    easy way..
    make a loop in the middle of the ribbon, simple knot, enough to go round the spike, but the knot stays under the hood, not visible.
    lower the bonnet down but do not secure it.
    tails up to the cabin thru the door and secured onto the sunvisor post (swivel)
    before hacking up as tight as you can get it, make sure the ribbon is flat and even over the front of the hood, and as high up the door pillar you can
    - tighten your knots ..
    Happy? secure the hood ..

    It helps when both yer Mam n Dad were both wedding chauffeurs in the past ..

    Ribbons were looped around the front grille centre support and tucked in under the door seals (between seal and A pillar flange) to keep them high at the door tops.

    At the Wing Commanders daughters wedding last year we slightly unscrewed the interior A pillar moulding & slid the ends behind & tightened them back up again, no tape needed & they stayed nice & tight ;)
