E28 / E23 Bonnet Struts

Recommended Posts

Acquired some longer bonnet struts from Ivo.  Believe they are for the E23.

 

E28 Strut:

I know the coolant tank and cap need to be changed, replacements are in the boot :rolleyes:

 

E23 / longer strut:

Coolant tank should look like this :oops:

 

Shots of how far the bonnet will open with both types of strut side by side:

I find that the extra opening distance gives me much more access and a lot less scars on my swede.

Jealous of the garage mick. Just washed my car and know it will be scruffy in a week :rolleyes:

Hi Duncan,

 

Really chuffed with the garage.  A vast improvement over the previous 1930's "big shed" back in the UK.

Hi Tim,

 

Came across the longer bonnet struts idea on mye28.com 

 

Should be in Halifax for the long haul.

 

Regards,

 

Mick
