I studied the various hood suppliers before buying. I believe that Ecklers (my supplier) produces the best hood.

His fits the original hood perimeter, whereas mine is the long style which eliminates the wiper door assembly.

I also learned many things while fitting mine. Had I to do it again it would be much easier to accomplish.

#1-file smooth and level the hinge attach areas on the inner fender line.

#2- make spacer shims for the hinges right away.

#3- work the flush fit first, then the margin gaps.

Other than that, piece of cake:cheers:
