I restored a '47, which I drove for about 7 years & a good friend still has his '50. One thing we both found out is that you will never get the hood right (aside from a very high end resto). It's the nature of the beast. Check out all of the other trucks like yours at the shows & you'll see that none of the hoods are perfect. A lot of them have paint chipping off where the hoods touch the fenders. Go with the flow & be happy with the fact that you've done your best with in inherently flawed situation.
