    I agree. Up at 4.30 am today. As you say best part of the day. Especially in summer when you can watch the sun come up. Lovely and quiet. Few cars on the road. hmmmm that reminds me. Time for my second cuppa.

    Shocking weather here today which is a great shame as I have a pal coming over today to help me bleed the brakes now that I have had the broken bleed nipple removed from a front calliper. Hopefully this will cure the soft brake pedal.
    Indie wanted to send the calliper away, local specialist did the job for a tenner!
    Nev/Stagnite just been browsing looking for something and I came across the above post. The photo you mention is the "before" one below where I changed the rusty bolts for stainless then repainted the lot.



    My question is this did you eventually remove or add the washers shown to adjust the bonnet height? Id like to see if it does anything on mine, but could be a good idea or waste of time trying?

    Thanks!

    Just to clarify I did repaint and restore the entire area, this was after first coat.. ..............

    Bonnet/Hood adjustment.

    Bonnet / hood adjustment. This is something I have not really tackled before in any serious way.

    Adjust any door or lid etc can be fraught with problems so my question is has anyone got the hang of doing it? No pun intended.

    I am assuming its the tiny legs on springs, one on each side for hight?

    Adjust the hinge for backwards/forward movements?

    Any tips etc?

    Thanks.
