Its funny because he has had some....hood issues in the past.


Your sure its not hitting anything, like the back of your M112 for example? If not then yes it is probably off alignment. Something else to try, you could try twisting the rubber stops on the front corners of the engine bay (they rubber catches for your hood) to the right to lower them and see if that helps. I have had that problem before and that was the issue.

Cut completely through the hood or just the padding?

Does it close to the point to where you have to open the hood from the inside before you can un-latch it? If not you're not safe driving the car that way.
