It's coming guys, hopefully in a month or two. I need to translate the CAD model into 2D engineering drawings and find some quality people to manufacture a batch.

I wouldn't mind having these also, as the bonnet doesn't open even remotely far enough!

There has been some progress on these. I have found a company to make them and am now looking at the design options.

It is possible to make them both wide opening and with Pip-pins so that the bonnet can be quick released and re-installed, maybe even single handed. Is that a feature people would be keen on, or is opening wide enough not to need the bonnet released except for major works?

Personally i would appreciate both the hinges and the pip pins as you always have situations where you need to take off the bonnet. But would also be pleased with one of both options

^^^^^^^^ What he said ^^^^^^^ but I am happy just to be able to open the bonnet and check the fluids without all the faffing around

Absolutely! I changed my washer bottle and pump yesterday - what a faff trying to remove the bottle due to the bonnet stopping it from lifting out of its slotted housing!

I'd be interested in a set of these with the pip pins. Good work.

Chris, I was also looking into getting the bonnet off quickly. There was a solution with quick release pins Steve dug up, but no follow-up on that. I believe he's still waiting for the delivery.

So, yeah, count me in on these pip-pins. Any ideas on keeping the bonnet in position when wide open? cannot view the pics right now for some reason.
