Chasing a bonnet latch for Tiago's 2+2 in Portugal.
There are not a lot of spare parts for Datsuns in Europe so hoping someone can help out.
I'll hand carry the item if I can get it.
PM me with price if you can help out.

Just an FYI but I believe LHD and RHD latches are different. Might be better off searching eBay US for a LHD latch?

I suspect routing of the pull cable to the lock from the left side would result in a mirror image to the RHD version ?

Yes. Correct.
It's just a matter of taking the pivot pin out, reversing the catch and putting the pivot pin back in or making a new pivot.
I'm happy to do this or take a local one and modify it.
