:) > Hood Closer Tip <

As previously mentioned there were originally factory rubber mushroom bumpers,
good once the hood is closed.

Below are a couple methods I use,


Image

The lay in place rubber bumper , and sometimes I will wedge the rubber IH mats you can see under the
red shop rag and close the hood they stay in place while driving to not only protect the paint but add a bit of connivence
for quick hood openings, and nice fender protectors as your leaning into it and laying tools on the fenders.
In the photo for front is a 1/2 thick piece of felt, makes for nice bumper welts when the hood is closed.

You said early in this thread that you had replaced window rubbers and felts. Were you able to buy them somewhere??

I got all my IH parts from two sources , one being Pappy Vance out of Mo , he has passed
also Outback parts in Washington state. This was many year ago for all rubber and felts,
Felts were for the door windows that includes glides.
Outback likely is a good bet for excellent service in my experience.
