I'm having a little trouble with the kit i got from MAMW. Could someone with engine lid stand-offs take a picture of them? I'm not sure which side is the "underside." Thanks. I just want a picture of them installed and I can figure it out from there. Something about them confuses me, i dunno.

They should be installed so that they are pointing upwards after the bend.  --Ryan

So the smoother side should be pointing up?

There's a V shaped piece of tubing made especially for snapping on to hold the lid up while you work on it,  They're very cool, but cost about $20...so I use a golf club shaft.  I usually have the syandoffs removed during the winter.

I've got a friend with a '60 and he runs the standoffs with his spring.

If you remove it, a pair of screwdrivers make a nice decklid prop
