Hi all.

 

I have a Mk2 Cooper 's' in at the moment and need to replace the diagonal front panel support brace as the wrong one was fitted.

 

I have a picture of where it should go but I'm not convinced I have mine in the correct position as it doesn't look right.

 

Here is what was fitted

Here is what I am fitting in the position that relates to the points in the picture

And here is the picture I have

If someone would be so kind as to measure the angle of the support for me and it's position in relation to the centre of the front panel, I would be most grateful.

 

Many thanks

 

Ben

That's great Paul.

 

It shows it more upright than I have yours mocked up which is how i thought it should be.

 

The picture I have above shows the support running in line with one of the grille mounting holes which is where I mocked yours up to and it just doesn't look right.

 

I can get it welded in now!
