I have been waiting for Geoffs rebuilt engine to arrive so I could proceed with his build , but its going to be another 2-3 weeks apparently ....so I made the decision to do a bit whilst I wait ...

I have widened the bonnet , I cut it in half placing both halves where they needed to be and pinched the nose in slightly as I wanted to keep the 'face' from looking too wide ...These two halves were then tagged together by glassing a couple of token areas on the outside to hold them together .... when cured , the bonnet was removed and flipped over and strapped to ensure minimal movement ..I then glassed the whole cut on the inside. .finally . .a liberal coating of hairy filler was applied to the outside to level it up and add strength ...



I had already fitted the Lotus radiator into a bolt on bracket and I added the framework for the flip front to this ...extra tube and bracing this time as its a larger panel than normal ...
