This blog is intended to document the build of my Gardner Douglas Mk4 Cobra; partly as IVA evidence, bit primarily to help others learn from my mistakes and/or successes.

I will endeavour to post as often as possible, with a view to entering a single post for a particular element of the build process, however inevitably some things may not be completed in one go. All posts will be tagged so it should be easy enough to find the information you seek.

Please subscribe to receive emailed updates and feel free to post any comments or questions which I will make my best efforts to respond to.

Fitting the bonnet

The bonnet fitment is much the same as the boot lid (see previous post), only slight easier as it can rest in place and you can do everything from below.

I did temporarily fit the 3 sealing strips around the engine bay return to get the right height. I added a washer to shim the whole bonnet right a bit as I did with the boot.

This is what the panel edges look like prior to filing... 

.... and after filing
