I've had mine now laying on the shelf for a few years, and nows the time to get them fitted. 

What do people do with the brake pipe union where it goes through the tub. 

Also what about the side repeater ?

Thanks in advance.

The picture is not mine but I like the curve so the rear catches could be fitted and mesh finish it.

On my car I'm going to flair GRP sides. I've move my side repeaters to the cycle wings (small led types)

As above but some have indicators on the side of the scuttle!

I moved my indicators to the flared wing, so really I left them in the same place.

Mine. Don't have a brake pipe union near the tub, and also don't run side repeaters, don't see the point as MOT never look for them.  I cut mine at an angle to follow the line of the bonnet/scuttle.

Also if you look at my build diary, Page 9, you can see how I fitted them and used a cardboard template to get a nice hole for the exhaust manifold

Hi, just had a very quick look at your build diary,

your dash switches with the bright faces showing what each one is, can you tell me where to buy some,

thanks.

The best way imo. How do you latch the bonnet at the back? Thanks.

Bull nose at the front and aero catches at the back

Or cut it a little short and keep the original catches
