As I'm sure you know, the dogbone is in the wrong place. It should connect the top two 12 pin sockets.

I have made bonnets for customers in the past but a bit busy to do any right now but what I do have are a couple of correctly dimensioned centre hinges - I had a batch made ages ago.  I think there might be a bit of surface rust but easy to clean up.  I can let you have one if you are up for fabricating your own bonnet. The bonnets are relatively straightforward to have made up as long as you remember to leave a little spare steel on the front corners to follow the line of the top of the radiator cowl because of the slight downward slope of the whole bonnet rear to front. I think I even saw the template for the shape of the cutout that goes around the radiator cap on a shelf in the workshop yesterday and I can easily draw around that, scan it and email it to you.  The brackets that the side panels hang on are simply a slighty curved rectangle with a slot; these are riveted to the bonnet.
