  1. Note that you have fitted the half grommets on the bonnet.

    From the bottom up as per moss catalogue or as per the article

    in the old moss magazine I.e.from the top down ?

      Hi Jim, sorry I did not get back to you sooner but I have only just seen this message, for some reason I don`t seem to have been notified.

      Anyway, I did them according to the article, from the top down and used a countersunk bolt and nut with a washer under  to flare out the grommet. Finished off with a plain bolt and washers to squeeze it as flat as I could.

      I found that I had to run a suitable drill through after to get the Dzus fastener through, and to this day I have been unable to get the retaining washers on, not that they wouldn`t go on, but I cannot get them over the fastener let alone try flattening them out, the hole in the retainer is too small ( or the fastener too big).

      However they are in and hold the hood shut, I might have another go at the retaining washers when I run out of other more important stuff to do.


  2. Help. I need to fit two new half grommets to my tr3 bonnet. the moss catalogue says fit them up from under the bonnet part no 552973 and then press firmly by compression.[page 128]. how do I do that???
