    Bonnet Tab Mod Question

    have finnally got me bonnet realese tab after i broke the other one doh! but was wondering how do you drill a hole through the bracket finding it a bit difficult to keep the drill straight, so can you take the bracket off and drill a hole outside the car?
    (hopefullly tthe tab will look better than a coat hangar hanging out of the grille lol!

    Sounds like you need a sharp drill.

    Easy to do mark on one side and centre punch the mark, then carefully drill all the way through the bracket.
