This step shows the centerline hinge installed (before match drilling the holes in the hinge to the cowling) with the cowling clecoed down the middle and screwed to the fuselage.  Once you are happy with the fit, pilot drill the holes in the cowling (1/8 inch) and cleco through the holes. Remove the shim, loosen all of the screws, jiggle the cowling around (let it move in the mounting holes), lift it, shove side-to-side and see where it wants to be.  Adjust as necessary.
