Hi,

I need a couple of bushes where the bonnet hinges on the chassis, on a vixen S4. Has anyone got any ideas as to what they may be off or where I can find any.

cheers gra

If the S4 frame is the same as the S2 then bespoke TVR part. I purchased a new bonnet frame and hinge bushes from DG although I did have to cut a longer thread on the eye bolts to allow the bonnet to sit low enough.If it's only the eye bolts/bushes then you might be able to get them fabricated by a local engineering shop.

Ah, good news, I was going to ask about these too at some point. I hope to be on this section some time in the new year. Does the hinge come complete with the part that screws into the bonnet frame and the part that screws into the chassis?

Also I was hoping a quick release type fitting might be available.....

When I ordered the bonnet frame that's all I got. The hinge eye/bush bolts that screw into the frame is a separate part, as is the chassis mounted cradle that receives the hinge/bush.

With regards to the fabrication or eye bolts, this is not an issue. Simply purchase some spherical rod ends with the appropriate thread matching the thread in the frame

Or 2 pounds for rubber and 4 pounds for poly each.
