Spider Bonnet Blues - RIPPED OFF AT SPEED!
Anybody had this before? Driving along at 60mph, and Spider bonnet suddenly rips off, breaking the windscreen, and breaking the bonnet on the hinges, and I'd only had the Spider for 2 weeks.... Argh!!!!
Got to admit I cannot remember actually pressing the bonnet shut after opening it to look for the battery (battery was flat). Of course I found it behind the seat, used jump leads from my SAAB, and it started 1st time. Then batter flat, enhine started, decided to drive to Gloucester, 10 miles to charge it. OK, all the way at 50mph, 90% of the way back, there's a short section of dual carriageway, 70mph limit, lets speed up a bit, and POW! bonnet flies off, crashes into windscreen and deposited itself on the grass verge.
So my question is, where is a good place to get a new bonnet. Insurace excess is £400, and my insurane NCED was as a named driver on my wife's policy, so I'd lose the entire NCD... I've got a friendly garage who will fiyt it for me, I just need the parts. Any hep would be appreciated, thanks
