Mk1 Cortina part install question

Post by 1970 cortina GT » Sun Nov 03, 2019 8:10 pm

Just ordered and received part # T42 from owners club, includes some small metal clips. Parts are the cardboard looking triangular wind deflector pieces that slot down either side of the radiator. Anyone have a picture of exactly how they install? Thanks.

I've replicated ones out of plastic. The top is held in place under the lip of the metal brace panel without using any clips.

Looks like a good fit. Since found out exactly where the clips go on the originals. Wondered why the old ones didn’t stay in place, had no clips before.
