    This is the much later hood frame design, it folds flat.

    Details/dimensions for this (and other ideas) are in Tech Tips

    Guess how far on I am with mine, yep no further on,
    Been stuck on the DIY and now got to somehow source a new key barrel for the ignition on my van, it picked a good time to lock up and now VW garages all on lock down.
    Keep safe everyone

    Follow this link, read the post from Ben, it gives the dimensions. Also look at pictures for an idea of the shape.
