    Bonnet bump stops

    Hi guys

    Ive seen a few pics where around the bonnet lip there are rubber buttons

    Just wondering which ones you used and where you got them from.

    Thanks

    You can easily find different sizes on eBay.
    So cheap it makes sense to try them out.

    I see a problem with the above comments, you will be creating a gap between bonnet, and body, this will allow water to flood in,
    I used a conventional rubber strip made for the job, its like a rubber tube, with a flat area to stick it on to the body, mine is about 10 mi. deep, but check you own gap, and is continues all around the bonnet, use rubber around 2 mil. bigger so It seals on closing, also it gives you a much better feel when closing.

    Water not to get in is a good idea, same time the rubber buttons allows a bit of breathing on a hot under bonnet,
    Either/or really.

    Scoop, and side exit panels give adequate cooling, I run a Ford 351 Windsor in my Roadcraft, 50 % distilled water, 50% antifreeze, and have not topped up in three years, and it is as clear as the day I put it in, I have a large expansion tank supplied by GD, and until I fitted it I had to top up quite often.
