    Vented bonnet is fitted at last--Pics inside

    Well finally managed to fit the bonnet. It was cold, windy and wet but we ignored all that just to get it done. The car really needed a really good wash but I didn't want to do that and have to work with wet metal everywhere so ignore the fact the bonnet appears not to be a good paint match as it's the only clean part of the car. If I polish up a small section next to it then it's a very good match.

    Ok here it is, done it in a before and after fashion.

    Just need to fine tune the fit now, may have to alter the rubber bonnet plugs to get it to sit a fraction lower. Also have to fit the under bonnet noise supression mat after altering it to expose the vents, may get onto that tomorrow. I've not taken any pics of the underside yet as it still needs all the cutting paste rubbing off it and it's dark now so I'll do it tomorrow as well.

    Not fitted the Irmscher bonnet extension yet as well as I need a new bonnet scuttle to replace the one the thieves damaged ripping the old one off. It should be on as well shortly as soon as I can visit a scrapyard and buy a replacement.

    looks like a nice job. Not quite to my taste, but a million times better than those annoying carbin fiber grill less attempts.

    Yeah I can understand that view, however the double vent had already been done quite a bit and I wanted a different look if possible. The side vents caused the most problems as well as I needed to alter the wing retaining rail to clear them. It wasn't hard TBH so I can't complain, the vents will drain straight to the floor by the look of them, which is a bonus.
