Can you identify this part?
« on: October 25, 2017, 12:36:08 PM »
  I'm finally done assembling my car after a 6 year restoration. As sometimes is the case after assembling, a part is left over. I just can't figure out where this goes. It was in a bag that somehow didn't get labeled.  :-[
Can anyone identify this rubber piece? It's from a 67 convertible w/manual transmission. The odd shape (front labeled image) looks like it was from compression.

Thanks!

It's the rubber bumper for the top middle of the windshield frame.  It gets installed on the windshield frame before the chrome header moldings are installed, and provides support for them.

I think you can remove the rear view mirror assembly and put that piece into position.  My memory is fuzzy, but I think I forgot this on my car, and put it in place after the fact.  What I can't remember is if I was able to get to the screw, or if I installed it with a little bit of adhesive.  I'm pretty sure the screw is not accessible after the fact.

I seem to remember putting the rearview mirror boot/visor clip in place, seeing a gap between the boot and the header molding, then having an "oh, sh*t" moment as I remembered that rubber block.
