Thank you for the reference photo!

It was a bungee strap, not a wire!
What is the diameter?


In this case, it's attached to the bolt on the grill.
The hook under the bonnet badge is the same color as the body and looks great.
The bungees are usually all the same diameter about 10mm.
Its actually hooked under the overrides on the bumper, the red bit you can see is the hook on the end ,not the grille fastner.
Yes we fitted the hook just under the badge, using period images , and painted it the same colour as the bonnet stripe.
Thank you for the information!
