Ever popular Shmee150 on youtube got a sneak peak at his new Aston Martin Vantage GT8 and filmed the process of it getting basecoat at the factory.

Will Stone has XKD 526 for sale and has posted a great history on his website: http://www.willstonecars.com/jaguar-d-type-1955.html.
While researching the gauntlet panel/shift dome/shift tower for our E-Type I decided to lookup McKeel Hagerty’s own 1966 E-Type.
That’s because his car is a 20,000-mile, original-paint and original-interior survivor.
The car is almost completely untouched from original delivery minus a few items like hoses, clamps, ignition loom and header tank.
Here it is pictured from the 2015 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. Chassis 1E11307 for reference.
Our long-term Healey BJ8 restoration is ready for the engine and interior.
Since our last post the suspension, steering, wiring harness, dashboard and rear shroud have been installed.
Some notable additions include a Fuel Flow maintenance-free fuel pump, the autosparks wiring harness with alternator, radio and fog light mods, a 3.9 Dennis Welsh rear axle, and a wooden dashboard finished by Coventry Woodworks.
