Install the Good Hood in place. The trucks were painted at the factory with the hoods installed, which meant that there was a bare spot on the hinges where the hood mounting nuts and washers were painted over. We simply lined up the hood so the paint lines matched (the washer on the nut covered the bare spot). We were using this as a starting point for aligning the hood, but it turned out to be spot-on when we closed the hood and checked the fit. Sometimes you get lucky!
