Default Adj. on my 1967 GTO hood towards cowl

Hood sticking up to high, does that mean hood hinges after loose need to be brought towards front of the car???

It it's high in the back..yes usually means needs to come forward. On hinges

This also happens when the holes in the hinges where the rivets are are worn out. You have to push the back of the hood down.

I simply took out each mounting bolt in the rear of the hinges on both sides and replaced them with bolts without washers behind the heads. hood came in adj. real nice.
