I wanted to post a thank you to all who helped with this thread. As you can see the hood fits somewhat normally although, I wish I could find another 1/16th of an inch. I found a warped core support that I believe happened in the paint shop. I'm thinking they used it to hoist the body onto rollers. It's the only reason I can think of to explain the "fit good before" scenario. The core support had just enough bow in it to allow the front rib on the hood to hit before proper alignment could be reached. Thanks again fellas, sorry it took so long to get back to you with the findings.
this is a few weeks ago. I was able to get the grab bar and some wiring done last week end
