Not sure about the whole bonnet but I believe nose cones are available, as are the lower chin sections. As it is these sections that normally get bashed, your best bet might be to get a second-hand, beaten up bonnet and just salvage the cheek sections and main fuselage (long bit) as these are often survive relatively unscathed. Take your bits to a car repairer who should be able to cut out battered nose cone & chin and replace with new.

One supplier a company called Dunlop did list both sel nose cones and chin pieces a few years back when I was looking. I found a good nose off a shorter tugmaster bonnet.

Bernie.

Send Madders (club shop) an email - I'm pretty sure the club shop can get parts mentioned above (ie nose cone, cheeks,chin and radiator access flap). There are other suppliers, but Madders is probably the best place to start.

As Bernis says, complete bonnets are rare (I saw a NOS one a week or two ago on eBay, but that's it) but it may be possible to get a half decent one from eBay etc and replace the damaged parts. A good body repairer should be able to get the main section back to near original shape.

You could try G & K Jarvis in Oxfordshire - he advertises in Classic Tractor.

I spoke to him last week when looking for a nose cone for my 880.
He told me that they stock repair sets of panels for bonnets including the nose cone but he wouldn't sell me just a nose cone on its own.
