Another Daimler-specific trim detail is the stainless strip over the middle of the hood (helps keeping this BIG car nicely positioned when you're sitting on the wrong side in a right hand driving country.. Webasto manual sunroof is original, noisy, but together with the completely open side windows it gives a very convertible feel those two days it doesn't rain here in Holland :)
Twin exhaust pipes will one day be replaced with stainless (suggestions anyone?); also, the handmade stainless ribbed part on top of the boot is Daimler-specific.
English understatement? Note the absence of a Daimler
logo! I have learned that this is original; The indication "Double Six"
was deemed sufficient for recognition by fellow nobility (I daresay, old chap, that's not a Jag, is it?)..
Wheelcaps with the stylized "D" give away the car's identity from the side; the stainless steel strip along the sheerline is not original, it is difficult to find for the two-door, but it does look sweet..
Tyres fitted are "VR" type Pirellis, safe and very firm, with excellent road-holding capability; they are a bit noisy though; does anyone have experience with Michelin or other brands on these very fast heavy cars? The original Dunlops were a lot less 'glued' to the road at speed or in corners.
