On N1976T, I used the bottom of the lip in the fuselage as a reference for the top of the hinge mounting flange. On later installs, I did not bolt the hinge to the support before fitting the upper cowling. Now, I wait until the upper cowling is clecoed to the hinge and then tap the back down until the upper cowling fits flush with the fuselage. Either way will work OK.
