Hi I saw the bonnet vents in the pics. Is that worth doing as I was thinking of doing it on my 6b?

I've just taken some pics to show you how the screen fits. I'm happy with it.

Well these ones certainly are! On the Essex they are right over the distributor, absolutely no chance of starting it if it's damp.
The diese in it now doesn't mind though.

Is it just me or does anyone else see these photos on this thread and a few others all upside down or is it my works PC doing it perhaps?

No it still happens for me too (when viewing some other people's posts). It's a problem that has been mentioned a few times in different threads and Ian reported in this thread here on Wednesday, that it was fixed, but it still seems to be happening?

Yep, upside down for me too. But, if I right-click on the picture and "open image in new tab" it appears OK.
As Roger says, this has been much discussed over the past few weeks.

It's not you Mike, it's on my PC as well. I thought Ian had done some sort of fix, but obviously didn't work.

Also (probably depends on browser/OS), right click on the image and select "view image" will show it the right way up, in your existing window/tab; use the back button to return to the thread.

Thanks Roger, but in Chrome, the "view image" option isn't available (at least, not on my laptop).
