That was my quick fix to stop the bonnet going open while it was in the back of the lorry. The catch is there but it's hanging loose.

She need allot of work. To do's spotted so far:

New grill
Bonnet release cable
Front and rear bumper repairing or replace
NSF fog light replace
Disco and pads all round
New battery
Get engine running
Remove aftermarket alarm
Dash need sorting
Slight bit of that in sills
Laquer peak here and there
Front windscreen
Rear spoiler needs sorting out
There will be more as I get into it.
Refurb second set of wheels I've got for it.
