Screw Finishers - XK Door Panels

Screw Finishers - XK Door Panels

Here's another detail item. The nickle plated screws used to mount the door
panels on XK120/140 cars are backed by a small domed finishing washer. I
have been unable to locate a source of exact duplicates of this item - has
anyone else had success?

I got a set with the interior kit I ordered from BAS Ltd....they send along
a packet full
you might give them a call, looks like the ones I took off. let me know if
you need the 800 number, I'll look it up.....

The domed finishing washers you describe sound exactly like the washers
under the small screws that hold my Mk IX's boot upholstery pieces on. I
discovered them at my local Ace Hardware -- about 7 cents apiece; various
sizes available -- just take a screw with you to match up. No JCNA judge
has ever challenged these on my car, so I'm guessing they're very close to
correct if not spot on. Hope this helps

Got your other message. For old-time trim hardware, try a good boating
shop. Many of the hardware trim bits and pieces used on the older cars
originated in the mahagony-and-brass boating supply (a chandelry (sp.??), I
believe they were called) and I found innumerable bits available there. The
tonneau 'snaps', for instance, are the same as used on some boat covers.

Try XK's ---- They offer a screw set with cup washers and a #4 Oval head
slotted screw that is used on MKII wood window rails....

What you are looking for are called finishing washers and are available
through Spaenaur in Kitchener Ont. I have their catalogue. They are a good
source for unusual small auto fasteners. I think I have a couple of boxes
for # 6 screws. We use them for canoes and Jags.

On the XK120 and XK140, the interiors use a number 4 oval slot and number 4
finishing washers. Most of the main Jaguar suppliers have them in their
catalogs. Number 6 hardware is available at most hardware stores.
