Thanks to all with their ideas on how to improve the alignment of  the bonnet 
on my bugeye.  I just went out and removed the Victoria British  hard rubber 
strip and it improved some, but not enough.  It never fit right  and was 
hitting the hood in a couple of spots.  When I installed  it I had to make a 
chamfer with a razor blade to get it started in the  channel and still found it 
difficult to bottom it at all  locations in the channel.  The rubber is too 
hard to conform  properly.
The corners are higher than the center so I think my next step is  to play 
with the corner braces to pull the corners down some more.  One  side has room 
in the slotted end to move it some.  The other brace is  at the end of the slot 
and it looks like a PO bent the brace some to bring the  lower back edge of 
the hood in somewhat.  Any other thoughts would be  appreciated.
