'Ulster' hood fastening
#1
I have a question for owners of 'Ulster'-type cars that have a hood (if there are any out there?). The windscreen has two lugs, pointing backward and the hood frame peak has two brackets with slots into which the lugs locate. How does the hood frame lock to the screen? I have examined my copies of Chris Gould's tract on constructing an ulster, Rincey Mills and Brian Purves, Source Book and am no wiser.

Is it that the windscreen wing nuts are loosened and the screen pushed backwards to press the lugs downwards when in the slots before then tightening the wing nuts again? Or should there be a lip or channel in the peak that the screen glass tucks into?
