"Changing the bonnet will be quite expensive Barry. Unless that is the look that you want"
Yep I want the C look but any C bonnet that's available comes at a premium (although there was an alloy one on the MG parts site for $1500 a couple of weeks back but I want steel) so my guru starts making one for me tomorrow - he reckons maybe $500 so that's not too bad, Thanks for the other vacuum etc suggestions which I'll keep in mind.
