Went to the barn in Essex today. On a mission to free up the bonnet release thingy.
Managed to take off the front grille, sadly broke a little bit of it but not major.
The release mechanism was gunged up solid, much applications of WD40, cleaning, then more WD40 saw an operating bonnet release that was smoother and silkier than Barb Cartland Dogs ears. Bonnet release happiness lever 1000000000 achieved.
Battery on charge and will be fitted when fixerating and MOT date arranged with matey. Whoohoo.
This is a lovely wafter of a thing.
