a rough guide


The locks were not too bad to fit, once you manage to get some sort of centre line on the bonnet and boot, which to be honest is tricky as the mold is a few mm off, pretty much from whereveer you try and measure... but after measuring from every rounded corner and cut out, you do narrow it down.

The boot lock was fairly successfully fitted, although I need to remove and tidy up the edges with a little filler and round off the corners.


I did have to climb in the boot with a small torch to mark where to fit the striker.


Bonnet was ok too, and now just have to fit small angles of StainlessSteel for the locks to catch on to, as per instructions.

FYI: Bonnet locks are straight, just fish eye camera makes them look odd :)
