Restoring a 1962 Jaguar E-Type

WordPress just poked me in the ye

Filed under: Uncategorized — Penforhire @ 8:20 am

WordPress (where this blog is freely hosted) just did something funky. They updated “image alignment classes” and just a day ago they decided to update my ‘theme’ with this change. No warning and no choice. Totally screws up my image word wrap. Now we have text spilling around my photos on the right!

I complained but their answer is to edit every image in every post I ever made. I’ll try to figure it out in new posts but I’m leaving the old as they are. Sorry about that!


  1. Yuck. That is why I run WP on my own server. Hope you work it out.

  2. Interesting site.
    The “widget” looks like the starter solenoid (press the rubber end to start car from under the bonnet – whoops!…) – similar still available cheaply.
    The relay box is perhaps an RB340 control box? Still available cheaply; if it was an RB310 it would be very expensive!

    The bracket is indeed for the washer bottle – made of glass so quite rare now and very expensive. It is a Lucas Screenjet. Can stick a plastic bag in there as a temporary measure.

    Best wishes, Stephen.

  3. Well like any part from a 45+ year exotic Jaguar, replacements are relatively expensive. However, the glass washer reservoirs and pump are being reproduced (as are the plastic reservoirs)…at least they are available.
