Closing '32 hood gaps

I have a finished Deuce that I am improving in little ways. Need help with hood gaps. The center bar has about 3/8" gap to the little brackets that hold it to rad and firewall. Do I need to move rad and shell back? Or can I leave radiator and sneak the shell further back?
I haven't looked at it closely, just sitting here thinking about it and decided to ask for advice.
Thanks for your suggestions.

I was always told to gap the cowl to the hood first and then adjust the grille to the hood the grille can move up down, left or right while the cowl cannot be moved.....
