Default New shape bonnet pics.

Unless i've missed it, I don't think anyone's posted a pic of the new shape Saturn bonnet on a car.

Mine's in my build diary below if anyone wants a look.

EDIT: Here's a few more, now the stripes are on...

Best bit so far: Getting it running
Worst bit so far: Cutting steel for wishbones and engine mounts.
Most annoying bit so far: Generator packing up half way through welding.

That looks the muts nuts and the bonnet just sets it off. Do you know if it will fit over a 2.0 Pinto with EFI?

Best time to buy parts for your car is when they are available. If you wait, as I have, you may find out that they are no longer available and you will be kicking yourself.

Companies go out of business waiting for people to get around to ordering stuff.
