This project has been, and continues to be, one that I still shake my head in shock at the thought of landing. Since January, I’ve been following the build of the six Lightweight E-types that Jaguar are building, right from their beginnings in body in white, all the way to the shake down and hand over to the owner. The guys I get to work with are some of the funniest/smartest/daftest/sarcastic/nicest blokes I’ve ever worked with and I love every time I get to visit the workshops. It’s an absolute honour to work with these chaps and now call some of them mates, and I can’t wait to see the rest of these amazing cars built.
I really hope this (very long album) helps show you viewers the epic detail and precision of work that goes into these beautiful machines. This is the story of Car 1, with shots taken over many months from body in white, to Brown’s Lane, to paint, back to Browns Lane, and finally being whizzed around the track. Guest appearance in there of the mind-bogglingly talented Stefan Marjoram.
