Re: bonnet mounted spare on Series IIa
I suppose you do want a bonnet mounted spare to be secure, but my roof
mounted spare is attached by a single bracket that clamps round the roofrack
and secures by one nut only, It stays where it is as well, Tea leaves can't
be bothered to climb onto the roof to nick it.
I would think a hefty plate underneath the bonnet and bolts would do as well
as anything official.
