OK, I just ran out to the parking lot to take a look at my
TR6 (74 1/2, CF 27535) to see how they are installed on it.
I don't know for certain that the seals are as applied
by the factory, but they sure seem like it!

This may be hard to explain, so let me know if it isn't
100% clear, and I'll draw something up and put it on a
WWW page for the VTR WWW pages, so you can take a look,
and be sure.

The window seal is applied so that the "O" is against the window glass.
The long flat side is attached to the trailing edge of the "L" shape
within the windshield surround.  (This may not be clear, I think I'll
try the drawing on a WWW page, just to be safe...)

This one is a little simpler, the curve goes up towards
the bonnet.  (This seal is mostly horizontal, as the seal
itself is applied to the "bent-over" top lip of the
front valence.)
