Cupped sandpaper in palm of your hand, take half a dozen strokes, check it out, repeat and repeat and repeat, eventually is starts to look really good and you get a nice natural rounding where the radius or the edge nicely matches the body.
I took another approach. I "keystoned" instead of rounded the hood edges. It fits into the body hood opening with an exact matching shape. I rolled the trunk opening with a drip edge and put the weatherstrip on the lid not the body. Who cares? I don't know, I was just in a zone at the time. It came out nice though. Check my buildsite for the how to.
