I've seen a different solution, a single spring loaded fastener at the centre, which is the same as those used at the front of the bonnet.  It works well.

#1: ...when refitting nose cone which order do you secure them...

I fit the lower ones first.

Re washers, tools etc, I bought a pair of stubby screwdrivers (like these, but not this brand) about 20 years ago.  (The Phillips one is for the front lower inboard screw on the pedal-box cover.)  They live happily together in the handbrake well.

Can't claim to have innovated it but it does work well. No feeling around on your knees ( in the rain) for the dzus fasteners. A one handed operation and no tools needed

Any chance of a photo of the ingenious ECR/bahf solution?  I think I understand but you know what they say about a photograph...
