Re: Dreaded Clio bonnet catch failure on my 172

Didn't mean to post twice but my first attempt at putting links didn't appear to work, perhaps it takes time to come up.
I had considered the possibility of pushing the hinges back down and on close examination the 'lift' of the bonnet is greater than any apparent bending of the hinge so I think you're right.
Covering rather than respraying is also a good idea, carbon fibre effect would I think be OK.

Thanks very much for your input and very prompt reply.
