Hello all,

Sometimes on my travels in the Augusta, I have to park at public parking spaces. Therefore, I would like to be able to lock the bonnet.

Most probably in this forum some years ago, I have seen a picture of an Augusta bonnet clip which has a neat locking arrangment incorporated. I wonder if one of the readers out there can reproduce the picture and details of it. Otherwise, any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Regards  Karl

For something hidden, could you push a pin though the foot board into a receiver in the bonnet side?

The other place to hide a lock or mechanism is under the wheel arch.

Many thanks for suggestions. From small blocks of aluminium, I made 2 parts which can accommodate a "lock blocking key" of only 6mm diameter.

I didn't wanted any changes to the bonnet, so that the original part can be reinstalled in a few minutes.

Of course, the locks are only installed when there is a risk of people meddling with the car.

Regards

Karl

I must say that's an absolute work of art...really well done...

Where did the lock come from?

Super job Karl.
I do like to see and hear about projects like this.

It reminds me - I could do with an Augusta bonnet handle to replace one of mine which is wrong and doesn't match the others. Has anyone got one which I could buy?

Hello all,

Well, it's made by hacksaw, drill press, and hand filing small slots. Coarse shape done by belt sander, then refining by orbital sander to a very fine 3000 grit and finishing with polishing paste.

The back plate is from a 2mm sheet attached by 4 ea. M3 coutersunk screws.

The lock is from German company Burg-Wachter, in the UK: http://www.burg-wachter.co.uk/

Regards  Karl

I am sorry, there is a typo, it should read: "Coarse shaping done by belt sander..etc"

It's not a typo, it's the site censoring a certain word being typed - *rse. Don't worry, all regular users of the site understand what 'cobottom' is supposed to mean! That's a beautiful piece of work by the way. Would never guess it was home made.

Hack saw, belt sander, random orbit sander, hand file the slots...a lesson in what CAN be done with basic tools.

On one of the university open days this summer a couple of the technicians were grinding their teeth over all the students leaping at "I'll just 3D print it" for everything, and how they'd campaigned to get marks schemes altered for inappropriate materials and processes.

Beautiful indeed ! We've had censored words for a while and I think this one can come out as we don't really get many problems - we can now say coarse Smiley

Thanks all,

I have not been aware of censoring, this does explain it.

Regarding 3D printers, I think I won't be able to programm one!

That truly is a wonderful piece of work, an inspiration and, as David says, it does show what can be done with basic tools!
I am not at all skilled and I am sure would need several attempts to achieve such a result. However, that would still be quicker than me attempting to use a computer and a 3D printer!!!!
