Aero latches

This is the section to see what is hidding behind those panels, and how to get rid of the tin worm, cutting out and welding in fresh metal, protection and paint.

Aero latches

Postby nedski » Sun Mar 01, 2015 8:31 pm

My lad George was fitting these today to his car, so I sneaked a few photo's along the way to show the progress.

Firstly take some time to work out where they are going to fit, and if the bonnet webbing and front slam panel make it a suitable place.

Image

Fit the pins and dab some paint on the tops to mark the exact place under the bonnet where they will come through by lowering the bonnet onto the paint.
Image

Drill through the bonnet :eek:

Image

The tape is to protect the bonnet and to draw around the latch.

Image

Image

Get the cutter and grinders out. Dremel works well

Image

Image

Image

They fit in and just need a little tidy around the edge.

Image

finished look. :handgestures-thumbup: Like it. :-D
