Looks exactly like mine did under the tray mate, ended up putting the full repair panel in. The grommet is not sold on its own, I was lucky to get one from a scrapper

This looks like it could be epic. Similar to the superb resto by rommey32 on his mk2 rst. Are you intending to clean all the dirt from the engine bay - nothing like a pristine begin ebay.

Are those remote control speedboats on the shelf?
