After one bonnet hinge spring .. mine snapped .. never gad this happen before so all i can think is when it was replated it was weakened in some way.
Any way happy to pay for it just not the stupid silly prices they are asking on ebay.

cheers

hi Rob, did you get a spring? i have a couple here you can have for $30 (inc postage) if you want, or did you manage to get your hands on one?

Hydrogen embrittlement is the culprit for springs breaking. All chrome platers ‘should’ know this & either not plate a spring or treat it afterwards to resolve the problem.
