Two Approaches to the Easy Up Hood Stay

While making my own version of the Talk Morgan Hood Stay the old grey matter stated to stir.

What could someone do without the wherewithall to carve and shape ally bar. Use an old 1/2" Spanner and Nut and a couple of new bolts and washer..

I did not use the nut because I could not find one in my junk box.

No. Its not April 1st just yet coffee

By the way, I ended up making 10 of the proper ones and donated over £400.00 to Combat Stress from the kind donations. happy3

Was going to suggest no imperial spanners were harmed in the execution of this exercise but that wouldn't be true would it innocent

Very inventive solution though thumbs

A very good reason to keep old tools. You never know when they will provide a solution.

Very good idea! But I‘ve got more alloy than old tools ;-)
