK X in the past).

That is one wonderful restoration, congratulations on such a dedicated and exceptional restoration/preservation of a classic Jag, You should be truly proud.
