Subject: BE bonnet tie-downs
Ok, fonts of all knowledge spritewise, here's the deal-we are in
final body work stages of finishing the RHD project Bug eye, and are
installing the excellent front tilt bonnet hinges developed by David Hill,
and published on Gerard's garage website
(BTW, these appear to be very similar, if not identical to the new front
tilt kits offered by speedwell)
Anyway, It is time to drill holes for bonnet hold-downs or

Your input and /or Experience in this matter is appreciated.
