I used parts off of 2 different scouts when I put mine together, a 78 and 79. I go to put my freshly painted hood on and it sets allmost an inch and a half to high in the front when it is closed. I have messed with all the adjustments and can't get it right. I think it is a 79 hood bolted to a 78 front end. Did they change something between the two years? I have all the different parts and looking at the stuff it all looks the same. My other scout as well as others I have seen ,the hood doesn't fit very good but this is really bad.
