BOOT, BOOTLOCK AND HINGES

BOOT, BOOTLOCK AND HINGES

The Libra has a good size boot located at the back of the car above the exhaust system. This boot has an external lid to allow easy access. The boot is lockable from the outside and has its own hinging and support stay mechanism. The boot is large enough to accept a full size set of golf clubs.

BONNET AND FRONT SPLITTER MOULD

BONNET AND FRONT SPLITTER MOULD

The bonnet of the Libra pivots forward to allow access to the radiator fan, battery and spare wheel. When it is shut it is fixed in position by five fasteners. These fasteners hold the bonnet rigidly to the tub and prevent any movement. A front splitter mould is fitted to the front edge of the bonnet in front of the radiator.

BEAM END COVERS

BEAM END COVERS

Beam end covers are used at the rear of the sills to cover the mountings for the rearward facing wishbones. These covers are non structural.

Beam End Covers Assembly

Drill two clearance holes Ø 7mm through the two ends of the rebated face of the beam end covers. Place the covers onto the ends of the sills and mark the position of the holes previously drilled. Drill out these marks with a tapping side drill for the self tapping screw. Attach the covers with two self tapping screws.
