Hood Chafing?

My hood is grinding the paint off of my fenders where they contact.
Is there some strip or something that is supposed to keep that from happening?

no, you just need rubber stoppers that go between the hood and the grill to keep the hood from touching the fenders.

Correct, the hood should not touch the fenders. Does your grill have the 4 spacers or bumpers along the upper edge?

I had the same issue, the rubber bump stops were all broken down allowing the hood to hit the fenders. If you have an old v-belt take a section of that and run along where the bumpers should be, worked great for me.

Does anyone know where to get the bumpers that go on the cowl, to contact the rear of the hood?

How did you fasten it? Do you have any pics?

I used little stove bolts through the holes where the original bumpers were. I don't have pictures of it.

If anyone was willing to measure the sizes, this place might have something that would work. They have a lot of 3/16" stoppers:

Of course they're not necessarily any cheaper than the Omix-Ada part.
