    Can any one explain to me how a 3 piece bonnet works .
    What stops the whole thing rolling off the car when you open one side.

    Should or could be a bolt in the centre of the hinge that bolts onto the brace between the bulkhead and the radiator, assuming a Ruby model?


    I’m clueless too.

    Bit of an old posting but might help others. Assuming it is a Ruby bonnet, fitted at three points by the centre hinge rod to a bracket at the radiator end mounted on the centre cross piece, in the middle by a special bolt through which the hinge rod passes and another bracket at the scuttle end.
    Ideally needs two people to lift off and refit as it is easy to damage paint and needs to be fitted carefully to get a proper fitting around scuttle and Radiator cowl.
