Trying to fit my aftermarket bonnet, i have aerocatches but wanted to use the original latch/catch as well.

My problem is the original latch seems to be welded to the bonnet? How have other people done this please? :)

Got any pictures of each bonnet. Where the catch sits and how. Will then be able to advise. I know a good friend of mine has a carbon bonnet and fitted his catch too it as well as aeros but can't remember how.

Are you saying the new bonnet has no latch on it for the standard bonnet lock to hook onto? You'd have to bond one onto it, but I can't see it being all that strong if the bonnet hasn't been constructed around it. That's exactly why the latch on it's own isn't always enough to hold the bonnet down and people use catches instead. If that bothers you I'll honestly have it off you, I don't even mind paying you a bit over what you paid since I can't find any others. :)

Hows it going Ben? How is your old bonnet looking?
