In reply to # 1500494 by Fictioneer I'm thinking there has to be a simpler solution. Some sort of pivoting hinge mounted inboard. Perhaps on the rear portion of the original bracket where it is welded to the front bar. I've been going over some designs in my head,and I think I've figured something out, but you're right, Steve, the final version will have to be built and tested -- unless, I suppose, a computer program builds it virtually, but that requires certain skills I definitely lack, and software I don't own.
Actually, I'm thinking classic Cardboard Aided Design.
You would have to mock up the frame and the bonnet where the pivot takes place keeping in mind the nose needs to arc forward as it tilts.
