It has a Nova clip, we have no idea then if the rad support is at the right height. With the rad support too high or too low, we have no idea. By the way the hood fits, it looks like it's too low.

My truck isn't together so I don't have any numbers for you, but you are going to need to make some measurements from the top of the cowl down to the bottom of the rad support, and of course have another original truck to see if yours is the same.

And the motor will be in the way so you are going to have to come up with another way. But THAT is the first thing you will need to do, figure out if rad support is the right height.

you are absolutly correct. i been outside for about three hours and just figured that out. as far a spreading the fenders i think they are correct. i got the support rods set according to the spec. 27 and 271/2". i have room between the hood an fender but the back of the hood is hitting the bottom of the cowl so it will not go down any further in the front. i even remove the hood lock and spring and it still won't go. i will try to get some measurements some how thanks

Remember, you are working with repro sheetmetal so those rod settings don't mean a think. You set them up to WORK not by the book.
