Bonnet issue

Bruce,

When you say new.... do you mean new... or just new to you?

If you have a bonnet the same as mine (1986) (I was the original poster on the other similiar thread), you probably have 4 rectangular plates which have rubber buffer pads riveted to them. If this is the case and you want to install the safety catch you will need to remove the second one in from the right (looking from the front).

Once the plate is removed the catch is held in place by 3 bolts which screw into 'nutserts' which need to be set into the bonnet.

You will need to mark holes and drill accurately with the correct size drill for the nutsert.

I'm at work at the mo... but I can post the part no of the nutsert if what I have said so far is appropriate to your bonnet.

Regards

Nick

IIRC all new bonnets come "Blanded" ie no holes no nut inserts etc etc

I think this because there are a number of variants and this does many of them - as such you''ll have to drill all the holes fit all the bracketry etc and bits and bobs from your old bonnet.
