Default 1940 tudor deluxe hood latch help needed!

When i last closed my hood it seems the whole hood had shifted forward 3/8-1/2". It did latch tho upon remembering it was harder to close the latch down

Any suggestions on how to unlatch it? I can not get the main latch to lift. Tried to look between the grill bars but dont really know what to look for to try and get it to release, plus i have a sheet metal air deflector covering the latch area.

Sorry if I'm not using the correct terms for the parts

This is a hot rod/street rod, not an original.
