I have been looking all over at photos of 1926 model t's. I know on my roadster my hood had to be rolled in the English wheel to get to fit right.

Did any of these hoods fit right to begin with?

I can't answer if they fit in the beginning, I wasn't around. But the restore jobs I have done always started out with working the fit from the radiator on back. The radiator hasn't any wiggle room but the rest of the car can be schemed or finagled to get the best fit. Just my way of doing it.

Don is correct. Start at the radiator and work backwards. Doing it in reverse isn't successful.
Only cars restored in that sequence have a reasonable / excellent fitting hood and the factory fit was woeful.
