Hi all

Once you’ve tinkered with the engine and flip the nosecone back into position, do you fasten that down or do you just let the clamping action of the bonnet keep it down.. hope that made sense?!!

I have the nose cone on a hinge at the bottom under the rad and have brackets popped on the side rails with bolts ( heads colour coded ) through the nose sides close to where it meets the bonnet,I either squeeze the nose to fit or turn the headlights to clear.

Thanks mate. Couldn’t take a photo when you’ve got a spare minute could you? I think I understand but would be nice to see. I’ve just repositioned my headlights outwards 25mm each side so I don’t have to squeeze the nosecone as much to flip back into position. Mines hinged under the rad too... had to sort and reposition all that.

Evening Abe,

The solution as per my Cat is the use of Dzus fasteners and one-off shaped brackets bolted to the headlamp bracket.

I'm not saying it's the most elegant solution - and I'm thankful for the amount of 'flex' in the nosecone to line up the fixings - but it's an option if you feel the need for a 'belt & braces' approach.

Michael.

Mine is bolted at the bottom by the rad and just held down by the bonnet

Mine has an L shaped bracket on each side of the chassis with riv nuts and when I push the nose cone past the headlights it lifts over the brackets and is secured with a dome headed hex bolt, very secure
