Bonnet gap >>>> ran out of adjustment
I have ran out of adjustment and its still not a 10mm panel gap,
I knew I wanted to adjust the bumper up by around 20mm to leave the 10mm gap so I removed the bumper and measured where the inner adjustment hex bolt was to the floor and then just screwed it out another 20 mm same other side, goes to match the bumper back to the bumper brackets and the overall height of the bumper iron with the inner hex screw is to tall for it to go back into the receiving bracket attached to the bumper ???? ends up screwing it back as needed so the one fits the other and puts bumper back on
its better but no where near what I was after in pic it shows you perfectly I have a drooping middle ???? its 10mm on outer edges but 22mm around the Alfa grille area, I can push down on bonnet in the middle and it is a nice tight fit, adjustment is needed in middle area but there is no adjustment for middle ??
I adjusted the bonnet spring pins attached to bonnet and they are adjusted to there max so bonnet still opens on the pull anything further even quarter turn and its an inoperative pull lever
so I have no adjustment left on bumper irons and I have no adjustment on bonnet spring pins how do I get this even neat tight 10mm all across
