The Bonnet fits

With the body sat in the garden I couldn't see how the bonnet was every going to fit. After trimming the edges following advice from the forums it still didn't sit right. So, contrary to the manual I did not fit the bonnet before putting the body on the chassis. I know I will probably have to remove it again, but having the body sitting straight (something that wasn't possible in the garden!) allows me to position the bonnet in the right place - just hope I can get an arm up to mark the position of the bolt holes... Apologies for the bad reflection from the carport roof:

Next is the seat belt mod as the way Pilgrim designed the top seat belt mount (embedded in the GRP body) isn't strong enough and can be an IVA failure.
