Radiator Mounting Pads 37' 120c

Could someone please tell/show me where radiator mounting pads go on my '37 120C? I have 4 radiator mounting pads purchased from Steele 30-0208-31 they are "pad, radiator lower splash to grille. Fasten into place with rivets". My car did not have such pads, I am currently installing the splash valences and radiator and cannot see where the pads go.

I just finished putting my 1936 120 together. The pads go in indentations on the outside of the bottom of the black sheet metal piece that goes into the radiator shell/grille assembly. I believe they are just to keep the sheet metal from rattling against the outer part of the shell. 2 on each side.
If yours is like mine the way the assembly was installed was quite easy.
The heavy black piece with the sheet metal piece was set in place with the big bolt at the bottom center installed in the large heavy black piece. Then the radiator was installed. Then the outer shell with grille was put in position. All of the mounting bolts were not tightened so a lot of adjusting could be done.
