several years ago my vette was put up in the air...changing oil.... once down and driving away...I noticed that the hood appeared to stay up? Years have gone by and what appears to be happening is the front end is moving. The gap between the door and the front fender is clearing changing....on top probably 3/4 inch and on the bottom....less then 1/8 inch...it is worse on the passenger side. Image if you will that the nose is going down...therefore moving the back of the front fendor up.
Hope that makes sense?
questions: 1. What do you think is going on? I was told that it was probably in an accident and the adhesive is failing.
2. Will it eventully stop shifting? 3. is this common?
4. easily fixable?
Any input would be greatly appreciated
