Repaired ends of the header rail on the Vitesse hood frame today. Just a little corrosion and not as bad as on some cars I have owned.
Should the short bars that come off each end of the header rail have some side to side movement, they are held on by heavy duty steel pressed studs/rivets.
I seem to remember these should have some movement but the ones on my car are seized solid, or pressed so they are solid, but then I think it would have been in one peice welded to
the header rail with no other joins if it was meant to be solid.
