When you adjust the hood cover the back edge and area under the windshield with blue painters tape to prevent nick or scratches, then loosen the hinge to hood bolts until the will move with a bit of force but not slide freely, close the hood then using the heal of your hands tap on the front until you get the gap your looking for and tighten up the bolts your done.

Cliff notes for hood adjustment:

 

Hinges on body:  raises/lowers front edge of the hood in relation to the nose panel.  Do this one first

Hinges on hood:  moves hood fore and aft in relation to body.  Do this one second

adjusters on side latch plates:  raises/lowers rear edge of hood in relation to body.  Do this one last.

Need to add yaw.

addendum- if the torsion rods that hold the hood up are too far out of adjustment,

they can affect fore- aft quite a bit, as they have more rigidity than the bars on the 

nose that hold the hood hinges.

 

They can also whack hell out of the paint on the tops of the fenders.
