To solve the problem, I have replaced the lower fixing point with an m5 stainless steel ball joint.

Which means it can swing across and be clipped on a bracket fixed to the side bonnet.

The bracket for the bonnet stay clip was a bit of a challenge.

Moving on, I've been fitting the numerous bolts in the front wing (I think there are 15 or so) which takes some ingenious yoga positions to reach some of the nuts and bolts.

Then I can wire up the front lights. More on that next week.
Stay safe everyone....
Very nice indeed
