Looking at the hood like a clock 1,6,7 o'clock are rubbing.11 and 5 o'clock have a quarter inch gap.It looks like
the front of the body is racked.Any suggestions are welcome.Going to try using a jack and 4X4 first to straighten the body.
Good idea but it didn't
I took the hood hinge off
and found the body slot was wore.I repaired the slot but it didn't help the problem.
Another look at the hood.The
middle is so tight it somtimes buckles when opening.
On this problem I ground the
welds that holds the nose in place,spread the nose to widen the opening for the front of the hood and re-welded the nose panel.I
also slit the fender on the right side 1/2" from the hood edge to close the gap and re-welded.
