72 Chevy Hood

I had a little accident with my truck. 24" of snow fell off the shop and onto my hood and bent in so it has a big crease down the middle. I found a new hood and painted it and finally got it installed. The gaps are ok, not perfect but the passenger side won't drop down all the way to level it with the fender. The drivers side is fine. I removed the rubber stop but that wasn't holding it up. I can push down on it and get it close but it goes back up when I drive. It barely touches the fender when I push it down as far as I can.

Is there an adjustment I can make to get it to lay down right? I tried greasing the hinge but that hasn't helped.
