    Ram bonnet hinge mod

    Does anyone have details (pictures, drawings etc.) of mod they have made to improve the bonnet hinge geometry? I've started to tear the car down for various jobs and sorting out the bonnet is one of them.
    Cheers

    Hi Myles,
    I don't know anyone else that has bothered except me. I don't have any drawings but sure I can find some pictures if I have a check. In essence, all you need to do is move the hinge point forward to increase the radius of the arc that the front edge of the bonnet travels as it opens. All I did was relocate the hinge from behind the front cross member to in front of it - moves the hinge point 3 or 4 inches forward. Then remanufacture the hinge arms to clear the front panel when fully open. Easy for a man of your calibre.

    That's what I had in mind. Pictures would be useful but don't go to a lot of trouble.

    Merry Xmas.
