Looks like they have rusted away and someone has replaced them with a single bar.
I haven't checked the numbers, but you are probably right - it should be the same both sides.

Cheers,

Yeah, probably something like that. And if the were a little out of measure that could also explain why the bumper has dropped a little...

Any thoughts on modifying the hinge fastner anyone....?

If you grease the thread on the bolt well and soak everything in rust protection when you fit it, it shouldn't be so difficult to get off. The problem is 25 years without any protection - zinc plated bolts will develop a lot of rust in that time. If you use stainless bolts in addition to the protection, you should be safe.

But wouldn't it be better altogether flipping it round, one would have easier access for under the hood, there would be no need for rustprotection, and thus easier to remove for that reason too.  Wink

Had mine been fitted this way in the first plac, im pretty sure i would have no problem inscrewing them now, and probably would't have snapped them either.
