Hopefully the extra vents should reduce the lifting at speed due to too much air getting in there :)

Thanks to Clive @ MRP for supplying and fitting this.  Still got to sort out locking pins for extra security bit it looks great!

You must be joking. That only gets cleaned once every 2 years. ;)

Problem wasn\'t so much around 70ph more \'on track\' speeds of 110+ were showing noticable lifting. :)

Small point,
the lifting of the bonnet is due to the air flowing over the top surface quicker than it flows underneath,this causes the air pressure to be lower ontop than under which lifts it at speed.This is a fundamental of aerodynamics.
Looks nice Iain.

Carl
