The bonnet prop consist of two brackets and a rod. When the bonnet is open the rod is place on the bracket nearby the radiator. When the bonnet is closed the rod is placed in the rubber clamp in the middle of the bonnet nearby the hings. (See photo)

Parts needed to rebuild the bonnet prop

On internet I see different type of clamps for the “closed position”. But the original pop rivet holes are different and the original bracket looks original to me. I removed the metal clip (left side) and replaced it with a rubber clip, which I removed from a new one bought on internet (right side)
