I have one concern about the hinges.

(I believe) They must take the hood almost straight up a few inches before tilting as the lower front corners of the hood at the front are gonna hit the rad shroud. I hope I'm wrong.
Look at the far side of the hood front in the last pic, far right. It appears that he has taken the route I would think to... the angled part is cut away in the shroud contact zone and theres a little corner wedge trimmed away to clear on the approach.
