Useful tool for fitting a hood press stud
Richard Wood posted a useful tip on the V8BB on hood studs. (Apr 11)

Just a useful tip, if like me you need a new hood "press stud". The hood and also tonneau fasteners for the RV8 are called Durable Dots and are available in chrome or black.

I have no commercial connections with the following companies but they both provided the parts within 48 hours:

Segal Motor Trimmings who stock the Durable Dots and backings in bags of ten in chrome or black.

Moss Europe supplies the Durable Dot Tool Set (GAC5060X) - this tool is required to fix the two parts of the fastener together. Moss webpage
