Shimming down is an option but in good restoration shops shimming on hoods and decklids is a no-no. If it appears it needs one there's usually always a way to fix it without resorting to shims. I can't remember the last time I put a shim in a hood/decklid. But for DIY'ers I can see the importance of shimming down.
