Phillip & Steve, glad I helped & I mentioned because so many don't know that while it is common knowledge to others. While I did figure it out all om my own in the early 90's before internet, (silicone grease for T-tops squeak issue) a simple google search or question post here would have got a quick answer. As with many of life's small annoying problems , it takes far less time to fix than talk about.
Here's a 2004 post:: https://www.elcaminocentral.com/showthread.php?t=2726
Forums are here partly so those of us who know or figured things out the hard way can spend more time enjoying their elky's & less fussing with it.
Please do a search first & then ask here if you don't find an answer.

|pmnelson57||I searched for 2 years for a squeak coming from the dash area on my 79 until I just read your comment about the need to lube the 3rd hood bumper at the rear of the hood. It took me 30 seconds to fix a squeak that has annoyed me for ages. You are a genius!|

Maaco near my work & a few others in my area actually can do that nice of a paint job if you know who to talk to & pay accordingly.
You may even find that style of hood bumpers in the help section at local auto parts stores as they were a common style, wouldn't hurt to have new anyways. There is also a 3rd bumper at the center of the windshield cowl, which needs occasional lube not to cause a squeak that sounds like it's coming from your dash.

|Wolfgang||A little off the subject. Does this look like Maaco.|

|Wolfgang||Let's make this clear . My car was not painted at Maaco and I will put this paint job on my car up against the best|

I've seen multiple styles listed for sale online. I see you have an 80 as I. Here is a pic of where mine are located. Don't look at the mess of wires. Those have all been tidied up.

Hi Leonard In my opinion the body shop should buy them
and replace where they go. Just my two cents. Russ

Hood bumpers on G body
Body shop removed and lost them . I can buy new ones. But what do they thread into.
