    My RR has never been in any form of accident and so the bonnet has never needed any work on it till now.


    But when I started to set it up to adjust the brackets, I found the two bolts that hold the bonnet itself, to the brackets were anything but tight, and this was on both sides.


    The nuts holding the brackets to the body were as tight as you would expect, but the other two bolts, on both sides were not.


    It might be worth checking the bolt on your bonnet brackets and see if they are not so much as being loose, but need to be tightened up.


    Again, my bonnet is now easier to open and close than it has ever been, so something was not right?
    I'll check mine, but considering your vehicle's history it might just be a peculiarity of your 'special' car- not so much a Friday car as a Friday the 13th car!

    Most likely so considering more is now working properly on my RR than when I drove it out of the showroom.

    I'll take it off your hands, and all you'll need to pay me is $500. Bargain !
