Fiddled around with the hood fit more tonight to no avail. Without major modifications to the factory stamped hinges or without moving the hood hinge mount nuts lower on the fenders idk how to make the hood lower. I mounted the aftermarket fesler billet hinges I have and it sure seems like they're designed to have more downward stroke which is exactly what I need. Who knows though until I get the hood on. Both my helpers- dad, who lives next door, and my wife- went in before I had the hinges assembled and mounted. I look forward to mounting the hood up again on these fesler hinges tommorow and finding that I can get th additional 10-12mm downward adjustment I need. I may have to do some custom fab work to make clearance for bolts in the cowl. Hope and pray that tomorrow night works out well!!
