Hi all,

Has anyone placed any rubber trim on the leading and trailing edges of their Cat bonnets that they recommend? I've seen a few pics online of cars which have gone down this route to protect the bonnet (and to even up some panel gaps!).

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Ed

Hi Ed

My Cat has a rubber 'P' trim along the rear edge of the nose cone and along the front edge of the scuttle which the bonnet sits in quite neatly and as you say helps with the shut lines. See photo below ( sorry about the quality of the photo,but it's the only one I could find)

Hi Scott,

Thanks for this. I've got some P-trim on my nosecone and scuttle panel - I was thinking more along the lines of Kerrsco22's car (the Supercat on the for sale page) though.

Cheers
Ed

Hi Ed,

Adding strip to the leading and trailing edges of the bonnet certainly neatens the shut lines and protects the material when removing/standing the bonnet - and hides chips & scuffs that may have occurred when doing so previously.

I used Woolies (www.woolies-trim.co.uk) R100 rubber extrusion for mine. I originally tried the PVC edge trim (Woolies 267-BLK) which I have around the carb intake cut out & front mudguards but it appeared too bulky being thicker and deeper (c. 14mm compared with c. 10mm for the R100).

If you do order from Woolies be aware that there is usually a post & carriage charge of over £6 so it's worth getting a whole bunch of stuff in one order.

Michael.

Michael,

That's perfect - many thanks.

I'm going to re-do the rear light clusters while I'm at it (the previous owner used silicon to seal the GRP light blocks to the rear wheel arches [frown]) - I'm thinking R181 (unless you can suggest anything else?).

Cheers
Ed

Haven't had to address the light cluster so can't speak from experience I'm afraid Ed but R181 seems about the right size & profile to me.

Michael.
