What year? These have some variations... and euro spec ones do not have the VIN plate on them. 
 

early (pre 71) all metal

71-73 USA binyl

74+ vinyl with a raised hump

 

If I'm wrong about these please correct me. I'm sure I have several on the shelf, various years/types.

Hi Paul, Hope all is well! Putting the stuff together around the steering wheel/column has fallen last. I have the padded top with VIN number but in the diagram it looks like there is a plastic piece that goes under the cushion/VIN piece. This padded piece I believe is labeled #11. I don't remember #10 but I took it apart 3 and 1/2 years ago, lol. My car is a 1974.

Number 11 is the only piece used up there on 71+ cars. Number 10 is the super early all metal piece not used on later cars. 

 

One **OTHER** variation I forgot about, is that earlier cars use long MACHINE SCREWS to hold the upper and lower clam shells together, while LATER cars (74, 75, 76? Not sure when it changed) use long SELF TAPPING screws, instead. 

 

ie: It sounds like you have both pieces you need. I have other stuff (like the horn contact ring, etc etc,) if you need little bits and bobs. 

 

Hope 'dis helps!

Well that is great.  Interestingly, mine came with the machine screws! You're the best, thanks, Paul.
