Hi Enric,
Dave Rutherford tried a GRP bonnet some years back, without success.
If you get a short inlet manifold and stubby trumpets, you might find it will fit under the bonnet.
Talk to Helen Thorne (at Richard Thorne's), she races a 1964 4/4 with twin carbs and I am sure she has the standard bonnet.
Otherwise Vintage sheetmetal will add an intake for you in steel/ally to your bonnet or supply you one to cut-in/rivet etc.
Cheers
Mike

Hi Enric

The short Inlet manifold, Twin Webbers and Stubby trumpets will fit under the standard bonnet of a 4/4. We ran Millie our 4/4 like that for a few years. However Jane says that the bonnet scoop is a good idea as the Marshals can extinguish the fire easier if there is a hole in the bonnet :oops:

Regards
