Thanks Wilder. If you have any more observations please PM me so I can include your findings in the relevant posts otherwise we have discontinuity. All findings most welcome!

I will merge you two posts into the relevant topics.

Part number BD.19917, the bonnet resting bracket. The later ones had the outer corner cut off to better clear the bonnet catch, but these are the originals off the car. On the 4.2 these brackets have a gasket behind them but the parts book doesn't list the gasket! Any ideas anyone?

I just took these out of storage and had the gaskets that were on the car in 2002 when I dismantled the car. They appear to be some kind of nylon(?) material. They are brittle and much squashed by time. They look similar to a woven synthetic type material one might find on a shoulder strap for a cheap utilitarian shoulder bag or the shoulder strap that came on my leaf blower.

I really go to put this thing back together

The cloth version was used on the 3.8 cars which this thread details. The 4.2 cars had the synthetic gasket.
