Hi,

I've just completed and tested a few modifications to help cooling, see:

I've also installed some gas struts for the bonnet, see:

Hope you find them helpful, all the best from Mexico.

Hi Marcus

Looks good what you have, but you should fix the hood struts upside down so that the seal is always in contact to the oil inside
The way you have them now will let them fail prematurely because the seal dries out and wears, letting the gas charge leak.

Safe travels

Hi Ozy,

Thank you for the feedback, someone else has told me that too. I will swap them around and update the website.

Thanks

Had those problems in a biscuit-factory with some safety guards...
