AH BJ8 hood frame spring where I got hooked

I have recently been reviewing the frame of the hood of my car, I realized that I had not the long springs, I bought them and my surprise was that when I went to install it I realized that I have no accommodation where to insert the spring. I guess that it was covered in some old restoration.
Any of you know if the last series of the MKIII BJ8 furnishing these frame springs ? and in that case, what should be the position and diameter of the hole where it fits in spring.

There was a tab welded to the edge of the sill that puts the spring roughly parallel to the shut pillar. I never put mine back with no problem raising or lowering the top.

Thank you both for your help.
The photo has given me clear the location, I thought I would set on the side.
