I checked the package the parts came in to see if maybe it fit several years - but it was listed as only for 1969
So I will guess that those are for the headlight adjuster screws.

Thanks for the help

I've been working on putting new weatherstripping around the side windows and the doors

Job is going pretty good but the plastic push pins that hold the front of the roof-rail weatherstripping in place were much larger and wouldn't push into the body (metal), so I just re-used the originals that were still good

This job has gone better than I thought it would

Guess I finally got to the hard part of replacing some of this weatherstripping
The outer window seals/wipers are a bear.
That little lip that needs to stay on top of the metal door edge is hard to get to stay in place while I'm trying to get everything lined up and screws started.
I've got one door done so I'll get the other one - somehow
