I've posted a photo of my bonnet stay arrangement on the Tribute section. Standard struts for an assisted lift then locate the bonnet stay.
Thanks LLM,

The plan is definitely to taper the light recesses, very much part of the original car look....I will be hoping to get into that in the coming weeks.

On the coming weeks, I am registered to be down at the Brit and Euro car show in Lloyd Elsmore Park in Auckland. Sunday March 1st....look it up online, a fantastic free event. I will be trailering the car down to the show but I need it to tap into the energy that comes with talking cars to get me across the line and on the road!
