The sharp metal ridges underneath the hood and trunk of our cars have always appeared unfinished, and are easily chipped following a fresh paint job. This rubber edge trim

is sufficiently flexible that a single piece can accommodate the sharp bends of either hood or trunk so that no gaps remain following installation. Patience is required, though, along with 3M weatherstrip adhesive, their Edge-Lock painter’s tape, a few c-clamps, and a dental pick tool. Can still be a bit frustrating, so probably best not to have small children within hearing distance whilst installing.
The installation under hood causes no interference problems, and may be installed under the deck lid if the Fairlady is "fair weather only" and does not have weatherstrip glued to the lid.
