I am trying to find how the hinges themselves mount up in the cavity of the trunk to body area. My crappy eyes aren't giving me much to see, this will be by feel.
The car does not have anything mounted.

Thank you!

I believe they bolt on from the dash side. Might be worth having a look in the blue Bentley, as I don't think the early style is covered in the brown one.

Yup. You'll want to find the 2 shoulder bolts that fit the hinges too.
