Can you C the join?

Recommended Posts

The bonnet on my TR4 was not very rusty but, resembled the Alps more or less all over.

So I had a look for one and won a red one in Leicester for £28 needing work.

The nose was full of cardboard, wire mesh, and even the Bondo had fallen apart, but cutting a front bit from the Alpine bonnet saved the day.

Sadly the rear of the red hood was rusted through at both rear corners, so again out with the grinderette and sliced off enough of

my original bonnet  to again hopefully get it in one piece. Welding and fitting the rear edge was tricky but hopefully when the strengthening plates come back from the blasters

it should all go together .  Just hope the paint shop man can hide the joins!

Pete dont forget to put the rear strengthening plates under the bonnet so you dont put any strain on the welds at the rear.
