    HI ALL. IVE JUST PUT A NEW BONNET ON MY R53 I NOTICED THAT AT PASSENGER SIDE IT IS PERFECT. BUT ON DRIVERS SIDE RIGHT AT THE SCUTTLE PANEL IT WAY LOWER THAN THE BODY ON THAT SIDE, I LIFTED THE BONNET WHEN BOLTS WERE SLACK AND ITS WORSE LOOKS LIKE IT NEEDS TO TIP FORWARD AT FRONT OF BONNET TO BRING THE BACK OF BONNET HIGHER, ANYONE ANY IDEA HOW TO FIX IT. I WAS WANDERING IF I NEED TO LIFT BONNET HINGE HIGHER AS NOTICED WHEN PUTTING BONNET ON HINGE ON PASSENGER SIDE WAS STIFF TO OPERATE AND STAYED UP YET DRIVERS WAS WOBBLEY OND SLCK AND KEPT FALLING DOWN.
