Default Bud Vases for our Granddaughters wedding

Our first grandchild, a granddaughter, is getting married this summer and our 1930 Tudor, Ol Jenny, gets to participate in the wedding. Our grandchildren grew up riding in the car and actually were the ones who provided her with a name. I felt bud vases would be a good addition for the wedding, so I did find a pair that we are happy with. Now I need help. I know being after market there are no set rules, but on a Tudor where have those of you with them mounted them. I have seen between side windows, behind rear side window and to the sides of the back window. I would appreciate ideas, knowing there is no right or wrong. Thanks for your help.

On my Special Coupe, I mounted them just behind the rear quarter window. On a tudor I would probably do the same. I think if you mount them on the door pillar, they would be hit every time someone enters the back seat.

Does anyone have vases in a Tudor? There is no wood behind the rear side windows.

My friend has them in his Tudor. He screwed it into the hardboard itself they are tight and never moved... The screws are pretty little that come with the brackets

My original brackets do not have screws, but a #6 will fit through the holes. If attaching to the hardboard would a slotted 3/8" or 1/2" full thread sheet metal screw work?

Although not a tudor, mine are also mounted to the hardboard for several years now no problem.

I mounted my bud vase to one of the rear window molding screws on my Victoria. I used the driver side rear window and mounted it on the forward edge.
