Anatomy of a Series 3 XJ

Sometimes I'm asked how far I'll go with the teardown of a car.
To put it simply, I'll take off anything you want.... No Problem....

I was recently asked for some replacement sheet metal, and I had the perfect car for the breakdown. This 86 XJ6 had about 68K miles on it when it threw a rod through the block.  It was from VA, and had very little rust. I was actually glad to get the call for the body metal, as it was too nice to simply crush...

I decided to chronicle the breakdown, to show the craftsmanship of the car, and what makes it so strong (and heavy).
