Thanks so much for taking the time to post and explain - that makes great sense.

I’ve been a little reluctant to use a BFH but after the struggle I’ve had, I was coming to the conclusion that it’s what is needed.

So I guess I need to:

Centralize the hood on the scuttle.

Take the fenders off and bang the hood aprons (frame rails) in a little more than needed - wood block and BFH in hand)

Hang the fenders and carefully tap the hood aprons back out - across the bolts with wood block as you say, to get a good gap.

Go back to the fender door gaps and clean them up.

Dang - that could have saved me 8hrs or more!

Thanks for the great advice!
