c5 corvette z06

by Taylor

I bought this corvette and the hood never lined up. I got it checked by 2 auto body shops and the frame was bang on. I just purchased an oem hood and installed it. It fits better but i still had to shim both sides up. and the back near the windshield sits down to far but if i raise the hood it goes past the fenders. I had to shim it up as much as 3 washers per side. I can get the hood to fit the fenders without using the shims but then the headlights sit way to high and the front bumper as well. Can you adjust your headlights to move straight down. I got to move them at least a half inch down as well as the front clip. Also guys does your hood line up absolutely perfect in the back by the windshild.
