You can see how bad the hood intially lined up with my car from the previous posts. But I haven't hear anything negative about Sun Coast.
    I'd say you did a pretty nice job. Yeah, you had to mess around with it, but would you say the money saved was worth your time??? If you want to get it to line up a little better yet, remember you can loosen the bolts that hold your fender and raise it up a hair to match the hood.

    Good work!!!!

    Still needs a little more work! *sigh*
    Well, you're getting there. Looks a ton better.
