Just an aside, and another thing to look at (which I just went through in my reassembly).

Is the hood far enough forward? I was realigning Ms. Jenavieve's hood this weekend (the left to right alignment is lots of fun!) and we had the same issue, and when I stepped back to look at it I realized that the hood was slid "too far back" on the hinges. Even if the pin looks like it's lining up right, because of the curve of the hood it sits differently on the supports at the front corners depending on the front/back alignment.

When we moved it forward (at least on my car, looking at pictures before I removed the hood, the front edge should extend just a bit past the headlight scoops) the pin dropped right in with plenty to spare.
