W152 5.3 V12 Build, 1999 - 2004

The project that really started off the Grublogger/XJSstuff business was this build of my Ronart W152 V12. I had to source many Jaguar parts for the build (5.3 engine, Getrag gearbox, front/rear suspensions etc.) This gave me the idea of a retirement business dismantling XJSs and selling the components.

These slides give an idea of the build process, from engine, chassis, through carbon-fibre body at the factory, to SVA, and the finished car.

Here is a movie of the original W152 5.3 build, between 1999-2004
