Aftermarket Medic Hood
 
So i just installed a new aftermarket Medic hood, it fits good but is a little high on the driver side even with the hood adjuster all the way down does anyone know of any ways to fix this?

You can raise the passenger side so that the driver side goes down, you may also have to lower the hood latch. I actually had to mess around with the factory hood, going so far as to enlarge the hood latch hole so I could make the hood lower.

ahhh, I think I know the vendor then. Can you post some pics of the underside? I asked the vendor for some underhood pics and he never got back to me.

supposedly this hood is much lighter than stock and you may need different hood props or risk flexing the fibreglass to much, perhaps even contributing to fitment problems.

how are the gaps between the fenders?

yup, thats the vendor I saw, seems to me they are the same as "Sarona".

the thing that struck me as odd, what looks like the same hood appears at different times with different costs, makes me wonder if they sell some hoods with defects at lower costs.

anyway, I've only read that some guys with fibreglass hoods use a worn out hood prop so as not to damage the fibreglass.

my jeep is the same color as yours, I'd either try a color match or some vinyl wrap, e.g. carbon fibre pattern wrap.

Yeah I only seen that one on there.
I could see why they would do that.

Yeah I was just very impatient
so I plasti dipped it but my garage was too cold so it didn't stick too well
