Hi,
I've been using a 13mm spanner on the nuts...
In that case, likely to be 5/16"UNF.

Bonnet bolt hinge size?

7/16" (11mm) spanner? If so, I'll guess they're 1/4" UNF

SST H993WGF

Trailing arms don't look good either - I'm guessing the front wishbones aren't too good either..

Brave restoration, or spares, me thinks :(

ss1 classic targa rally car

To be fair, I've not had a problem with the original one either (including both 1600 turbos) - just that it's not as much power as other ones (I'm comparing it to other OEM ones, Spal, Kenlowe etc). I'd hazard a guess it's somewhere in the 80-100W range, so a nominal 8A or so, running. It's certainl...

ss1 classic targa rally car

I wonder if the bulbs have been "uprated" to 100/80W bulbs? That'll blow the fuses - as will loose wiring around that area (such as the wires for the headlamp itself getting trapped around the frame mechanism when they move). Most off-the-shelf fans draw more than the original "hamster-gently-coughi...

Help! Drop links.

I did a rough search and it looks like that whilst the original threads are M12 but the E39 ones are M10. I think Helicoils can be used.

Festival of the Unexceptional

I see a previous winner was a Nissan Cherry Europe. I'm amazed that any still exist considering they were built in Italy by Alfa Romeo (i.e. Fiat) using recycled Russian steel. If ever a car was destined NOT to survive, that would be it. Also known as the Alfa Romeo Arna IIRC. Had a look on Wikiped...
