Post by mgcjag » Tue Oct 08, 2019 8:04 am

Hi All...one man bonnet removal and bonnet stand detailed here before but this combines the 2....you wouldn't need to remove the bumpers also on this clip the hinges have been removed from the bonnet.. far easier to just pull out the top hat pins

Excellent, made it look very easy - although at first I thought you were resting the nose on a piece of granite worktop!

Surely the whole point of pulling out the top hat pins is that you don't loose the alignment of the bonnet to the rest of the car. Doing it the way the video shows will result in a lot of f**ting around trying to get the bonnet to shut again.

Is there another video showing how to refit it?
