The procedure for adjusting the hinges isn't very intuitive. Instead of simply moving the hinges straight down, they have to be pivoted (up in the front / down in the back) in order to drop the back edge of the hood.

The easiest way to do that is to open the hood and have an assistant hold the front edge while you loosen the hinge-to-fender bolts. With the bolts loose, have your assistant push up on the front edge of the hood (that will pivot the hinges), then re-tighten the bolts.
