Then after sitting in my garage about a week, and debating the merits of fixing the rust in the bonnet (whilst it was leaning up against the car) Mrs and I heard what sounded like a bomb going off. 

Took ages to figure out wtf it was - exploded tyre o'clock. It made the bonnet decision pretty easy.

now I have some panel steel for the rust patches I need to make!!

but seriously - anyone got a spare bonnet around ?- this early shape is fuckin hard to find; so will likely need to import from 'straya
