Another trick for new players with Inters and I suppose Dodges that have the same sheetmetal, is that as you close the bonnet YOU MUST hold the bonnet latch to the right as you push the bonnet home, or you WILL damage the bonnet or hinges.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

If the hinges make the bonnet out of line as it closes,it must be pushed down at the back to line up properly............unfortunately,about the worst thing can happen in an Inter is trying to see through sheet metal at 60mph.............IMHO,two front side catches are absolutely essential,and just about every ex government truck had them fitted.......and if the bonnet tends to ride up at the rear,then fit two more spring side catches there as well........there is no overkill when the bonnet flies up as you are driving.

Thanks John K, Mobile 1 is a 2000 litre tanker still operational as private support to CFA and turn outs are often at a pace so will take onboard your advise, Regards John.

Hi All, Can anyone advise the material the grille is made of also the best adhesive that will adhere to it as I need to repair it on the D1510 tipper I just purchased as I started today on her restoration.

Hopefully yours is the fibre glass one. Buy a fibre glass repair kit that has both resin, hardener and matting. Follow the instructions acurately. Preparation is key to a solid repair.

Thanks Hayseed, Your are right ,it's strange sort of material , If you look at Mobile 1 photo on my ID that's the one, On my 1510 a couple of bars are broken and missing so I want to try and repair it and even pick up a broken grille to use as bits but unsure what will adhere to it. John.
