Hey Steve,
They roll outward toward the fenders. That way when the boot is opened they 
don't bind.
Hope this helps. Working on the New 3 today, drove her for the first time 
last week, runs like a charm..I can't wait to be over 50% Triumph driving...
60 TR3A so close I can taste it
61 TR3A doing great
62 TR4 getting closer to starting the rebuild
73 Stag doing great
