    If removing a nice gapped Hood, trunk, door on good hinges; Drill pilot hole & set screw into a spot from hinge to part. Then, when replacing, someone guides screws into the pilot holes before final hinge bolts attached, & alignment should be very close to pre-removal.

    Maybe not a good idea on a nice hot rod, but when I was on the line and I had to remove the hood, I would take my scribe and outline the hinge on the hood. Then when I put it back, just put the hood back inside the lines. Saved time and on the line time was money!
