Held in place with double sided tape and 5 push clips.  Had to open up 4 pre-stamped hole locations in order to fit the push clips.

I know, I know the underside of the bonnet needs cleaning and the bonnet catches re-plating... :oops:

 

All in good time.

Hi Ivor,

 

Fortunately it is a light reflection and not rust on the underside of the bonnet next to the right hand bonnet catch :grin:

 

I replaced the bonnet on the Zobelbraun Eta last year, which also included renting a van to deliver it up to the trimmers / body shop, so cost + :shock:

 

The body shop did a nice job of it though:IMG_1376.JPG.e8c01ac4f55ea710451758177c4a902a.JPGIMG_1377.JPG.c8c489106730d6e52f2273661c4aab2f.JPG

 

They also did both bumpers, both wing mirrors, the wheel arch spats and the front valance along with the satin black on the front lip spoiler and the bonnet vent grills :grin:

 

I still need to finish changing the side glass for green tinted and complete the chrome to shadow line conversion :oops:

 

Regards,

 

Mick
