Hood lock location

Greetings everyone. My twin brother and I each own California Specials. They are both in the process of restoration. His car is in Germany. Mine is in Florida. My car has not been on the road in over 23 years. My question is: What is the correct hood lock placement?
My hood was missing.
P. Nerwitt's book gives the measuremnt from the side - (5 inches). However, to line up with the retainers on my car, I need to drill the holes at 5-1/2. No measurement is given from the front. My brother's is 7 1/2 inches from the front line. Is it ok to drill at 5-1/2 or should I move the retainers to line up wirh the side measurement prtovided in Newitt's book on page 44?
