Hi Jim...my TR3 (57, small mouth)...would give me more worries if it did Not rattle, but the bonnet (hood) ... I learned that lesson when I forgot to lock the dzus down in a test run after some work was done...got whacked on the head, broke the windshield, and the bonnet was toast... so I have rattling but nothing falls off so I’m good.🥴
These cars were made to drive...so just have fun.

Best Wishes 🤞
