2. Where can I get the clips/nuts? to hold the grill in from the inside of the hood?

3. Car is Gulfstream Aqua with reflective group in white. Dealer sticker shows 2 tone hood.
a. what color is the insert
b. where can I get a correct template or guide
c/ anyone have a photo of white striped car with this hood?
Thanks in advance!

On the hood grille inserts, they're held in place with "push nuts". Major parts vendors like Virginia Classic Mustang or NPD has. Maybe local H/W store.
Note: as some know that have owned or seems these 67/68 hood grilles, the tiny vertical bar that they go into break or grilles rattle a bit. What I've seen at least once was very tiny rubber "O" rings pushed onto mounting post of little grille before mounting it with push nut. Helps keep grille tight and from rattling. What I did on mine.

As for hood stripe, I believe follow from grille inserts straight back to windshield as I've seen them.
Color maybe match your side GT stripe color, a guess.
Couple pics from Google:

Turn Signal Grills are same as Body Color. Two Tone hood only came in Low-Gloss Black (see attached). Reflective Group for GT Stripes and Styled Steel Wheels only.
