Mounting front bumper on 58-59 duo glide

Just got my fenders painted and came across a front bumper I'd like to use. Instead of messing things up maybe someone can tell me the process they use to mount the bumper. Is the front bumper tab on top or underneath fender?
How about the spacers, how do they position? not sure is bumper to opened up so hard to judge correct positioning
Thanks

Tab goes under fender, spacers go between fender mount and Bumper bracket which keeps the bumper arms from fouling the fender brackets.
