In the USA, the hood trim was attached with "stamped" nuts that used an inside nut driver due to the limited clearance for a standard nut and socket to tighten the nut.

Those stamped nuts are on the Aussie AMX's as well.
 Here's a better picture.
 There are two stamped nuts with a wire clip between on each side.
The nut extension on the right is a cunning way of getting around the problem.
The fasteners I made yesterday went on OK, but as you pointed out clearance was limited. ( I used a small socket )

John,
  You're an inspiration to us all. With only 24 Aussie AMX's ever made, to see 4 of them in one garage 49 years later is amazing! Your fabrication work and detail is impressive, thanks for sharing. My daughter lives in Perth, WA, but at my age, I doubt I'll ever be able to visit. Still enjoying the posts from members outside the US who take on these challenging restorations.

TX390AMX,  Thankyou, but to clarify, only three are Aussie assembled AMX's and one of those belongs to a friend. 
The Alamosa Aqua AMX is a US import converted to RHD using parts from an Aussie assembled 1970 Javelin. I plan to work on it after I complete the Yellow one. The previous owner of the Alamosa Aqua AMX has done some brilliant work on it. I need to learn alot more to finish it to the same standard.
  Hope you can visit Perth. Call in here too.  My wife & I visited your country in 2014. Car people over there who we spent time with have come over here and stayed with us. Good cars are beaut but the real treasure in a car forum is the people you meet.

Our Aussie AMX's came out with Dunlop Aquajet ER70H14 tyres.
 
When I was looking for tryes the same size, H speed rating and not too expensive I could only find
whitewalls.  At a recent car show I met a bloke said if I had 10 tyres to do he would come to our house and do them. Got the tyres flipped over on the rims and put a redline on them yesterday.
 Happy with the result. Pretty cool watching that red line come round as it is first applied to the tyre.

 That ditch is a problem for both of us Doug. Sure would like to catch up with MAD MAX and the others.
Merry Christmas to you and Faye.
