Bonnet Chafing

The bonnet does seem to chafe against the bodywork, resulting in some small, but unsightly patches of bare aluminium.

I ordered some more self adhesive foam from Caterham and put some additional strips on the underside of the bonnet and on the “shut points” to keep this under control. I also put a couple of bits behind the springs on the front bonnet catches which were also marking the bodywork.
