Rear Decklid....Quick Question

Figured I would ask this here as those with a turbo would have the answer.

I have acquired a right side (passenger side) deck lid hinge supposedly from a turbo car so I can mount a second deck lid strut to my 85 911 with a whale tail.

Only problem is this.........It was sent to me so I am not sure it is correct. This hinge has a triangle shaped plate that is spot riveted to it. On my left side hinge there is sort of a raised pad that the strut goes in between just like on the firewall. On this right side one, there is just a welded nut on the one side that appears to be where the strut attaches.

Is this the right part? Anyone that can snap a quick photo of the way their strut is mounted?

The firewall mount on the car is the same on both sides so I would think the deck hinges should be too, no?
