Bonnet slider for 1970 1275GT

No rubber covers shown in any of the parts manuals I have. It should be body colour.

Should my 1970 1275GT have a rubber cover( the same as seat adjusting knob part no CZK8289) ';)' on the bonnet release lever?

The cover is for the bonnet release on a round nose Mk4 (1976) onwards. Check the diagrams on the Somerford site. There is no cover on the GT as per the 3 parts books that I have (1969, 1976 and 1980). My GT does not have one fitted.

This is a shot of TFR, a very original car, note the body colour "tongue" sticking out.

I have also had a look through my 1275GT folder on Photobucket and most cars appear to have no cover on the bonnet release

That part no is shown as for both bonnet slider cover and seat but I have yet to see one fitted as bonnet slider cover
