I'd like to add a little to already good comments.
If you don't have truss rods,use (temporary) turnbuckles from your local hardware store.they'll pull it in closer for you.I've used thicker plates at (behind)anchor points to pull more evenly.You could also consider widening hood where it gets narrower(try temp wedge inside hood sides)Like mentioned before you prob have to add shims to cradle etc., tweak it and have lotsa patience,good luck
any pics of it?
