Re: Replacement Hood "How to"

Would be a good buy for the hood frame but I dont know of any Bs that have had problems with the hood frame rusting out.

It could be a punt for the rubbers but looking at the hood condition I dont think I would.

Re: Replacement Hood "How to"

The two cables that run allong the side of the roof and an allen grub screw tightens them in place.

I can't remember how they attach to the front of the roof can anyone remind me as one needs replaced. I had a look for the owner the other day and the passenger one has split in the middle.

Alan The front of the wire boden cable is formed into a small loop that affixes to a small hook that's pressed in the front header bar.
Thanks Alan.D thanked for this post
