Hi all. I'm new to this forum and have come across a major problem with assembling the bonnet parts (issues 75 to 77). The fixing holes are either in the wrong place or are missing. First off (issue 75), the holes to attach the bonnet catch are missing. Because of this I decided to glue the catch in place. Also, the holes to attach the right hand valance are in the wrong place - 2 of them line up but the third is about 25mm away. Next (issue 76), the holes to attach the stone guard are missing and the guard is actually bigger than the space into which it is supposed to fit. Next (issue 77), the holes to attach the front underpanel are missing.
Everything had been going so well up to this point. Can anyone please help or advise what to do.

That very much looks as if you have the bonnet part from the initial test run.
When the kit was properly released, the bonnet section was changed a fair bit.
The test bonnet will not work or fit on the kit.

Many thanks for this info. I'll contact customer services to get replacement parts.
