VIS carbon fiber hood is raised in the front (please help)

I installed a VIS hood on my 01 prelude and the hood is raised in the front by the light about a 1/2 inch. I've lowered the rubber bumpers on the frame and still is raised. Any thoughts?

I lowered the latch assembly but the hood is till raised above the left side and front of the headlight 1/2 inch. Someone told me to place something heavy on the hood for a day and it should shape it into place. Eh?

Um... I am just going with my gut here but im going to say that that probably will not help. Has your car been in an accident?

Re: VIS carbon fiber hood is raised in the front (please help)

VIS products rarely ever fit 100% even. Get hoodpins in the front and that will resolve your issue.


Same advice goes towards a VIS trunk if you ever consider getting one - pins will make that flush but otherwise it will sit higher on one side.

Lowering the hood or trunk latches can over time cause the part that goes into the latches start to wear and crack. - First hand experience.
