  3. Position of the hood / bonnet buffer wedges on a TR6

    I am restoring my 1974 TR6 and need some help finding how to position the 4 buffer wedges for the bonnet / hood. I have the holes pre-drilled on the top of fender but the buffers are not.

    Pictures displayed on the blog would help, not as a link as they are sometimes difficult to open or require q subscription.
