    Hood Gap

    Could one of you guys measure out the gap on the hood between the hood and the fender. I'm trying to align my new(ish) hood and having a bitch of a time getting the gap.

    I was told use a paint stir stick but I need to know if they are the same thickness.

    I'd post pictures but Photobucket is doing some strange stuff right now, but I measured 1/4" gap from the hood to the fender.

    I had a similar issue with mine on both sides...

    The gap ran from perfectly ok to too big at the front end.

    I made some plastic washers of a decent outside diameter to spread the load and a hole
    for the bolt which i think is about quarter inch. If you undo the mounting bolt
    and slip it under and in the gap it is invisible and brings the fender over nicely
    once re-fastened. You would never know it is there.

    If memory serves me i did two different thicknesses of washer to help "taper" the adjustment
    to end up with a nice parallel gap. about 3mm and 2mm i think
