When I started my 69 rebuild all rubbers were missing along with many other things, now complete I never found where these stops belong? Help!  Tkx Jim

Top of the fender, to guide the hood.

You will find some rectangular slots in the fender lip (under the hood) which accept the tab on that rubber part...
I think there is only one on each fender lip..

That is because the repros do not fit that well.  they are stiffer than originals and cause the hood to bulge up in the center.  On my repros, I had to enlarge the center hole as well as do a lot of trimming to get it to work correctly!
