If your hood fits bad. Thats your problem.. If a manufacturer makes a hood. It becomes his problem.. A problem that has no reasonable (inexpensive) solution for the manufacturer.. As stated before Ford couldn't make them fit.. The Fairlane product guy told me this one day while I was buying some fender and dash seconds from their manufacturing shop. I was looking for a hood also..
Finally a logical explanation.
These hoods are made in 3 major pieces - before I sold the car, my plan was to weld it up, get rid of the center strip, smooth it, and make a mold...
