Shim the top vertical cowl bolt first to set fender height to the door, shim the front horizontal cowl bolt to set the door-to-fender gap, shim the horizontal bolt at the upper rear to set in-out fender-to-door flush above the feature line, then shim the bottom two vertical bolts to set fender-to-door flush below the feature line. Leave the two radiator support-to-subframe bolts and the diagonal brace tubes until last, after you've squared-up the hood opening to the hood by moving the radiator support laterally.
