Restifier. The foam pieces are spacers for the package tray. If you look under the rear window seal you will find some flat spots where they fit. Small end of the wedge towards the window.

Here is his picture. Can anyone tell him what they are?
They are painted blue like the car was when I got it,so I think they were in the engine compartment,or doors,or trunk on my convertible.I have looked around and can't see any spot where they might go,they have a hole for a screw on one side of the almost 90 degree angle and a small curve at the end of the other angle.I sure would like to know if anyone can tell me what they are for.Thanks Ray for posting the picture.

Default The game continues

These parts are about four inches long. They flex some. As you can see they are a pair, not mirror image. I think they have something to do with the glovebox but I can't see how they fit. Anyone? Thanks.

I'm pretty sure they don't have anything to do with the glove box. I just took mine apart. I'll keep looking.

Just a wild guess, I have not come across these parts yet but I have not installed or checked the fender skirt system yet. So it could have something to do with the fender skirts?

regards
Ron

Do you have the original glove box door brackets. They have a tendency to break and maybe somebody used these as replacements. They're definitely not for the fender skirts.

Are they connectors for the seat track releases.
Just a guess.

Certainly to me they look like something that is seat-related.

I used them to pull the head liner tight in my hardtop. they hook to the front cross rod and the top of the window frame.
