Any Good Tips for Hood Adjustment-1966 Mustang
After having my hood fly open and causing the prerequisite damage- minor bending, luckily, I managed to get the hood back in pretty good shape.
However, I need to realign some of the side spacing on it. The drivers side between the hood and fender has about maybe 3/8 to a 1/2 inch gap and the passenger side is pretty tight, about a 1/4 inch or less.
I tried some basic brute things, pushing the hood while fully open from the passenger side towards the drivers side, but am afraid to put too much torque on it for fear of damaging the hinges more.
I also adjusted the hinges a bit, to get my vertical alignment back to normal. Also, played around with the bolts where the hinge actually connects to the hood, but my side to side spacing is off.
I have done some internet searching, but not comeup with some simple Mustang based hood alignment tricks.
I know someone here has some, thanks.
