916 Spider hood
2016 and the New Year resolution is to put Jessica (the Vodafone Spider) back on the road before Spring arrives.
Pretty much everything is done except for a new battery but I do need to get the hood sorted. It's manual, not electric.
Firstly, I have had conflicting advice about raising the hood. Do you fasten the front or rear first?
Secondly, I have lost one of the rear retaining pegs and cannot find anywhere that supplies them or even what the part number is. Before being laid up, neither of the retaining pegs was holding for more than a few minutes so I was driving with the rear of the hood flapping about. Is it possible to replace whatever is in the holes that the pegs are supposed to clip onto? What are they called and where would I obtain them?
I have been tempted to just leave the hood down and drive open but that's not realistic in this country, especially as my garage is 1/4 mile from the house and I'm getting old and knackered.
Any help to keep what I think is a brilliant car on the road would be greatly appreciated.
