    Hi, Yes you're right. The area on the bonnet to take the studs is double skinned. So it's definitely going to be: drilling a hole, tapping a thread and gently screwing the bolts in. I'm not sure I have the nerve. I'm worried that screwing the bolt into the fiberglass could lift/splinter the gel coat/paint work.

    Before I screwed them in, I made a very slight countersink then just screwed them in by fingertip. They don't need to be tight as the small touch of silicon holds them nicely. As I said, mine have been in 10 years and not a problem.

    Your cobra looks great. Did you use M4 bolts?

    Stick the heads on. They look the same and you can change your mind later and take them off.

    Don't they fall off when the local Kosovans hit them with the jet wash at the £5 hand car wash?
