Hi all, im having dramas alining bonnet from left to right. It has about 2mm gap one side and 8mm the other. Ive adjusted the bonnet to hinge bolts across to their limits. Any ideas?

Put the bonnet up and give it a few spirited pushes towards the side with the larger gap. Don't be shy.
Put it down and check, repeat if necessary.

As per above, also worn bonnet hinges will not be helping if they are sloppy.

I swapped my bonnet hinges with new alloy with bearings instead of rivets. Massive difference in alignment and pulled everything back to centre of adjustment slots.
