I am in search of an original early E-Type bonnet with welded louvers & flanges. Recently I discovered that the bonnet on my car was replaced with one from a later model. That bonnet was damaged a while ago and I was just getting around to repairing it when I found out that it was a replacement.
I am aware that it will be difficult and expensive to find and restore an early bonnet, (I have spoke with Chuck at Monocoque Metal Works!. ) That said, Chuck is so backlogged that I have some time to find one. If any one knows of one that may be available, or has any leads whatsoever I would be very grateful. Thanks.
(I am aware of one currently available in the UK on eBay but between what he is asking, the unknown condition and the shipping, it seems too risky.)
