What a dope! I went mad with my power Karcher washer on my 1986 5.3 HE and accidentally damage about 50mm of the wide coachline (1 thin 4mm and 1 wide 14mm) on the rear nearside wing. The silver (or gunmetal?) tape is now missing on that bit of coachline. I've sourced some vinyl tape and while the colour match is really good, the joins are very obvious. Clearly it would be expensive and possibly damaging to underlying laquer/paint to have it all stripped off (the adhesive layer is VERY difficult to remove without damage to paintwork as I've found out the hard way!) and replaced with similar products that are out there on the Internet which are purported to be for the XJS. Short of covering up my mess with something like a badge or leaper whichi would look naff, I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone has any bright ideas or recommendations.
