From the factory, there were shims between the hood and and hinge. These shims are no longer available AND are NOT reproduced. So just use use small washers, works fine.
PAY ATTENTION TO THIS! WHEN SCREWING THE BOLTS IN WHICH HOLD THE HINGE TO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE HOOD, BE CAREFUL THAT THEY ARE NOT TOO LONG. IF THEY ARE A LITTLE TOO LONG AND YOU SCREW THEM INTO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE HOOD TOO FAR, YOU WILL HAVE BUMPS APPEAR ON THE TOP SIDE OF THE HOOD. ---------guess how I know.
