1. Safety hooks on the bonnet are body colour.

2. Rubber split bonnet rubbers are fastened on by split rivets with washers 
under the head going outboard with heads inboard, through the longer half of 
the rubber, through the shroud flange, the ends then being spread flat. The 
easiest way to do this is to begin with the rubbers turned completely upside 
down, installing the rivet and spreading it flat, then carefully turning the 
rubber around to right side up, making sure the outer half is eased into the 
shroud flange trough.
