    Earth improvement

    Put a shakeproof washer each side of the cable terminal. I take it that you have an earth lead from the battery to the engine as well as the chassis connection?

  18. You may find that by pulling the sides inwards a little the bonnet will fit better. Just needs a little tweak. Where you have slid the bent stiffing panel you may be able to fix a small angle piece to help stiffen the panel straight along the top tube. At the moment it is sagging down, it needs to be supported. I would not recommend doing anything to the nose cone, to let the bonnet go back any more. Mine has about a 1" overhang from the side tubes at the corner.
  19. I am with Bob, mine had about a 1" gap. You have the option of how you wish to fit your bonnet. My son and I choose to have a fixed scuttle and hinge the bonnet forward. You will need a foam strip to seal the gap between the bonnet and the sides.

  22. If you fit some threaded bar with 2-nuts and washers on the inside of the brackets. You can expand the gap to allow the wishbones to fit after removing the bar and nuts ect. Then clamp up when fitting the correct bolts.
