Default New fiberglass hood giving me fits?? alaignmant

I cannot get front edge of hood down no matter what i try?? Take a look at the picture,s any help would be appreciated.To get back of hood to line up with cowl i had to loosen both side bolts while hood was up. and it looks good
but now front edge of hood will not come down.Both bumpers are off underneath so thats not the problem. Tryed everything. If i loosen up both bolts on the side of the hingge and tilt hood down in front the back sticks up over 1/2 inch. Possible i have to open slots up even more than from the factory on my hood hinges???

Helpfull hint, after studying the problem i took rear mounting bolt out of the hinges, that had a very large washer behind the head of the bolt. I simply replaced them with a bolt without a washer and hood now fits 80% better.
Now for a little tweaking!!! Washer was hitting the hinge frame.
