Spitfire Hood cover . Save some dosh!

Hi all 

Today I recovered a Spitfire hood on Abbie Johnson’s 1979 1500. The hood was from a parts car and was repaired with new windows by a Chandler who deal with Perspex windows for boats . It needed a lot of scrubbing and some solvents to remove the old glue but it has come up really well with a bit of boot polish and some gentle warming with a het gun to stretch it over the frame . It is a Moss hood and fits like a glove . The only problems encountered were getting enough of the old glue off and realigning the old header rail with the replacement hood .
