    If you purchase a warped fiberglass hood, you're just screwed.

    I'm having issues with my VFN hood fitting as well and I know it's the hood and not the car so I'm trying to find a solution but I'll post pics when is done to show how I fixed it

    Some what I have it on I loosened the front clip and got it all lined up but I found when I drive the car it heats up and warps so I thinking I'm going to solve that with hood pins I also modified the hood hinge spring inner mount so it lifts and shuts with the stock stuff
