Manta Bonnet Rebuild + Bonnet Pins


Recommended Posts

I had 3 bonnets and decided to take the best one into be media blasted and epoxy primed. when I went to collect the guy told me it was in bad shape, bog and rust.

so I decided to take two bonnets and make one good one and get the bonnet pins lined up at the same time.

I was able to get the inner frame media blasted and epoxy primed before putting it back together, I also used 2k bonding along the seams to strengthen and seal

I am not a panel beater or a mechanic, but this is what I did in my shed.

There are other repair options for the Manta, I chose to do this one as it was the easiest one for me in NZ.

Everyone has an opinion on this subject, I am only posting this to share my experience after finding it very hard to find any decent information to give confidence at tackling such things.

Key Board Mechanics or Key Board Panel Beaters if you don't like what you see then please take the time to create your own thread and show us all how you did it with your own pics and ideas.
