Continuing with the side panel by bonding in the bonnet locating block

And then trial fitted it all when cured

Dreaded this moment a bit, but it's now time to fit some AeroCatches to replace the old bonnet locks.  Decided against the lower position which would have covered up the two holes left by the old lock, but would have also mean some extensive cutting away of the bonnet locating blocks.

Used Everbuild Stixall to bond it in.

Fabricated a bracket from an old metal T plate and managed to position it such that it clears the side panel and sits on a metal plate underneath the bodywork.  Did have to remove the VIN plate, but found a nice new location for that already.

Used some vinyl wrap to tidy up the are where the bonnet fixing bracket sits and the side panel part that is covered by the detachable side panel.

Using the laser level and a template from when the exhaust headers were fitted, I cut a hole in the side panel, just about big enough for the headers to pass through.  Still need to enlarge it though as I can't remove the panel with the headers fitted.  To be continued next month ;)
