Default Hood adjustment?

We all have gaps in our hoods, I have seen plenty of Cruisers on the road with 1/4-1/2" gaps between the hood and fender. Has anyone tried to readjust the hood to a-line properly? the wierd thing is some cars good ok, others (like mine) have one side with a wide gap, seems to be only one side when its off. [:I]

easy fix. open up your hood, there's 4 bolts that attach it to the hinges. Loosen one side up a little bit to where you can move the hood a little but it won't slip from the hinge, move it down if you want it closer to the fender and up if you want it farther. When you let the hood back down though be careful to make sure you have enough room to clear the fender, I almost made that mistake when installing my fiberglass hood. Just move it in increments until you get it where you want it and then don't forget to tighten the bolts back up.
Life dealt me a hand and I\'m bluffing hard, I\'m playing poker with a joker and some uno cards.

Would the little bump-stops in the front control that as well? (hinge for rear height, rubber stops for front height)
