So, just for "grins" - - - I went out & looked on my 69 , hood latch brace . . . No rubber spacer.
and, here is why I say that . . . . . . I have a friend (local guy with a 69, that he is putting back on the road).
He comes by and looks over my spare parts - - - - I just gave him a center grille 'hood latch support brace
about two weeks ago . When I removed that support brace . . . . . . "I even said = Look with the
Rubber bumper , too " .
(I also told him - - - - that nothing else comes - off that front - end) .
I didn't even know that rubber bumper was there .
(may-be I should just stop giving away parts . . . . . . . . )
Or quit losing them in the garage like I do. I know I have this part somewhere in some box. I just replated the Clip that holds the rubber seal on the drivers side bulkhead, and was polishing it up on the buff wheel and it took off like a rocket. Landed somewhere in the garage.
