The two screws at the ends of the windshield scuttle cover - it looks like they are supposed to have a cap on them.

Can somebody post a picture of that cap?

It's a two piece finish cap, there's a plastic washer with a raised rim that fits under the screw head, the finish cap snaps onto that. If you can't find them through a Brit supplier you can find them at your local hardware store, although you may need to paint them.

I saved this from someone else's post (sorry for whoever posted it, I don't recall who it was). These are ones you can get at the hardware store and are a good match.

The panel at the bottom of the windscreen that the wiper stems stick up through
