Hi Nick,
Thanks for the kind words.  Most likely culprit is the 
starter relay.  I believe it is one of two behind the 
battery in the RF wing.  All the others are above the 
right hand cubby bin under the dash or inside the 
instrument binnacle.  You're just going to love this 
electrical system.  It will remind you of an XJ6.  I'll go 
look at the wiring diagram and service manual and get back 
to you.  I have the same problem with my TR8 and am too 
cheap to buy a new relay.  I just keep taking the can 
apart and fiddling with it.
