Default 29 coupe body wood - last piece

Today I finally figured out the 29 standard coupe body wood 'Jigsaw Puzzle' where everything goes.

EXCEPT for the last 2 pieces.



I've looked at photos, searched the service bulletin book to no avail.

Where do they go?

I'm hoping to get the wood finished this weekend.

Thanks for the assistance!!

Those go on the quarter lock pillars. What has you scratching your head is they were originally manufactured out of rubber -and not wood.

OK< thank you.

Now to further show my ignorance on the subject.

WTF is a 'quarter lock pillar' ?

on the bottom of the "C" shaped wood that goes around the side windows?

They look like they could go there.

Turns out I am not as far along with the body wood as I thought.

It appears that the fittment for the wood is too large for the side windows.

There is about a 3/8" air gap on both pieces that I have to figure out fitttment.

Should I cut the "C" and remove a section out of the center? I know these need to fit better than they are.



Suggestions?

Hallelujah.

I went looking back over some old data I had and turns out i still had some photos of the original wood installed. I thought they were lost for good.

I had the wood placed wrong, according to my photos and I'm back on track.
