  4. Gday Rolls, I am at this stage myself, the correct fitting of the bonnet is very challenging. I have found that I was easily able to change the shape of the leading edge of the bonnet with a slight twist of the hinges. I fell that the final fit may be affected buy the bonnet seal especially the leading edge but also up the sides. Have you trial fitted the bonnet with the rubber seal yet.? The bonnet is very flexible with barely a finger touch. Your car has become a benchmark for me, and I must be commend for your persuit of excellence cheers, Allan

  12. Hello Goirgio, I have just read through this thread and noticed you were deciding what to paint about a year ago. I am wondering if you have finished your paint work " satin black" and if you are happy with the result. I am restoring commemorative 076 and I have the same dilemma with which items should be satin. Best regards, Allan
