Default Hood latch.....

My hood rides just a hair higher than the tops of the fenders.

Is there anyway to adjust the hood latch so it pulls the hood down where it evens out the line of the hood equal to the fenders?????

Yes, but you also need to lower the rubber stops equally. 2 bolts on the latch.....10mm I think, and then the stops at the front corners.

yes the bumpers on the core support are what gives the hood its height when closed, I believe that you can adjust them with your hand..... no tools requited
