Jaguar MK2 Saloon – Paint Correction Part-2
1966 Jaguar MK2 3.8 Litre Saloon.
The Jaguar Mark 2 is a medium-sized saloon which was built from 1959 to 1967 by Jaguar in Coventry. The outmoded Jaguar 2.4 Litre and 3.4 Litre models made between 1955 and 1959 are identified as Mark 1 Jaguars. The 3.8 XK engine is similar to the unit used in the 3.8 E-Type (called XKE in the USA), having the same block, crank, connecting rods and pistons but different inlet manifold and carburation The head of the six-cylinder engine in the Mark 2 had curved ports compared to the straight ports of the E-Type configuration. The 3.8 Litre cars were fitted with twin SU HD6 carburettors. Production of the 3.8 ended in the autumn of 1967.
Following the paint correction and subsequent refining described in Jaguar MK2 Saloon – Paint Correction Part-1 all surfaces were treated with Nanolex EX, a slow evaporation residue remover to eliminate any polish residues and new black chromed badges fitted prior to the application of ENREI, Kamikaze Collection’s flagship two-step ceramic coating, combining state-of-the-art technology and the latest in innovative glass coating components. No. 1 Base Coat provides a uniform layer with a high chemical affiliation for the No. 2 Top Coat. An innovative mix of organic and inorganic layers creates an enhanced number of chemical bonds that provides ENREI with industry-leading longevity.
Gtechniq I1 Smart Fabric Anti-Bacterial was applied to the interior carpets, I1AB is specifically designed to repel water and oil-based liquids, helping to prevent staining. Unlike many fabric waterproofing products, I1AB coats each fibre individually, thus leaving the overall texture of the fabric unaffected. The anti-microbial function kills bacteria and inhibits mould growth.
The leather seats were cleaned with UF Active Leather Cleaner before being treated with UF Leather+ Protector to provide effective protection against abrasion, prevent dye transfer from dark coloured clothing and inhibit colour fade from UV.
