After some fussing the hood finally got mounted:
I have smoothed the front emblem holes and welded the seam in preparation for smoothing that as well:
That hood was 1/2" too wide. I had to use another hood. It has issues also:
The mounting bolts are broken off in the holes or were cut on this side.
The braces were removed and a few louvers were added:
208 Louvers to be exact.
I will finish up hiding the seam and smooth out the emblem plate recesses.
The hood won't sit down on the body correctly.
It wants to bow up in the center:
and pinch in on the sides:
It sits correctly in the front.
