Hood Adjustment?

Got the "new" factory hood painted & installed, but the driver's side rear sits up too high. The passenger side is a bit high but not nearly as much as the driver's. Is there any way at all to adjust this, or am I just stuck with it? Pics below for reference:

Re: Hood Adjustment?

does indeed look a little high , sure theres nothing down the fenders inside preventing it going down? also check the rubber stoppers on hood make sure they are fully installed correct.

at hinge points maybe a way to adjust the hood, never tried this or needed to alter mine.
