Check your rear hinge adjustments, setting a hood is a PIA!!!

good luck

Any hood requires some patience and skill to get right....but many of the fiberglass aftermarket hoods are a POS....Unfortunely for you looking at your pictures I would say you got one..

Unless you have experience aligning a hood, you might just want to take it to a good body shop to do it for you. DIY is difficult if you've never done it before. The hood needs to be moved in 3 dimensions and every slight adjustment results in a changing of the X,Y and Z axis in ways that aren't predictable or intuitive.

This. There is a reason it was only $250.00. Unfortunately, any money saved will be spent on a good body man, correcting it.
Good luck, hope it works out for ya.

I've never tried to fit a hood, so all I can say is' "Good Luck!"

I have seen many posts about the fg hoods, so one thing I can say is, "Get Hood Pins!" I've seen the pics of the latch breaking out of the cheap hoods, usually at a high rate of speed. Not pretty.

Also, hood pins can help pull the corners down a little, if everything else can be lined up right.
