The two bolts on the hood side of the hinge simply move the hood forward and back. The two bolts where the hinge attaches to the cowl adjust the hinge, and hood up and down. I had a similar issue trying to get the hood to sit down all the way at the rear and be level with the top of the fenders. I don't recall which, but on my car I raised the front bolt while keeping the rear bolt down, or vise versa to get the hood to fit. The hood should sit all the way down on the rubber stops, which are also adjustable. Also use rags between hood and fenders to keep from scratching paint until you get it adjusted.
