The thin side goes next to the bulkhead and when the bonnet is closed rotates towards the engine.

Ive just noticed you have a rubber seal across the bonnet/bulkhead .Is that standard for older defenders as my puma doesn't have one? ......... bloody good idea as mine gets full of sh*t!and its a rust trap! Anybody done this on their pumas?.Or alternatively is it standard and LR just forgot to put it on mine?

Do a search on eBay for Saab 900 bonnet seal. I took it off an old 900 and it fits perfectly, stops rattle, and reduces noise and it keeps Censored out! I also installed a self adhesive ā€œDā€ seal on the bonnet edge to keep more Censored out from the sides and front. Rolling with laughter

Second recommendation for a bonnet/bulkhead seal here, l used self adhesive D-seal and it made a noticeable reduction to noise levels particularly when the vent flaps are open.
