View Full Version : Jeepster hood/fender alignment issues

07-06-2017, 04:29 PM
Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?
I cannot seem to get the passenger side to sit down any farther. its not touching anywhere that would be keeping it up.
Would not having all the fender bolts in do that? ( only have 2 in the body and 2 in the grill)

the hood wont sit down any further and adjusting it thats the closest I can get it.. Ideas?
the hood also has a 1 inch gap over the front of the grill on the passenger side but only a 3/4 inch gap on the drivers. ideas?

WOW, i always put all the bolts in and never tighten any until i get it aligned, you cant see it but something is preventing from seating, at my stage all the pieces and parts are in a pile, so i will probably have much the same issue you are having, good luck

On the '48 truck, the hood had blown up twice when the safety latch failed. When it did,it sprung the hood outward. It took a lot of work to get it back to the original curve but as of now, only I know it isn't exactly where it started. It may be sprung ....
