All parts need to restore the petrol filler box and connection to the fuel tank

On the parts overview I forgot to place the overflow tube which drops spilled liquids inside the petrol filler box. (Same as the tube used between brake reservoir and brake cylinder. This tube can also been seen on the “Petrol filler box new” photo.

The cover has 8 holes but the car one show 6, so the two screw in the front bottom are not place originally.

The hose clamp around the overflow pipe was originally not place but was not sure if it will stay in place under all conditions. (Petrol inside the car is not a very reassuring thought, better safe than sorry)

Because the compartiment inside the Jaguar can get very hot during long drives in the summer, they created the possibility to bring fresh air into the car via the so called ventilator box. In the front wing a small rectangular shaped recess door has been created which can be opened/closed from the inside of the car. In open position the air is forced to go into the car. A metal filter will prevent small objects like bugs or stones will reach the compartment.

When I received the the brake reservoir was not available anymore, only the brakes was partly mounted on the inner wing. Via ebay I was able to find a nice original brake fluid reservoir.

After everything has been painted and new parts bought (brake hose and clamps) everything can be mounted on the car again.
