Hi Roy,

 on my pic below the long peg is for the strap. It coincides with the fabic in the rear screen

Roy - I assume you have the straps fitted to your hood frame, as the strap extends backwards from the frame to fix over the long peg?

cheers

Note - this is as original. Note how the lift-the-dot fasteners at the bottom of the hood
are arranged to allow the hood to be 'ripped off' horixontally.

These are the long tenax over which the blank holes tank panel go over
and are held down by the carpet lift-the-dot fasteners.

Detail is a little different if you have a rear seat fitted.

A couple more original details for completeness.

Hi Roy,

 assuming I'm looking at the correct item the leather reinforcement is actually  a plastic pouch.

 

On mine  with the strap doubled over and the plastic pouch it causes a small bump of the hood fabric when it is all assembled.

I'm considering making the last 3" or so out of  a Stainless steel 1.5mm plate and the strap attached to that. It should reduce any bump.

I bought new pegs and lift the dots for my car years ago but found out they do not have "lift the dot" inscription in them. More reason to keep the old ones.

if i still had the these i would have kept them and known the answer to my questions but for some reason the web fixing dose not have the lift dot fixing on it and seems to have been fixed with the same plate as on the hod frame. I would like to get back to original to allow the new trim to fit.
