Your original bonnet will have sagged at the front middle, so be
prepared to do some bending to get it to clear the arch of the grille.  

A piece of 4 x 4 in the center of the latch panel will support the
center of the bonnet while you carefully push down on the outer edges
until the correct curvature is attained.

Apart from that, it's a straight swap.  

Personally I'm rather enjoying the unique look of my '70 "Sharkmouth"

All the best
