Petrol tank

Make sure it's the tank before removing as mine leaked from the sender pipes because of them being attached with the wrong clips ! This of course happens when the tank is over the point where the sender is fitted not with a low level just as yours did ,just a thought :D

Stuck bonnet and ignition

Make sure the catches are bolted in tight too as the movement sometimes can cause a opening problem

I'd take out the boot liner then you can see just about everything on both sides including the frame inner wing liners etc and compare sides ,it takes about an hour to remove it but well worth it for ease of restoration :wink:
