Hood adjustment 93 Si

My front hood is slightly off center and I am trying to realign it. It may just be cosmetic but it bothers me. My understanding (from the threads I have searched) is that the hinges are where you adjust the hood position but after working on it I couldnt get much change on it. To confirm the location I have pics. Any advise? Maybe I should skip this till later but it aggrivates me lol

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hood height adjustment?


loosen all 4 that connect the hinge to the hood at the same time, you should be able to slide it left/right.

Re: Hood adjustment 93 Si

did it work out yet homie ? cause those are the bolt u need, there are slots instead of holes on em, so they can be adjusted around a bit, than after u got it straight and are happy with that, u have lil rubber adjusters behind your headlights and can adjust the hood height independently...
enjoy'

Re: Hood adjustment 93 Si

lol I did all the adjustments I could think of and tried to "customize" it with brute force. The lines sit right on the side, but the left side at the nose is too high, the left side midway between the windshield and nose is too low, the right side at the nose is too low and and at midway its too high... ladies and germs, I think this man needs a new hood! Who likes carbon fiber? ::

Feeler (no not like a priest...) : Opinions on hood pins with CF hoods? Needed vs not, pretty vs WTF-did-you-do-to-that-car, normal cf oem hood vs xtreme gt/gforce/whatever
