Default 38' Hood/Fender Aprons Mounting Help?

81A-16750-RK Fender Apron/Hood Mount Kit

Can someone give me a clue on where this hardware mounts. When I bought my 38' Deluxe thefenders and hood were not on the car. Icould guess where some of this might go but could be way off.

Each apron has 3 indentions and 2 notches per panel andboth have an 'L" shaped brackets at the front of each and nut at the rear andI have no idea where or what these mount to. Additionally on each side of the cowl there are three large holes thatare cover by these panels, what are these for?

Thanks to any and all for your help

Mounts the inner to outer front fenders.
Drake's catalog online should have an illustration.

The "L" shaped bracket near the front are to bolt to matching tabs on the radiator. The three large holes in the cowl are for rubber bumpers. The notches in the hood sides are for the threaded bolts and wingnuts that screw into the fender at matching locations.

The L shaped bracket bolts to a flat piece of metal about 3'' long that bolts to side of radiator with 2 little bolts with square sholders on them, like a small stove bolt...then there is an L shaped bracket that bolts to hood hinge, with 1/4'' threads in it,...the hole near the top of side panel is for a 1/4'' slot head screw,that screws into that bracket
