This is my first post on ANY forum. I'm new to GTO's, and I just purchased a 71 and I'm pretty tickled. The first thing I noticed was that the front hood vents don't line up cleanly. (I've removed them and it appears that there is a spacer, maybe stacked washer behind them on the mounting bracket. ) They just don't come up cleanly against the upper hood opening, and that has me bugged. Most of the photo's I've looked at show there IS an up to 1/4 in. space or misalignment there, then others show nice clean lines where the upper edge of the vents meets the hood opening. Do I simply live with it, start sanding the hood, get a life? Any ideas/opinions are greatly appreciated...Thanks, Steve.
