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. Not sure if you need to have it aligned with the top of fender or resting on the base of the bottom lip. Also which side of the wedge is facing the fender.
Pictures displayed on the forum would help, not as a link as they are sometimes difficult to open or require a subscription.
Thanks a lot

The flat side, not the sloping side, rest against the fender.
As far as vertical placement, there's not much space available. Just place them as high or as low within that space as need be to be functional...reducing (or eliminating 'ha') side to side movement of the bonnet when closed.

Ok, thank you for that. There is about 3/8 " distance to spare up or down. I might wait until I am ready to reinstall the hood after the engine is back in place.
