How to properly adjust hood?

So I'm having some trouble adjusting my hood properly. The upper corners of the hood stick up and I've tried messing with the bracket to get it flush with the fender. It's a GM SS hood on my z28. I thought it would bolt right on but I guess not...

How to properly adjust hood?

Just the thread I didn't want to see, but subscribing.. Thought the SS OEMs didn't have these issues and fit just like the steel hoods..
You are 100% certain this is an OEM? Is it possible that it flexed while someone stored it or something? I notice that a lot of people seem to store these up against a wall and stand them on the area that yours doesn't align correctly,
I guess I should probably test fit mine before I have it painted...

Maybe you'll get lucky and not have fitment issues. I'm 100% certain it's a GM hood \. I used the same hardware from my old hood, but I doubt that's the issue

Re: How to properly adjust hood?

Any ideas out there? Would I have to drill new holes to move the bracket lower??
