    one thing you have to be carefull of is getting used to having lifters then opening someone elses bonnet and expecting it to stay up!!

    I think the brackets on the bonnet are the wrong way round looking at the picture of the bonnet open?

    Compared to the pic of the blue car
    Handsfree fitting at very reasonable rates in the Hampshire area. Please PM for information.

    You need to fit a smaller washer in between the bottom ball joint and the big washer, the ball joint stud's falling through that big washer.
